Mike Piazza’s Hall of Fame induction speech

A week ago, I posted Ken Griffey, Jr.’s HOF induction speech.  So it seems only fitting for me to also post Mike Piazza’s speech.  Unfortunately, this is the best video I was able to find.  If you are the type of person who gets motion sick, you might consider passing on watching and just give it a listen.


Belle and Sebastian: “Piazza, New York Catcher”

The title of this song amuses me, as Mike Piazza only gets a passing mention in the song, and that mention references a rumor from 2002 that alleged that Piazza was gay.  Other references to baseball are more philosophical and mythical.  Honestly, the song isn’t about baseball nearly as much as one would think.  All in all, I found this tune to be a rather sleepy one.
