So How Did Storm Davis the Baseball Player Get his nickname STORM?


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

"...Davis was the winning pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles in Game Four of the 1983 World Series versus the Philadelphia Phillies.

Another story traces his nickname to similarities with Jim Palmer, the Orioles' Cy Young Award-winning pitcher; he was a "Cy clone" or "Storm."[5]..."
