Jewish Baseball Star Ike Davis Debuts with a Blast
New York Mets’ Jewish up and coming star 1st basemen Ike Davis launched his first homerun of the spring on Sunday leading the Mets to a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox. The game was played at Digital Domain Park in Port St Lucie Florida home to the Mets during their spring training month in March.
With 2 outs in the bottom of the third inning and the Mets already on top by two runs Davis crushed an 0-1 pitch to deep right field off Boston lefty Andrew Miller. The ball cleared the wall in right field and landed in the picnic area where fans were sitting and enjoying the game.
Davis’ performance on Sunday overshadowed the much anticipated debut of newly converted right fielder Carlos Beltran who enters this season on the last year of his 119 million dollar blockbuster contract that brought him to New York seven years ago. Beltran finished the day 1-for-2 with a single, and a run scored.
