Davis is considered by many experts to be one of the most dangerous hitters in baseball and the best fastball hitter, even on top of MLB stars like Mike Trout, Miguel Cabrera and Bryce Harper.

Born in Lakewood, California, Khris is the son of former minor league player, Rodney Davis, who is currently a baseball scout. His mother, Sonia Alarcon, was born in Sinaloa, Mexico, then moved to Ensenada, Baja California, to later pursuit the "American dream" in the United States.

Khris Adrian Davis Alarcon is a 29 years old outfielder who in 2016 hit 42 home runs and drove in 102 RBI's for the Oakland Athletics. Only Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco, Jason Giambi, Reggie Jackson and now Davis have hit 40 home runs or more in a single season with the A's.

A few months ago, the US National Team invited him to play with them in the World Baseball Classic, but the Mexican-American outfielder declined in order to represent the colors of his mother's team instead.

When he was a kid, David used to visit Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas very often, where he has family.
