Monday afternoon, just a few days after being suspended by Major League Baseball for amphetamines, Davis found himself in a tricky situation. The O’s slugger reportedly was one of multiple people who helped lift a heavy pickup truck to unpin an accident victim trapped underneath.

Mike Soukup, one of the individuals who joined Davis in the effort, relived the chance encounter when speaking to MASNSports.com about the incident.

“When I turned to look at the first man, I instantly noticed a very strong resemblance to Chris Davis,” Soukup told the website. “He didn’t have any Orioles gear on except his tennis shoes were black and orange. We glanced at each other with a ‘Good job’ look and I said, ‘Chris?’ He said, ‘Yeah?’ ‘Chris Davis?’ ‘Yeah?’ I said, ‘One hell of a way to meet Chris Davis.'”

Davis has 26 home runs to go along with 72 RBIs this season, but he’s hitting a major league-worst .196 with 173 strikeouts through 127 games. Despite his struggles at the plate, the 2013 All-Star certainly found something to hang his hat on with his heroic endeavor that afternoon.
