Chris Davis is Strong, Too

by R.J. Anderson

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Ben Lindbergh showed us the strength of Matt Holliday. Some 17 hours later Chris Davis hit a home run that begged for an examination of his strength. Take a look at this baby. At first glance it might appear as nothing more than your standard opposite-field blast. Look a closer at the location of the pitch at the point of contact:

It's tough to see but that pitch is off the plate, yet Davis gets enough of it to drive it out. The takeaway: Davis is a very strong human being.
