CHICAGO, Ill.—Baltimore Oriole’s First Baseman Chris “Crush” Davis is turning out to be Charm City’s man of steel. He’s big. He’s strong. And he’s setting records. As of this writing, Davis delivered 32 home runs before the All-Star Break, breaking Brady Anderson’s record set in 1996. Davis leads the league in home runs and has 83 RBI’s, second only to Miguel Cabrera (as of this writing). He is the first player in major league history to have at least 30 homers and 25 doubles before July.
Davis happily admits he’s in a good place now, but he acknowledges if God asked him to step away from baseball, he would lay down his bat and walk away.
