Mike Piazza Getting Snubbed By Baseball Hall Of Fame Voters Is A Damn Travesty
The greatest hitting catcher of all time just got inexplicably denied entry to Cooperstown for the second year in a row.
This is the face of a man who was wronged on Wednesday.
Obviously, the voters must have forgotten that Piazza is a living legend.
So, here's a refresher on the career of Michael Joseph Piazza — a REAL American hero.
Look at Mr. Hollywood.
In 1998, he got traded to the Marlins, and then spun to the Mets.
The Mets were the laughingstocks of the early-to-mid 1990s, a mediocre team led by a catcher named Todd Hundley and a pitcher named Bobby Jones.
Piazza, and to a lesser degree pitcher Al Leiter, made them legitimate contenders. A real team worth watching in a city owned by the Yankees!
This got Mets fans of all ages really excited.
"Piazza Hut" — like Pizza Hut but with Mike Piazza's name!
