Willie Davis played most of his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he did an excellent job at the top of the order and defensively in Centerfield.
Davis first made the Dodgers roster in 1960, eventually replacing the legendary Duke Snider in Centerfield. He was one of the fastest baseball players, a skill he used to chase down balls in the outfield and befuddle opponents on the base paths. Early in his career, Davis helped the Dodgers win two World Series Championships (1963 & 1965), and in the early 70s, he won three Gold Gloves. He was also a two-time leader in Triples and went to two All-Star Games for L.A...
Davis had 11 20-plus Stolen Base years for Los Angeles, with a total of 335 for the team, while also blasting 154 Home Runs. The Dodgers traded Davis for Mike Marshall after the 1973 Season, and as the Dodgers charged into the rest of the decade, the contributions of Davis to Los Angeles were sadly forgotten.
In a strange turn of events, when Davis was Hall of Fame eligible in 1985, he was not even included on the ballot, making him the biggest ballot omission in all of baseball.
