NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Piazza has been inducted into the New York Mets' Hall of Fame.
The team honored its former slugger Sunday during a 30-minute ceremony at Citi Field before the season finale against Milwaukee. Piazza becomes the 27th member of the club's Hall of Fame, joining baseball luminaries like Tom Seaver, Casey Stengel and Gary Carter.
Piazza hit 220 of his 427 home runs for the Mets from 1998-05 and led them to a pair of playoff appearances, including the 2000 World Series. His 396 homers as a catcher are the most in major league history.
Piazza wiped away tears after he was introduced to a near-capacity crowd. He got choked up at the podium in shallow center field while addressing his father and other family members seated nearby.
