"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)

The League Championship Series determines who wins the league pennant and advances to the World Series. Prior to 1969, the pennant winner was determined by the best won-loss record at the end of the regular season. A structured playoff series began in 1969, when both the National and American League reorganized into two divisions each, East and West. The two division winners within each league played each other in a best-of-five series to determine who would advanced to the World Series . In 1985, the format of the League Championship Series changed to best-of-seven.
