Mike Piazza Speaker Profile
Mike Piazza Biography
Piazza was the last player the Dodgers drafted in the 1988 draft. He was their selection in the 62nd round. It is believed that the pick was partly a favor on the part of Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, who is godfather to one of Piazza's brothers and, like Piazza, grew up in Norristown. Piazza swore he'd learn to catch if he was drafted. Piazza's Major League debut came with the Dodgers in 1992, when he appeared in 28 games. He then won the National League MLB Rookie of the Year Award in 1993.
Piazza finished second in the NL Most Valuable Player voting behind San Diego's Ken Caminiti after batting .336 with 36 home runs, 105 RBI, 87 runs and 16 doubles in 148 games in 1996. He also led the All-Star voting in 1996, 1997, and 2000. He hit more than 30 home runs in eight consecutive seasons (1995-2002). Mike has nine career 30-homer seasons and hit .300 in nine consecutive seasons, dating from 1993 to 2001.
Only 5 other players have ever had over 400 home runs with over a .300 life time average while never striking out more than 100 times in a season.
