Mike Trout is celebrating his 26th birthday, and to wish him well and say happy birthday as friends do, his teammates got a little messy in the locker room.
Actually, a lot messy. They should probably apologize to the janitorial staff after this little display of affection.
Davis, once a member of Baseball America’s All-Rookie Team and a record-setter for the Mets, is now attempting to make it back to the majors as a pitcher.
Before this season, Davis signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers and made his pitching debut with the AZL Dodgers on Monday.
In his debut, Davis struck out the side in a game against the AZL Padres. It’s only one inning in one start, so there’s only so much that can be taken away from such a small sample size, but it’s enough early evidence that Davis’ plans might not be a complete fool’s errand.
Davis was a pitcher in college as well, serving as a reliever at Arizona State, and in 2015 he pitched twice for the A’s — one inning each time out, allowing no runs in either appearance.
Whether this attempt at a second major league career will pan out for Davis is a complete guess right now, but one thing is for sure: this is taking the concept of “position player pitching” to the next level.
All we saw was Air Bud catch a ball in his mouth and get the final out, and apparently that was enough to earn MVP. We didn’t see him at bat, although thanks to the scoreboard, we can assume he didn’t help much there. All we’re left with is imagining what else he did at first base to Cheap NFL Jerseys earn that honor, and maybe that’s for the best. Part of me believes this ending was all a Cheap NFL Jerseys Good Quality dream sequence in Air Bud’s head.
