Henry Davis is Giving Back to His Community the Way He Knows Best

Published

With everything going down the tubes in recent labor negotiations between MLB and  MLBPA, there needs to be some sort of positivity. Equipment is always expensive no matter what sport you’re in, but baseball can have parents go deep into their pockets for much-needed equipment.

The Pirates 2021 first overall selection, Henry Davis, decided to give back to his community in the way he knows best and donate cleats to Fox Lane, high school. Fox Lane is, of course, Davis’ high school in Bedford, New York.

At Fox Lane, Davis put together a very good high school career. During his junior year in 2017, Davis hit .429, and in his senior year, he hit .441. Davis earned Perfect Game New York’s Player of the Year and All-State honors.

So if you’re feeling down in the dumps, remember there is some good going on, and Mr. Davis has shown us that very thing. Not a bad way to spend some of that $6.5 million signing bonus if you ask me.
