Henry Davis, Pittsburgh Pirates

In his fourth game as a big leaguer, Henry Davis hit his first home run for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the Miami Marlins on Thursday night.

Leading off the top of the eighth inning, Davis belted a 1-1 slider from Marlins reliever Andrew Nardi to put the Pirates ahead 3-1.

Davis’ blast measured 407-feet and left the bat at 100.5 mph.

One of the main attractions of Davis as a draft prospect in 2021 was his power, leading the Pirates to taking the University of Louisville product first overall in the draft that year.

In 118 minor league games in his career, Davis registered 24 home runs while climbing up the ranks of the Pirates’ system.

Now, he has N0. 1 as a major leaguer.
