There are so many, but the one that stands out most to me is his home run during the 10-run inning against the Braves in 2000. I had never seen Mike Piazza so pumped up in any one moment as a Met, and I don’t think he ever got so excited again.
The Mets had already tied the game, but I think everyone in the ballpark knew he was going to come up big in that moment. He laced a line drive home run off the façade down the left field line. Shea Stadium erupted in cheers, people were hugging each other and he pumped his fist as hard as he possibly could that night. It was a fun moment, and one of the defining moments of the 2000 season.
