The Pirate minor leaguer of the same name occasionally brings to mind "Bad Henry" Davis. A linebacker, he and Frenchy Fuqua were acquired in a trade with the Giants for QB Dick Shiner. Davis played four years with the Steelers, made the Pro Bowl in 1972, and left football after the 1973 season, at 31.

My question: Bad Henry was drafted out of Grambling in 1968, when he was 25 years old. Does anyone know if he was in the military or some such before football?

Those were the Vietnam years and perhaps he was drafted into the Army or he enlisted.  If that is so, it is possible that he was that old.

It's A Great Day for Bucco Baseball
