Oakland Athletics slugger Khris Davis made a gesture that put him in the news for all of the right reasons after Monday’s game. He did more of the same on Tuesday.
Prior to Monday’s game, Davis visited with Anthony Slocumb, a kid in the Make-a-Wish foundation. Only, instead of signing an autograph for Slocumb, Davis had Slocumb sign his jersey, the same one he wore in the game and hit a home run with.
Then on Tuesday, he gave that same jersey to the boy who signed it, and he’s auctioning off another signed jersey for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Today, @Athletics Khris Davis gave his jersey worn from home run #37 (hit last night) to the boy who signed it. He's also auctioning another signed jersey this weekend to benefit @Makeawish. Details to come! #RootedInOakland #Athletics pic.twitter.com/J6PV1GJ2ut

On the brink of topping 40 home runs for a third-straight year, Davis is one of the game’s best sluggers. But more importantly, he’s clearly got a good head and heart, as well.
There’s nothing but good from Davis and his team here. Hopefully the jersey raises more at auction than anyone anticipates.
