Davis' dugout catch extends legend

Davis' dugout catch extends legend

|
NEW YORK -- This is a long story about Ike Davis.

His arms are long enough for him to cover the plate, no question. And Citi Field learned Wednesday evening that they are long enough to reach halfway across the dugout. Davis made a daring and resourceful catch of a foul pop in the first inning, putting life and limb and livelihood in jeopardy. With his upper legs pressed against the fence atop the Mets' dugout, Davis leaned forward, extended his right arm into the dugout, caught the popup by Jeff Baker and initiated an unrehearsed cartwheel that put him in the dugout and in the memories of the folks who witnessed the play.

Two plays into the game, he had made the catch of the day.
