Today, cheap Baltimore Orioles tickets can be found in abundance, and many fans are taking advantage of the team’s rich history.
Davis attended Longview High School in Texas where he graduated in 2004. He used to play shortstop on the varsity baseball team of the school. Davis did not sign for the New York Yankees in 2004 when he was chosen as the third last pick of the MLB Draft in 2004. He also did not sign for the Los Angeles of Anaheim in spite of their invitation in the 2005 MBL draft. He finally signed for the Texas Rangers during the 5th round of the 2006 MBL draft.
Davis made his debut on June 26, 2008 against the Houston Astros and he got his first hit in his debut at bat. His first Major League start at base was on the June 27, 2008. During that game, he hit his very first Major League home. The next day, Davis homered yet again and hence became the first Texas Ranger who ever homered during his first couple of Major League starts.
After a successful stay with the Texas Rangers, Davis was traded to the Baltimore Orioles for the pitcher Tommy Hunter on 30th of July, 2011.
In spite of him going eight hitless at eight bats in the 17-inning 9-6 victory over Boston Red Sox on May 6, 2012, Davis became the winner pitcher. This achievement was the first of its kind since July 4, 1905 when Rube Waddell made the same achievement. He became the designated hitter for the Orioles until he was forced into being the relief pitcher in the 16th inning when the manager (Buck Showalter) depleted Orioles’ bullpen. He hit his first career grand slam as a pitcher on 31st July, 2012 against the New York Yankees in a 11-5 despite the fact they faced a 5-run deficit before. He had his first three homer game against the Toronto Blue Jays on 24th of August 2012.
April 5, 2013 is the day when Davis set a new record in the Major Leagues earning 16 RBI within the first four games of the season. He is the fourth Major League player who hit a home run during the first games of the season. The others are Mark McGwire, Nelson Cruz, and Willie Mays.
