"Country" Davidson was a reserve outfielder on the 1987 Twins World Series championship team.  He established himself as a top prospect in the barren Twins minor league system of the mid-to-late eighties with a huge year at Double A Orlando in 1985 (.302, 25 HR, 106 RBI).  Those numbers never translated to big league success, as he spent three years with the Twins and a couple more with the Houston Astros as a weak-hitting, defensive-replacement type.
