Eric Davis 1988 Donruss All-Star
There he is – with that famous batting stance of his…
It’s just too bad that the photograph used on this baseball card is so zoomed in because the photographer captured a perfect picture of one of the most famous batting stances of the 1980′s.
As you can see, Davis kept his hands at waist-level. And when he began his swing, he would rear back with great speed and then pounce forward throwing his hips and shoulders into the swing.
It was a batting stance often emulated by me and my buddies in the late 1980′s while playing various versions of baseball in the neighborhood.
And yes, I can see those sweet wristbands too!!
