1987 HEADLINE: Eric Davis Joins 30/30 Club!
On this day in 1987, Eric Davis collected his 30th home run of the baseball season gaining him entrance into the ’30/30 Club’.
The landmark homer that put him into this elite status came in just his third major league season. And with his raw ability at the plate and uncanny speed on the base paths, Davis had many fans thinking ’40/40′ was in his near future.
Officially, Davis completed the 1987 baseball season with 37 home runs and 50 steals. 1987 was the most well-rounded offensive season of his career, and he would never reach the ’30/30′ mark again.
Happy Anniversary Mr. Davis!!!
