Featured autograph - Mike Piazza

I told my friend I was going to drop a ball on Piazza at the Inland Empire 66'ers game Sunday night until I realized it wasn't that Mike Piazza - in all seriousness, it's not that confusing to figure out that 44-year old former MLB superstar catcher Mike Piazza would not be pitching [much less doing anything else] for a Single-A team in the California League, though seeing the name does throw people off for a moment.

The younger Mike Piazza is old to be a serious prospect in any MLB organization, but the Angels have held onto him for parts of five minor league seasons - so perhaps if he continues to show something [maybe as a swingman], he may get an opportunity to reach the Major Leagues at some point, even if it's only for a cup of coffee.
