Bryshear Barnett Davis (born October 19, 1943) is an American former Major League Baseball outfielder. Davis was born in Oakland, California and attended John C. Fremont High School in Los Angeles and California State University, Los Angeles.
Davis made his big league debut at age 19 with the Houston Colt .45s on April 9, 1963. He appeared in 34 games during the 1963 season (including the September 27 game in which all nine of the Colts starters were rookies) but did not see significant action in the major leagues again until 1971, when he played for the Chicago Cubs. Following the 1971 season, he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers with pitchers Jim Colborn and Earl Stephenson in exchange for outfielder José Cardenal. Davis batted .318 in 1972 in a utility role with the Brewers. His final game as a major-leaguer was on October 4, 1972.
Davis attended high school with future professional baseball players Leon McFadden, Willie Crawford, Bobby Tolan, and Bob Watson. On June 14, 1963, Davis hit the only home run of his major-league career, against Jack Sanford of the San Francisco Giants.
