FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1980'S
#131 TRENCH DAVIS
ATLANTA BRAVES 1987
AND ON THE LIST WITHIN A LIST...
COMING IN AT #4 ON THE
BRAVES OF THE 80's
MOONLIGHT GRAHAM AWARD CANDIDATE LIST
Trench finished his brief career with a .121 batting average. He was hitless during his three trips to the plate as a Brave, though he did reach base on June 30, 1987 on an error by Chris Spier.
It is pretty cool to me that Trench played several minor league seasons in Mexico and Hawaii.
I think it's even cooler that his name is so close to fictional minor league home run hitter Crash Davis from the movie Bull Durham. Of course, it's confusing, because there was a real major leaguer named Crash Davis as well.
So just to clarify:
Trench Davis (real)
Career minor league home runs: 15
Career major league home runs: 0
Crash Davis: (fictional)
Career minor league home runs: 247
Career major league home runs: Unknown
Crash Davis: (real)
Career minor league home runs: 51
Career major league home runs: 2
Glad I got all that straight now.
