Mets call-up Rajai Davis arrives late via Uber, gets lost in stadium, then hits home run

Rajai Davis had himself quite the Wednesday, one that started with him getting ready for a game in the minor leagues and ended with him hitting a three-run home run in the New York Mets' 6-1 win over the Washington Nationals at Citi Field.

Davis had just taken BP with the Syracuse Mets in Pennsylvania when he got word that he was being called up to the bigs. He then took a two-hour Uber ride to Citi Field, which got him to the game in the third inning.

He then got lost in Citi Field as he tried to find the clubhouse.

Then shortly after getting his uniform on he stepped in as a pinch-hitter and crushed a three-run homer.

Yup, all of that happened.

Here are some great details on his day:

Rajai Davis took BP at Lehigh Valley, found out he was getting called up around 5 p.m. He took a two-hour Uber to Queens.

Davis said he had great conversation with his driver, Jason, who was happy to make the drive.

“We were both excited,” Davis said.

Here he is breaking it down:
