Did you know that Chili Davis was the first player in Major League history to appear in the show who was born on the island of Jamaica ? Three Jamaican ballplayers have joined Chili Bowl; Devon White , Rolando Roomes , and Justin Masterson , and all three were born in Kingston.

Did you know Davis' three-hundred fifty career home runs is the seventh-highest for switch-hitters, behind Mickey Mantle (536), Eddie Murray (504), Chipper Jones (468), Mark Teixeira (394), Carlos Beltran (392), and Lance Berkman (366)?

How did Chili Davis get his moniker "Chili / Chili Bowl"? In The Sporting News (07/05/1982, "Rookies", Page 14) he shared the following story, "My dad gave me a haircut...and it wasn’t a very good one. When I went out of the house, my friends got on my case and said it looked like someone put a chili bowl over my head and cut around it."
