Harry Albert Davis (May 7, 1908 - March 3, 1997), nicknamed "Stinky," was the Detroit Tigers first baseman who lost his job when Hank Greenberg joined the Tigers in 1933. Stinky Davis was the Tigers' starting first baseman in 1932. That year, he hit .269 with a .339 on base percentage, 92 runs scored, 159 hits, and 74 RBIs. Despite decent numbers, Davis lost his starting job to Greenberg in 1933. He managed to play 66 games at first base in 1933 before Greenberg took over. After 1933, Davis dropped out of the major leagues for four years before being given a second chance by the St. Louis Browns in 1937. He played in 120 games for the Browns and hit .276 with a .374 on base percentage. Stinky Davis was born and died in Shreveport, Louisiana.
