JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis hit his first big-league home run in style Thursday (4/23/10).

In just his fifth game since being called up from AAA Buffalo, Davis crushed a Kenshin Kawakami pitch 450 feet to right-center, tying the game at 1-1 against the Atlanta Braves (see video).

The New York Times (4/23/10) said Davis has “brought a noticeable boost in spirit around Citi Field in his first big-league week.”

With Friday’s win, the Mets are 5-and-1 since the arrival of Davis, who is hitting .350.
