|The Mets sent a congratulatory email to fans. Piazza would like to be|
inducted into the Hall of Fame as a Met but the choice is not the player's.
Piazza finished his career with a .308 batting average, .545 slugging percentage, 427 home runs and 1,335 RBIs. Piazza's 369 home runs and as a catcher is the record. He averaged a home run every 16.2 at bats, placing him 34th for all time, regardless of position. I saw many Piazza home runs at Shea Stadium but one is particularly memorable.
