#430 Glenn Davis



Why this card is awesome: Because if you look carefully, you can see a blurry New York Met in the dugout balancing a cantaloupe on his head.

In case you didn't know, Glenn Davis was adopted by the parents of Storm Davis, and the two grew up as brothers.

Cool stat: Davis was hurt badly by playing in the Astrodome. His real career stats are 190 HR and 603 RBI, .259/.332/.467. His neutralized stats, though, are 205 RBI, 664 RBI, .273/.349/.493. He would have had 3 seasons of 100+ RBI and 5 seasons with 24 or more homers. Against his brother, Davis reached base in both of his career PAs, including once by HBP!

Glenn was drafted by Gerry Hunsicker, long-time GM of the Astros and now an executive with Tampa Bay.

Any particular reason why said Met in the background is wearing a Star Wars battle helmet under that cantaloupe?
