Baseball Hall of Immortals – Inductee #30: Mike Piazza

Of course the greatest offensive catcher in MLB history will be in the Hall of Immortals.

Mike Piazza may not have been a great defensive catcher (though he was better at handling pitchers than many think), but with the bat he was one of the most feared hitters in the National League.

With 427 homeruns and a lifetime batting average of .308, Piazza was a perennial All-Star.

Did he have outside “help” as some have alleged?  At the Hall of Immortals it doesn’t matter if he did or didn’t. What he did on the field is all that matters.

For what he did on the field, Mike Piazza is absolutely an Immortal.
