"When Eric Davis arrived on the scene in Cincinnati in 1984, he came with the label of unlimited potential. As so often occurred in that era, that label frequently came with the moniker of 'the next Willie Mays ' since the Hall of Famer was the standard bearer for players who could do it all on the baseball field. And Davis, a legitimate five-tool player if there ever was one, could indeed do it all ." - Author Joel Luckhaupt in 100 Things Reds Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die (Triumph Books, 04/01/2013, '32. Eric Davis', Page 141)

Eric Davis hit 37 home runs and stole 50 bases in 1987, becoming the first Cincinnati Reds player to join the 30 / 30 Club . He was only the fifth National League player (joining Willie Mays , Hank Aaron , Bobby Bonds and Dale Murphy ) to accomplish the feat, and entered the 30 home run / 30 stolen base club while playing in only 129 games that year - the fewest number of games played in baseball history by any of the elite members (from either league).

Eric Davis not only joined the 30 / 30 Club , but he was also the first player in Major League history with at least thirty home runs and fifty stolen bases, a feat matched once since, by Barry Bonds in 1990.

Did you know that exactly two players in baseball history have put together a season where they displayed blistering speed (80 steals) and real power (25 home runs)? Both of those players, Eric Davis and Rickey Henderson , did it the same year (1986), with Davis hitting 27 home runs and stealing 80 bases, and Henderson hitting 28 home runs and stealing 87 bases.

Did you know that Eric Davis, on June 2, 1989 , collected a double in the second inning, a single in the third, a home run in the fourth, and a triple in the seventh, completing the cycle , it was the first cycle by a Cincinnati Reds player since 1959? Do you know what Hall of Famer did it that year? [ Answer ]

Eric Davis. Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. Class of 2005 ( Link ).

A true five-tool player, Eric Davis could hit for power, hit for average, play exceptional defense, throw runners out with a strong arm, and he could run. His speed allowed him to steal 80 bases in 1986, coming within one stolen base of tying Bob Bescher's single-season team record. The next season, Davis hit 37 homers and stole 50 bases and became the first Red to join the 30 / 30 club -membership granted to those players who hit 30 or more home runs and steal 30 or more bases in a single season. His speed was also an asset on defense, with Davis able to get to many balls other fielders couldn't, including robbing opposing hitters of home runs with many spectacular grabs over the outfield wall at Riverfront Stadium. Davis was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2005.
