On January 17, 1977, the Kansas City Royals release 18-year veteran Tommy Davis, ending his career. In 1962, Davis led the National League in hitting with a .346 mark, and in RBIs with 153. In 1963, Davis again won the batting crown, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers capture the World Series. Two years later, Davis fractured his ankle, curtailing his production for the rest of his career.
