And so like many of his teammates, Davis took time on Mother's Day to honor his mom, Millie, who works as a nurse in the Phoenix area. Other Mets represented their mothers on the field, from Daniel Murphy's pink bats to David Wright's pink ankle guard to John Buck's pink fingernail stickers, which he used to relay signs to his pitchers.
The pink gear was part of an annual Major League Baseball initiative to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research. Game-used items will be auctioned off on MLB.com, with proceeds going to MLB charities in support of breast cancer research.
