Davis Realizes MLB Dream With Home Team, Hometown Fans

A former Longview Lobo took the major leagues by storm and Sunday it was Chris Davis Day at the Rangers' Ballpark in Arlington.

"It's kind of crazy, seems like I just got here a couple of months ago," Chris told KLTV. "I definitely think it's an honor to have that tag. I think it's a lot of fun."

After a late June call up, Davis stayed in the starting lineup. A big adjustment yes, but a dream come true for him.

"Absolutely," Chris said. "I think it took a while for my feet to kind of hit the ground again, but it seemed like the first couple of weeks flew by. It's kind of slowed down and I really realized everything that's happened in the last few months and been very thankful."

"I've had a little more experience. I've been able to go through some game situations that I've thought about and kind of dreamed about. I've kind of learned what I need to do and kind of learned my own little routine that has helped me to stay up here and keep my head focused."

Chris Davis Day gives Chris the chance to celebrate Longview and his own good luck of being drafted by his favorite team.

"I think it's awesome," he said. "I wish everybody could experience that. It's so hard with the draft to be able to be selected by your hometown team and I think for me it was always a neat thing but I didn't realize how cool it was going to be until I got up here. Seeing those people that I've grown up with, that I've known all my life in the stands cheering for me, it's a good feeling."
