Ben Davis

A recent addition to the Mickey Vernon Delaware County Sports History Museum welcomes you to the addition’s new home in the Rocky Run YMCA in Media, PA. The addition is a Sports Rarity of the Month exhibit, on display in a case adjacent to the gym. The Sports Rarity for August will be Phillies Broadcast Team’s Ben Davis’ game-worn jersey and game-used catcher’s mitt from Ben’s 2004 season with the American League Seattle Mariners. The jersey and mitt will be on display for Y members during the entire month of July. Davis was born in Chester,Pa., grew up in nearby Aston and earned acclaim as an accomplished catcher while at Malvern Prep. In 1995, he was selected second overall in the Major League Baseball Draft. Ben played seven years at the major league level, including stints with the San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners and Chicago White Sox. Items from the Museum’s collection, including the monthly Rarity, can be viewed at If you are one of the more than 19,000 members of the Rocky Run Y, be sure to visit this site often to view periodic updates. If your club or organization is interested in hosting a hands-on presentation of any of these sports rarities at a meeting place of your choice, contact museum curator Jim Vankoski at 610-909-4919 or
