I Like Ike - Ike Davis Tshirts

I freakin’ love Ike Davis, first baseman for the New York Mets.

Here are snippets from the article you can find on DNAinfo.

It’s not yet June and the 23-year-old freshman first baseman already has a tribute shirt — an appropriation of the 1950s-era Eisenhower presidential campaign slogan.

But Davis’s play is not the only thing exciting fans.

With many Jewish baseball fans in New York, Davis’s roots have become a subject of fascination. His mother is Jewish, Ike was named for his Jewish grandfather (Isaac), and a number of his Jewish family members perished in the Holocaust.

“It’s cool,” said Davis, of being Jewish and playing in New York. “Jerry Seinfeld turned to his kid and said, ‘Look, you can be Jewish and be a professional ballplayer.’ In that sense it’s a good thing, for sure.”

Davis will donate all of his “I Like Ike” T-shirt proceeds to Ewing’s Sarcoma research, a form of cancer that took the life of his close friend, Mike Leo.

Cannot get enough of this guy! A gutte nishama!
