On Sunday, September 29 at Citi Field, Mike Piazza, the greatest home run-hitting catcher of all-time, will be inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame. Piazza will become the 27th member of the Mets Hall of Fame during the Mets Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony prior to the 1:10 PM game against the Milwaukee Brewers – the final game of the 2013 season. It’s about time… But why stop there? Here’s something I photoshopped about […]
According to Adam Rubin on Twitter, Mets closer Bobby Parnell has lost 30 pounds since he began suffering from the herniated disk. However, Collins also added that team doctors believe that Parnell will be ready to go by Spring Training. The hard-throwing righthander had surgery to repair the herniated disk in his neck on September 10. The procedure was performed by renowned spinal surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins in California who has treated more professional athletes with spinal injuries […]
This was an interesting season for the St. Lucie Mets. In the first half they finished in second place, eight games out of first and missed making the playoffs. In the second half, they fought and nearly pulled off a miracle at the end before running out of time. It was a very good season for a team with some talented hitters. One of those hitters, outfielder Dustin Lawley, put up impressive numbers. He was awarded with […]
Rust? What rust? David Wright had sort of a triumphant return last night as the Mets beat the Phillies 6-4 in the opening game of their weekend series. Wright had terrific night at the plate and showed no rust from his seven week layoff going 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, and a run scored. What was amazing about his return was that Wright played in no rehab games in between his injury and his […]
Time does not heal all wounds. The pain of what happened on September 11th, 2001 has not subsided. We can put the tragedy of what took place on that day in the back of our minds, but we can never put it out of our hearts. Every single day, Americans are still dying because of 9/11. Their lives continue to raise the death toll of that tragic day. Let’s take some time to remember those […]
Here is a story I wrote for The Tablet newspaper of the Diocese of Brooklyn, N.Y. We will always remember Mike Piazza‘s “Healing Power of a Swing,” but it turns out the Braves’ pitcher that surrendered the home run, Steve Karsay, grew up just 15 minutes from Shea Stadium. Here’s what Karsay had to say about that whole experience. Originally published in The Tablet newspaper. No one will soon forget how our nation was devastated […]
No one said moving into first place would be easy for the Brooklyn Cyclones. But with the Abderdeen Ironbirds losing Tuesday night, the Cyclones could have moved a half game into first place had they won. It took 16 innings – the longest game of the season for Brooklyn – but the Cyclones fell 5-3 Tuesday to the Tri-City Valleycats at MCU Park. The team remains a half-game out of first place in the McNamara […]
Congratulations to Mets top prospect Travis d’Arnaud who got just enough of a Rick Porcello fastball to send it over the left-center field wall for his first career home run. It was a two-run shot in the fourth to put the Mets ahead 3-2 at the time, and after a hearty round of congratulations from his teammates, the crowd at Citi Field clamored for a curtain call to which D’Arnaud obliged them with a quick wave of […]
