It has been 10 years to the day since the real life Crash Davis passed away in 2001 at the age of 82. Davis has his character played by Kevin Costner in the movie Bull Durham which is still one of if not the best baseball movie ever made. This great piece by Jeremy Markovich of WCNC in Charlotte, a must follow on twitter @deftlyinane looks at the life of Crash Davis, his trek through the minor leagues, and the fame he found when Bull Durham hit the big screen. It’s an awesome read.
