Mets | Piazza Becomes New Catcher Home Run King

Peter Botte of The New York Daily News reports New York Mets C Mike Piazza eclipsed Carlton Fisk for the career mark for home runs by a catcher, blasting his 352nd at the position in the first inning of an 8-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants. "It's something I'm very proud of," Piazza said. "The only reason it holds a little more significance is because of the physical demands of the position. To do that, to hit that many home runs... you have to be healthy and somewhat consistent."
