Batting Cleanup For the Reds

Starting Left Fielder


1991 Donruss
No. 84 Eric Davis

The powerful forearm muscles tight. The hands ready to whip the bat around. The determined stare. Mr. Davis ready to power a Spalding over the right field fence. His batting and fielding led the Reds all season to a stay in first place in the Western Division. Finishing 26 games over the Atlanta Semi-Pro Baseball Team. Who does not remember his diving catch in Game 4 where he lacerated his kidney? Eric's 5 RBI's in the series. The demoralizing 2 run homer off of Dave Stewart in Game 1 to get things rolling. He practically took the World Series trophy from the Oakland A's trophy room and taunted them from the plate with it. And the A's balked. And lost. Thank you Eric for all you did and your continued works in the fight against cancer.
