Not that Matt Davidson of the Arizona Diamondbacks organization noticed. When he went deep for a two-run homer Sunday at the MLB Futures Game, Davidson slipped into his own little world, like he usually does. Davidson secured MVP honors in Sunday's game with a two-run home run in a 4-2 win for the United States over the World team. Davidson's batting helmet and gloves are being donated to the Hall of Fame in Coopertown, which wanted his bat too, but he wanted to keep it for the home run derby in Reno on Monday for the Triple-A All-Star Game. Hitting four blasts in the final round, the D-backs prospect totaled 11 home runs in the competition, which lasted three rounds.
