4. Mike Piazza
Late during the 2001 season, New York Mets catcher Mike Piazza hit a home run that most New Yorker’s still cry over today.
In the first game since 9/11, Piazza went deep against the Atlanta Braves to cap off an extraordinary night.
The closest Piazza came to winning a World Series title came in 2000. There, his Mets lost in five-games to Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees dynasty.
