#33T Mike Davis

I guess Davis got contact lenses in between the time his regular issue 1988 photo and this photo were taken. He's wearing glasses in the former.

IMPACT FACTOR 5/10: Davis did very little with the Dodgers in the 1988 and 1989 regular seasons. He did, however, draw one of the most unlikely walks in the history of baseball, right ahead of the one of the most unlikely home runs ever hit. He gets big points for that, a moment in the sun more memorable than the achievements of many, many players with more talent.

In case you're some kind of baseball newbie and don't know what I'm talking about, click here and here.

He even had the nads to steal 2nd with 2 out to get the tying run in scoring position, although Canseco could have probably thrown Gibson out on a ground ball to left.
