Mets rookie first baseman Ike Davis is unsure if he'll play during Yom Kippur, which begins Friday at sundown. He's waiting to hear what his mother has to say before making a decision.
"I'm going to see what she says," Davis told ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin .
Davis does not practice Judiasm, but his mother was raised in a religious environment and had several family members lost in the Holocaust. Davis said he considers himself "culturally Jewish." His father, former big-league reliever Ron Davis, is not Jewish.
Davis said he wasn't planning on sitting out, but when the option to sit out was presented to him, he wanted to consider it.
Former Met Shawn Green sat out a night game in 2007, but then played a Saturday day game during the holiday.
Sandy Koufax didn't start Game One of the 1965 World Series because it occurred on Yom Kippur.
