It was an incredible speech that was touching, moving & very inspirational. Yes Mike Piazza made us all proud of him, his Mets legacy & for being New York Mets fans. Truly one of the best players of that era & one of two Mets greats to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
In a true condition of being great, better & above the rest of your peers, Piazza & Seaver deserve those honors. The Mets may not retire many numbers or have a bunch of Hall of Famers, but the players that do have that honor, surely get it because of their greatness. Not for being something or having watered down credentials in order to make headlines.
Thank you Mike Piazza for making us Mets fans & Italian Americans proud on this day!
