It must be a pretty awesome feeling to start your day ready to play a triple a game and end your day getting Pie in the face as the Mets new slugger played in Queens and helped the Mets beat the Cubbies 6-1.
He had planned to play against the Scranton Yankees yesterday and even took BP. He was suppose to hit 4th for the Bisons.
Around 12:10 yesterday he learned he was going to the show. Since his father Ron was in Arizona he wouldn't be able to make his first game but he will be there for tonight's game.
The Bisons pulled him from there lineup around 12:25 . He then had to fly to Queens .
When the news got out that Davis was going to be called up the airwaves went buzzing with chatter about how it was about time he was brought up.
With the Mets having no production out of the 1st base position I can understand the move. Daniel Murphy is just starting to hit the ball off the tee so he is still a couple of weeks away. Now who knows if he will have a position.
Davis arrived at Citi Field around 4:30 to find he would be wearing # 29 after tonight's tributer to JRobinson and batting sixth in tonight's game against the Cubs.
He has a quick press conference to talk about how nervous he his etc. Just wants to help the ball club.
He does alot of hugging with the Mets coaches and of course Frenchie gets to him and bust his chops.
Mets take the field and there is Mr.Davis chumming it up with the first base umpire around 7:10pm
Sees his first breaking ball around 7:35 and gets his first hit on the 6th pitch of his 1st at bat!!
Later he gets his first major league RBI as the Mets beat the Cubs 6-1.
Davis does a post game interview and his welcome to NY with a pie in the face from Frenchie
(check out Kevin B. losing it in the background)
Cant ask for a better way to spend your monday.Now he wakes up tuesday set to do it all again. Good Luck Ike.
