Biographical Information[edit]

David "Davey" Crockett played for the Detroit Tigers in their first season of existence. The regular first baseman on the team was Pop Dillon; Davey played first 28 times between July 11 and August 12, hitting .284/.336/.343. Crockett was presumably named after the famous frontiersman Davy Crockett, who, while born in Tennessee, spent time in Virginia because his father was from there. As for this Davey, he played at least 15 seasons in the minors, beginning his career in his home town of Roanoke. Among other stops, he played five seasons with the team in Davenport, IA (the team was known by several names during his five seasons there). He also managed for one season, 1914. Through 2019, the only other major leaguer with the same last name has been Kyle Crockett, also from Virginia.
