"My dad would tell me he used to play at Jackie Robinson Field as a kid and how special that is," Davis said. "I still hear stories that [Brewers hitting coach] Johnny Narron tells me about Branch Rickey and an uncle that Johnny had, just what they went through as a team."
Davis followed in his father's footsteps. Rodney Davis played professionally as an outfielder in the Minor Leagues with the Dodgers and later scouted for the D-backs. Khris Davis attended Cal-State Fullerton, not far from UCLA, where Robinson began to craft his legacy by becoming the first Bruin to win varsity letters in four sports.
