Mike Piazza

As a Mets fan my whole life, Piazza was my all time favorite Met.  While I understood why the Mets let him walk away when his contract was over, it was still painful to see nonetheless.  I was at his first game back at Shea Stadium the next season, and to this day, I don't ever remember seeing a visiting player receive a standing ovation when they came up to bat like Piazza did that day.  It sent chills through the stadium, and you could even see how moved Piazza was by the gesture.
