Former MLB All-Star Sets Record No Player Wants Their Name Next To
Baltimore Orioles 1B/OF Chris Davis is in the 4th year of a 7 year, $161 million contract.
An All-Star in 2013, the former 2-time MLB home run leader never thought he'd make baseball history with a dubious record.
Last night, Davis lined out to left in the 5th inning of the Orioles 12-4 win over the A's.
As boos rained down from the crowd at Camden Yards, he had just put his name in the record books.
Davis went 47 consecutive at bats without a hit, the longest streak by a position player in league history.
With an average salary of $23 million a year, Baltimore is hoping Davis can come out of his 0-47 funk that dates back to September of 2018.
