SARASOTA, Fla. -- The "Two Minutes with ..." spring series continues with Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who is coming off a 53-home run season. Davis was the American League's starting first baseman in the 2013 All-Star Game, won a Silver Slugger Award and was a Gold Glove Award finalist.

Favorite food: Mexican food. From Texas.

Favorite movie: Forrest Gump. It's a feel-good story. Saw it a long time ago, will still sit and watch it when it's on.

Special talent: I'm a good reader. See, you're surprised. I read a lot. The last book I read was Francis Chan's, "Crazy Love." As you can see right now [on my iPad], I'm reading "The Blessed Life" [by Robert Morris].

If I wasn't a baseball player I'd be ... Probably a youth pastor.

Favorite offseason place: Home [just north of Dallas]. Just being at home with my family. I hunt a lot so anywhere in the woods, in nature.

Prized possession: My Bible. It's what I carry with me everywhere.
