LOS ANGELES -- Ike Davis was slapped with a $750 fine and will not be suspended for making contact with umpire Manny Gonzalez on Tuesday at Wrigley Field.
Davis will donate the money to the Baseball Assistance Team, which aids retired players.
Davis' glove made contact with the first-base ump's left arm when he spun to complain about a safe call on a pickoff attempt. He was ejected. Replays showed Davis actually had successfully tagged out the runner, and Davis insisted the contact with Gonzalez was unintended.
