The Orioles dugout players gave Davis an enthusiastic ovation after the stroke, as he smiled to first base, and the Boston crowd also gave him a warm welcome. To celebrate this moment, he even asked to keep baseball.
Davis had surpassed the record held by the former Los Angeles Dodgers utility, Eugenio Velez (46 AB) established in 2011.
For the moment, Davis is still not looking good, because he must now try to play more often with the racket, especially if he wants to recover the support of frustrated supporters of the Orioles. He is certainly on his way though. Davis led all the batters in the match, scoring 3 to 5, including two in doubles, scoring four points. The game of escape has raised its average for the season to 0.079.

The following years were difficult for Davis and the O. The team still owes him about $ 92 million in guaranteed money because of the extension of the contract he signed in the offseason of 2015. This contract will be paid in deferred payments until the 2037 season.
Last year, Davis also set an unflattering record after posting a batting average of 128 percent over 128 games and 522 appearances at the plate. This batting average is the worst for a skilled hitter in the history of the Major League Baseball since the league adopted the current schedule of 162 games.
