Baseball Player
    His name is similar to that of comedian Tom Davis.
    He became a journeyman player after he left the Dodgers.
    He was struck out in his very first major league at bat.
    He played on two separate stints with the Athletics and the Cubs.
    He said about his moves to different teams, 'I'm very bitter, bitter as hell. Why do I keep getting released? Don't ask me no reason why.'
    He felt lazy between at-bats as he went to clubhouse often during his time in Baltimore.
    He played for the Dodgers team that was swept by the Orioles in the 1966 World Series.
    He played basketball with future NBA legend Lenny Wilkens as teammates in high school.
    He broke Roy Campanella's Dodger record in RBIs with 153 as he led the NL in RBIs during the 1962 season.
    He played for the Dodgers team that swept the New York Yankees in the 1963 World Series.
    He was the first Oriole to win the Outstanding Designated Hitter Award.
    He held the Dodger right-handed batting average record at .346 for 35 years until Mike Piazza broke it at .362 during the 1997 season.
    Sandy Koufax said about him, 'For two years (1962 and 1963), Tommy was the best hitter in baseball. He just didn't get the recognition. He was part of a team that had a lot of good parts to it.'
