Beyond the Game: Brewers left-fielder Khris Davis

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Khris Davis certainly didn't figure to be on the Brewers Opening Day roster when Spring Training started. But Davis, a seventh-round draft choice in 2009 forced his way onto the roster by crashing a team-leading six homers in Cactus League action.

And there he was on Opening Day, being introduced to the Miller Park crowd with the rest of his Major League teammates.

In his role as Brewers Manager, Ron Roenicke has to make some tough decisions. He says sharing the good news with Davis was a pleasure.

The 25-year-old native of Arizona was drafted out of high school by the Washington Nationals, but he chose to play on the collegiate level at Cal State Fullerton.

After a couple of pinch hitting opportunities, Davis made his first start in left field on Friday night, April 5th against Arizona -- when Ryan Braun had to be scratched with neck spasms. Coincidentally, it was Kyle Lohse's debut as a Milwaukee pitcher.

Davis doesn't know what the future will hold, but says for now, life couldn't get much better.
