News: Piazza Coming To Shea

According to Jim Baumbach at Newsday, Mike Piazza will be in attendance for a special ceremony during the final weekend of the regular season to honor Shea.

Baumbach quotes a person familiar with the situation as saying, “The invitation went out and he accepted. He’ll be there”

…it would be great to see mike again, and he deserves to be part of the celebration…but i can’t imagine anything being better than his last game as a Met…grown men were crying like babies…

…terrific job by the Mets and mike…i was hoping the Mets would have done more to honor their former players this season during each home game when they unveil the number the of games remaining at shea, but they seemed to hand those duties off to sponsors and others involved in the franchise…
