Glen “Big Baby” Davis – accompanied by his s.o. Jenna Gomez – finally made it to Faneuil Hall recently to shoot hoops with kids at a fundraiser for the Pitching in for Kids foundation, a charity also supported by Sox players Tim Wakefield and Jason Varitek. The Celtics star had been trying to hold the event since his Jan. 1 birthday, but snowstorms kept interfering.

And we hear one of the youngsters asked Davis why he might be suspended. His response? Just walk away. We’ll take that as a “no comment.” (Baby escaped suspension over the weekend for knocking down Cleveland's Anderson Varejao Friday night. And he’s normally so good-humored…)
