Greg Prince and Jason Fry

Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

Mike In Action

We knew he could hit. He sure could catch, too. When I think of Mike Piazza, certainly the home runs come to mind, but I also remember the hustle, exemplified by the grab he made at the Cardinal dugout in the 2000 playoffs. I liked, too, the way he chugged down the line on ground balls, stomping toward first as if he stomped hard enough, maybe a ball would be jarred loose.

    And Mike got knocked for his defense because of his throwing, but he was terrific at blocking balls in the dirt (which is far more important) and pitchers seemed to like throwing to him (also seemingly important).
    How wonderful was his retirement statement also? His words about Mets fans were so kind and gracious that it really makes all the cheers we sent his way seem reciprocal.
