Mike Piazza      

National Baseball Hall of Famer, Twelve-Time MLB All-Star, Ten-Time Silver Slugger Award Winner & New York Times Best-Selling Author

Michael Joseph Piazza is known as the greatest offensive catcher of all-time. His 396 career homeruns as a catcher (427 HR overall) place him comfortably atop the list for homeruns by a catcher. Although most notable for his performance as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets, Mike Piazza's 16-year career included tours with the Florida Marlins, San Diego Padres, and Oakland Athletics. The 12-time All Star and 10-time Silver Slugger Award winner was named Rookie of the Year in 1993 and All-Star Game MVP in 1996. Always a fan favorite, Mike Piazza's rise from 62nd round pick (1,390th overall) in 1988, to Rookie of the Year in 1993, and subsequent All-Star Game appearances, is truly inspiring. Considered by many to be a first ballot Hall of Famer, Mike Piazza will first appear on the ballot in 2013.

Mike Piazza is married to his wife, Alicia. The two of them live in Miami Beach FL, with their daughter, Nicoletta Veronica Piazza, who was born on February 3, 2007.
