      Mike Piazza was born on September 4, in Norristown, Pennsylvania, USA as Michael Joseph Piazza. He is an actor and producer, known for Two Weeks Notice (), Constantine the Great and Married with Children (). He has been married to Alicia . At midnight on Tuesday, Mike Piazza's long-awaited memoir hits bookstores and Kindles everywhere. And the news contained within it, bizarrely and based on some odd expectations, is what Piazza.

        Piazza appeared on percent of the Hall of Fame ballots - he needed to appear on 75 percent of the ballot to get elected. I'm really looking forward to Piazza's book. Former major league catcher Mike Piazza has a new book on store shelves, and it includes denials of steroids use, a reaffirmation of his heterosexuality and details of his infamous World Series.

        Of the home runs hit by Mike Piazza throughout his year career, it's the two-run homer in a regular-season game against the Braves at Shea Stadium, 15 years ago today, that still resonates most profoundly.   Piazza says in the book that election to the Hall of Fame would validate his career. As a lifetime hitter who holds the record for most home runs by a catcher, , and who hit over all.
