JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — Not many rookies inspire a bobblehead doll after one month in the bigs. But New York Mets 1B Ike Davis has.

Of course, this one’s a little different. It’s being issued by the Brooklyn Cyclones (A-Mets), not the Mets. And in a tribute to Davis’ first month in the MLB — during which he tumbled into a dugout three separate times to catch a foul pop-up, all successfully (see videos one, two) — it features Davis hanging upside-down from a fence.

The first 2,500 fans at the Cyclones’ Aug. 2 game will receive the bobblehead free. Davis, 23, hit .256 for the team in 2008, with no home runs and 17 RBIs.
