Ever since I experienced Mike Piazza's post 9/11 home run to beat the Braves in person at Shea, I have been a die-hard Mets fan and exhaustive lover of baseball. I am currently a student at Ithaca College where I am a pitcher on the varsity baseball team. My pitching idols include Sandy Koufax and Tom Seaver. My dream is to one day pitch on the mound at Citi Field wearing the orange and blue. Let's Go Mets!
