  • Mike Piazza Thread

    Growing up, my favorite ball-player was Mike Piazza, one of the greatest right-handed hitters of all-time. His 2013 Hall of Fame induction is approaching, and he has a memoir titled "Open Mike" due out next year.

    Use this thread to discuss anything Mike Piazza related!

    Here are some nice pictures and a video relating to Piazza's signature moment on 9/21/01, the first sporting event in NYC after 9/11:

    Mike Piazza sits on a rooftop near the World Trade Center disaster five days after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. The plume of smoke in the upper-right hand corner comes from the site and the Twin towers would have been able to have been seen above the middle buildings:

    How does this not have any responses!!

    I love Piazza's swing. I need to amend my "Most aesthetic swings" choices to include his unique high-finish violent swing.

      I love how they said; 'this one has a chance' when the ball was hit at least 450 feet. Talk about trying to be melodramatic.

        Very great player. He's what you'd call an underrated Hall of Famer.
