New York Mets’ Howie Rose & Gary Cohen: Top Five Calls Of Last 20 Years

2. Rose calls Mike Piazza‘s game-winning homer after 9/11

Of course, this is a special one.

Not necessarily the greatest call, but certainly the most important of Rose’s career.

This was four years prior to the creation of SNY, so here’s Cohen’s radio call.

Anyway, after the events of September 11th, 2001, the town of New York City was scared and devastated.

On September 21st, in the first post 9/11 baseball game played in New York, Mets star catcher Piazza provided some major healing, and showed the city’s resilience, in hitting a game-winning home run at an emotional night at Shea Stadium.

Watch for yourself.
