Chris Davis has had a rough couple of seasons on the field. Off it? He remains one of the biggest stars in the game.
The Orioles slugger and his wife, Jill, donated a whopping $3 million to the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Per a release, it was the largest donation ever received by the hospital from a Baltimore athlete.
The gift is earmarked for hospital expansion, in an effort to provide top-notch care for the most seriously ill children.
“This is a cause that is close to our hearts,” Davis says in the press release. “Everyone at the hospital has inspired our family – from the patients and families who show such courage in the face of overwhelming challenges, to the medical professionals and caregivers who dedicate their careers to saving and improving lives.”
Davis famously signed the largest contract in franchise history, so the money is certainly within his budget, but this is still a remarkable gift to give to the city.
The Davis family has been involved with the children’s hospital for years, and plenty of local athletes have served important roles within the community, but this is going a step above for a player dealing with major struggles on the diamond.
With acts of generosity like this one, it’s no surprise Davis has been named the Orioles’ nominee for Major League Baseball’s Roberto Clemente award, given to individual players based on their character and community involvement, for three straight seasons. Carlos Carrasco of the Indians won the 2019 Roberte Clemente award last month.
