Ron Davis Death And Obituary – Brutal hell I’m utterly stunned. I just watched @RonDavis on Starstruck, and he passed away. Ron’s family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.
Ronald Gene Davis, who played in Major League Baseball for 11 years between 1978 and 1988, was born on August 6, 1955. In the American League, Davis played for the New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins, while in the National League, he was a member of the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Francisco Giants. He was chosen for the American League All-Star team in 1981.
Texas’s Houston is where Davis was born. He is a 6-foot-4 right-handed pitcher who is quite good. He played in 481 games from the bench throughout his career, making 130 saves.
In 1978, he was moved to the New York Yankees of the minor league after being initially selected by the Chicago Cubs. He was used as the team’s finisher during his stay in New York by All-Star backup pitcher Rich Gossage following an injury. He was also among the first Yankees pitchers to only be utilized as a mid-inning “ready” pitcher. Davis and Gorsec were a productive tandem for two seasons in 1980 and 1981. Many teams still employ them today.
With eight strikeouts in a game, Davis still owns the Yankee’s record for the most consecutive strikeouts. This record was set against the California Angels on May 4, 1981. He now holds the franchise record for the most strikeouts by a bullpen in a single game thanks to the accomplishment. On April 22, 2022, Michael King set the record by fanning eight out of nine batters.
At the Hyatt Regency Kansas City, Davis waited tables while the Major League Baseball players were on strike in 1981. On July 18, two hotel walkways gave way, leaving 114 people dead. Davis reportedly took part in the ensuing rescue operations, according to media accounts.
