NY Mets Italian / American Legend Mike Piazza Voted to the Baseball Hall of Fame In Cooperstown

Congratulations to Mike Piazza finally becoming enshrined with Baseball's immortals in Cooperstown in the MLB Hall of Fame.

When asked by ESPN about it taking four times on the ballot for election Piazza stated: 

“As I’ve said many times before, when you put everything in historical perspective, Yogi Berra had like four ballots. Joe DiMaggio had three ballots. And so myself being sort of a student of the history of the game, and having respect for the process, it was nail-biting at times but I had a tremendous amount of support throughout my career from the writers and the fans. ... I don’t want to say it was difficult. All of the emotions came into it every year, but again, knowing the history of the game and how many great players throughout this game had to wait years, sometimes many years, it keeps it in perspective.”
