First Pitch: Henry Davis Trip-Trip-Triple

Henry Davis was a few steps away from getting an inside-the-park home run in his first at-bat in High-A.

The silver lining here is that the powerful swing and some speed from a catcher are both on display. Davis made his debut last night with Greensboro as the DH, going 1-for-3 with the triple and a walk.
