Danville Dairy Daddies Announce Corey “Buc” Davis as hitting coach

Former Lee University teammates reunite to lead the Dairy Daddies

DANVILLE, VA - The Danville Dairy Daddies now have their first ever hitting coach for their

inaugural season. Corey “Buc” Davis joins manager Alex Moore, reuniting after playing together

at Lee University in 2012 and 2013.

“We are thrilled to have Corey joining us for our inaugural season,” said Assistant General

Manager of Baseball Operations, Jacob Lemanowicz. “A positive clubhouse culture begins in

the Coaches’ Office and extends outward. Alex and Corey’s established relationship will help to

ensure everyone is on the same page on day one.”

Davis grew up in the small, south-central Georgia town of Douglas where he was a 2009

Rawlings Preseason All-American All-Southeast Region 2nd team, along with a top 500 ranking

for the overall class of 2009. Davis was also a participant of the Power Showcase Home Run

Derby that featured Bryce Harper, Christian Walker, Randal Grichuk, and Dante Bichette in

which Davis crushed 3 of his double-digit home runs over 450 feet at Tropicana Field in Tampa.

A strong spring led Buc to being drafted in the 15th round, 442nd overall to the Washington

Nationals. Choosing to forgo pro ball out of high school, Davis attended perennial Juco

powerhouse Walters State CC from 2010-2011 where was named 1st Team All-TCCAA

Conference after hitting .397 with 7 HR, 37 RBI, and was 26 out of 27 in stolen bases, which is

even more impressive at 6’3'', 250lbs. After two years at Walters State, Buc moved to southern

Tennessee to attend Lee University where he was named 1st team NAIA All-American in 2012

and was named to the NAIA Preseason All-America list for 2013, playing in the NAIA World

Series both years. Over 4 years, Buc hit over .300 with 35+ home runs and 40+ stolen bases to

go along with a player record of 190-46 over a 4-year career while playing on a team ranked in

the top 5 nationally each year.

“He brings a wealth of knowledge when it comes to raw power and hitting methods to go along

with first base and outfield experience,” said Dairy Daddies skipper, Alex Moore.

Come see both Alex and Corey in the dugout on Opening Night (Friday, May 24th, 2024.)
