Floods' cleanup hitter Ryan Davis had 10 RBI in our win over the Mariners this past week. I
think that's probably a SMSBL Sunday league record. It's definitely a
Floods team record. Here's how he did it.
Ryan came up in the
top of the first with one down and two men on. He hit a monster shot that
went over the redwood trees behind the right field fence at McAuliffe #1 and
landed in the street for a 3-run home run. He came up in the second with
a man on third and one down and hit a sacrifice fly to right. He then
came up in the third with two down and men on second and third and singled to
left to drive in two more.
After three innings he
had six RBI. But he wasn't done. He came up in the sixth with two
down and the bases loaded and hit another shot over the right field fence for a
grand slam. For the game Ryan was 3 for 4 with two home runs and a sac
fly and 10 RBIs. It was pretty amazing.
The Floods were formed 10 years ago around my son, Joe Caffrey, and my son-in-law, Rob
Dyer. Most of the team members are friends and coworkers of Joe and Rob,
plus a cousin or two.
Ryan played for a
while in the Giants organization when he was a young man. That was about
20 years ago but he still has prodigious power. Editor’s note: Below are Ryan’s Giant’s stats.
