Jace Davis shines in 2024 baseball season for the Warriors

Jace Davis shines in 2024 baseball season for the Warriors
Karmen Davis

Woodhaven junior Jace Davis has been nothing short of spectacular to this point in the 2024 baseball season. Those who watched the team last year expected nothing less, as he was also one of the star players on the team as a sophomore. 

Davis has been stellar both at the plate and defensively. He currently holds a .326 batting average with the second most hits on the team with 29. He has 2 clutch home runs on the year, both of which being grand slams. Defensively he has been lockdown at shortstop for the Warriors, as he has 54 assists and 35 putouts, while also turning 7 double plays so far on the year. He also has been very reliable for the team all season long as he has started in each of the 27 games this year. 

Davis was a big part of the state championship run that the Warriors had last year. He firmly believes that the big games and pressure situations that he competed in are helping him this season.

He stated, “The main difference for me this year is I’ve felt a lot less pressure in big games. I have a lot of trust in my preparation, and having won all those big games last year, I know what it takes to be successful against the best competition that we play.” 

The experiences that he had last year should continue over to this year as the Warriors enter the playoffs. Viewers should keep an eye out for Davis as the season comes to a close and games start to get more important.

Davis has had several unforgettable moments so far in his junior year. One that he will likely never forget is his walk-off grand slam against Wyandotte to force a mercy rule. This game was streamed by The Prep and was a special moment that he will be able to watch back forever.

He explained, “It was an unreal feeling watching that ball go over the fence as I rounded first. I didn’t really understand that we were 4 runs away from the mercy rule, so I didn’t really know the game was over, but it being a walk-off just made everything feel a whole lot more special. Also getting an interview by The Prep right after the game, it was just a special sequence that I will never forget.”

Davis has been an extraordinary player in his high school career for Woodhaven’s baseball program. It will be cool to see how far he can lead his team this year following last year’s trip to the state championship, and ultimately if he looks to further his baseball career following high school and play at the next level, as he definitely has the skillset to do so.
