Biographical Information[edit]

Mike Davis was signed as a 3rd round pick of the 1977 amateur draft by the Oakland A's and scout Phil Pote.

He is the brother of Mark Davis, and a cousin of NFL defensive back Dave Grayson.

He drew a walk to become the tying run just prior to Kirk Gibson's famous walk-off home run in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. He had hit only .196 with 2 homers in 108 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1988, but in the World Series, even though he went 1 for 7, his only hit was a home run, he drew four walks, stole 2 bases and scored 3 runs.

Davis was hitting coach of the Mobile BayBears in 2002-2003, Lake Elsinore Storm in 2004 and Mobile again in 2005 [1]. He was a coach for the Everett AquaSox in 2014 and Clinton LumberKings in 2015.
