Bill Davis was a hulking 6'7" first baseman, born in Graceville, Minnesota.  He graduated from Richfield High School and the University of Minnesota before signing with the Cleveland Indians in 1964.  He played in 33 games for the Tribe from 1965-1966 and got into 31 more for the 1969 San Diego Padres, and is a fantastic addition to my collection of Minnesota-born players.  (A fun note, the request traveled all of 2.1 miles from my house to his, according to Google maps.)
