The Wednesday Video: Mike Piazza And The 9/11 Home Run

With the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 right around the corner, the Wednesday Video will go back a decade and recall Mike Piazza's stirring eighth-inning, go-ahead home run as the New York Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves, 3-2, on September 21, 2001, which was the first sporting event in New York City since the terrorist attacks. The home run turned a mourning Shea Stadium into a cathartic, tear-filled place of triumph and cleansing. Here's a video remembering that unforgettable night in Queens.
