Khris Davis is well known for his ability to absolutely crush baseballs, as he hit a whopping 48 homeruns to lead the entire league, but what has caught the eyes of baseball analysts and fans alike is the fact that for the fourth year in a row his batting average is exactly .247. Davis, who has been in the league for six years, also hit a very close .244 the year prior the start of the streak. While batting .247 is not considerably good, it is, however, a very impressive feat to do it for four years in a row. It is a record (sort of) that no one will ever most likely be able to accomplish due to the fact that throughout just one season of baseball, Davis had around 500 at bats, requiring him to finish with just around 140 hits or so. Davis has been a big factor the amazing success of the Oakland A’s, who turned their season all the way around and managed to get their way into the final Wild Card spot in the American League. The A’s went from being 35-36 on June 16th to going on an amazing stretch, finishing 97-65.

As a 5-10, 195-pound guy he has destroyed 48 bombs to be the first Oakland A to lead the league in 22 years since Mark McGwire hit 52 in 1996. He has also consistently hit 40 plus homers for three years in a row. If the A’s had been able to beat the New York Yankees in the one game Wild Card, you could’ve expected to see Davis hit many postseason bombs and quite possibly hit above .247. As for next year, it will be a fun thing to keep in the back of your mind to see if he can manage to hit .247 for a fifth year as well as keep up his steady stream of homeruns in which he leads the MLB in since 2016 with 133!
