As one of only four umpires to call over 5,000 Major League Baseball games, Gerry Davis understands the pressure when you step out with the greatest players in the world. If you don’t feel like you belong, it’s hard to focus on giving your best.
About halfway through his storied 40-year career, the Missouri native could no longer ignore a major problem with umpire plate shoes. He and his fellow umpires had a tough choice: A lightweight athletic shoe that offered little protection or a clunky, steelworker-type boot with a heavy guard but poor mobility. It was a lose-lose situation, leaving the umpires feeling uncomfortable on the biggest stage.
With a vision to change the game for amateur umpires, Gerry approached a local manufacturer, and the Gerry Davis plate shoe was born. People all over the country soon wanted a pair of the best umpire shoes in baseball. After that, came requests for other equipment and uniforms, and so did officials from other sports—and from other countries!
Gerry Davis Sports quickly became known as the most reliable retailer in the game for sports official pants. The Davis Charcoal Umpire Pants were the first umpire pants on the market to feature an expansion waistband, and they are still our most popular product every season.
Soon after, Gerry designed the adjustable Davis Basketball Referee Pants and Davis All-Weather Football Referee Pants. Customers have trusted Gerry Davis Sports ever since, and we have now been proudly serving the officiating community for over 25 years.
