|Career highlights and awards|
George Willis "Kiddo" Davis (February 12, 1902 – March 4, 1983) was a Major League Baseball outfielder. He played all or part of eight seasons in the majors, 1926 and 1932-1938. He played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, New York Giants, New York Yankees, and Philadelphia Phillies.
Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Davis acquired the nickname “Kiddo” because he typically played baseball with children who were a few years older than he was. Davis attended Bridgeport High School before beginning his professional baseball career.
In an eight-year major league career, Davis batted .282 (515-1824) with 281 runs scored, 19 home runs and 171 RBI. His on-base percentage was .336 and slugging percentage was .393. He compiled a .980 fielding percentage at all three outfield positions. In nine World Series games (1933 and 1936), he hit .381 (8-21).
Davis died in Bridgeport in 1983.
