Mike Piazza and the Sept. 11 Homer



Plain and simple — this was the most amazing game I have ever been to.

I hate to say Mike Piazza lifted the fan base on his shoulders with one swing of the bat, but he did. I get chills thinking about it, from performances by Liza Minnelli and Diana Ross to a huge “Rudy!” chant at New York City’s Mayor.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the place during “God Bless America” and, although I was only 14, it is a night I will truly never forget.

Just one of many moments that proves that Mike Piazza should enter the Hall of Fame wearing a Mets’ cap.
