There he is – with that famous batting stance of his…

ERIC DAVIS 3

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!!
