Eric Davis

Class of 2005

Davis won games with dashing, leaping improvisation afield that was as sensationally unique as his thunder-and-lightening offense.

- Authors Lonnie Wheeler and John Baskin

A true five-tool player, Eric Davis could hit for power, hit for average, play exceptional defense, throw runners out with a strong arm, and he could run. His speed allowed him to steal 80 bases in 1986, coming within one stolen base of tying Bob Bescher's single-season team record. The next season, Davis hit 37 homers and stole 50 bases and became the first Red to join the 30/30 club-membership granted to those players who hit 30 or more home runs and steal 30 or more bases in a single season. His speed was also an asset on defense, with Davis able to get to many balls other fielders couldn't, including robbing opposing hitters of home runs with many spectacular grabs over the outfield wall at Riverfront Stadium. Davis was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2005.
