One of the most exciting players of his generation, Eric Davis elicited comparisons to Willie Mays as the centerfielder for the Cincinnati Reds.

From 1986 to 1990 he averaged 30 home runs and 40 stolen bases, won a pair of Gold Glove awards and led the Reds to a World Series victory in 1990.

Injuries limited his production for a handful of years before he returned to form in 1996 and won National League Comeback Player of the Year honors, but in 1997 as a member of the Orioles he was diagnosed with colon cancer.

Eric Davis | Baseball Legend

He returned to the field later that same season and hit a game-winning home run for the Orioles in their American League Championship Series matchup with the Cleveland Indians.

He subsequently led Bristol-Myers Squibb’s national Score Against Colon Cancer public awareness and screening campaign in 1998. He is currently a special assistant to the General Manager for the Reds. At 21 years old, Eric Davis made his first appearance as a centerfielder for the Cincinnati Reds.

With comparisons to Willie Mays, Davis showed extraordinary speed and a rare complimenting power at the plate. He broke out in 1986 with 27 home runs and 80 stolen bases, one of only two players in MLB history in the 20/80 Club.

Davis was one of the MLB’s most exciting superstars through his first six seasons, making 2 All-Star teams, 3 Golden Gloves, and a World Series ring in 1990. Davis struggled through a series of injuries and in 1994 retired from the game. In 1996, Davis made a comeback to the MLB and showed signs of his previous self, earning NL Comeback Player of the Year honors.
