“Some of us were a little bit jumpy, not just from the lack of feeling secure, but just because we didn’t know if it was the right thing to do or the right place to be,” Mike Piazza said. “But to see the way people reacted to it, it was a good feeling to know that it was.”

Though many people who were at Shea that night believe the reaction of the crowd of 41,235 to his home run was the loudest they have ever heard in a stadium, Piazza can’t say.

“I don’t remember a lot about that night, only because I was emotionally a wreck,” he said. “[The home run] was an exhilarating push of emotion. You saw people had tears in their eyes. Others just wanted to cheer about something. I was very touched.”
