JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — It didn’t take long for the the New York Mets to call up 23-year-old first baseman Ike Davis.

Davis, the 18th overall pick in the June 2008 amateur draft, hit a blistering .480 with three home runs, three doubles and 10 RBIs in just 25 at-bats during the Mets’ Spring Training this year. The team sent him to the AAA Buffalo Bisons anyway to get some more plate experience, but an injury suffered by Mets starter Daniel Murphy helped pave the way for Davis’ swift return.

Davis wasted no time contributing. In his first MLB game Monday night (4/19/2010), he went 2-for-4 with one RBI in a 6-1 Mets victory over the Chicago Cubs.

Davis’ father, relief pitcher Ron Davis, played for five teams during an MLB career that stretched from 1978 to 1988.
