February 6

1928 Zeenut #90 - Ike Davis

On this day in 1928 the White Sox sent Ike Davis to the Portland Beavers to complete a November 1927 deal that landed the South Siders infielder Bill Cissell.

Ike first played with the White Sox in 1924 and he became their everyday shortstop in 1925, but Ike would never again reach the majors after that season. Bill Hunnefield took over regular duties at shortstop for the 1926 and 1927 seasons, before moving to second base as a primary position when the Sox traded Ike Davis, Ike Boone and Bert Cole for their new everyday shortstop Bill Cissell.
