Former All-Star Piazza Hangs Up The Cleats

Mike Piazza is retiring from baseball following a 19-season career in which he became one of the top-hitting catchers in history.
"After discussing my options with my wife, family and agent, I
felt it is time to start a new chapter in my life," he said in a
statement released by his agent, Dan Lozano. "It has been an
amazing journey."
The 39-year-old Piazza was not on a team this season. Taken by the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 62nd round of the 1988 amateur draft, Piazza became a 12-time All-Star, making the NL team 10 consecutive times starting in 1993.
He finished with a .308 career average, 427 home runs and 1,335
RBIs for the Dodgers (1992-98), Florida (1998), New York Mets
(1998-05), San Diego (2006) and Oakland (2007).
