The New York Mets had a busy offseason.
With the additions of Max Scherzer, Chris Bassitt, and Starling Marte among others, there is a lot of excitement surrounding the Mets as we inch closer and closer to the start of the 2022 regular season.
The Mets are loaded and look ready to make some noise in the NL East this year.
But on Monday, there was a little more buzz around the Mets camp, as a legend stopped by.
The legend in question was their former catcher Mike Piazza, who is best known for his days in New York, especially for the “home run that healed New York” after 9/11.
Piazza was in full uniform too, as he provided some instruction for the players at camp.

Return Of A Legend
It’s always nice to see former players get back in uniform.
The same can be said for Piazza.
This is something we see a lot of during spring training, as team legends come back and act as instructors for the players.
Piazza is a legend in New York.
After all, he is a Hall of Famer, and he certainly has some great knowledge to share with the players at Mets camp.
There’s something to be said for former players that do this.
It’s always nice to see that they are invested in their former teams and their current players, showing up to camp to share some wisdom and help the players grow.
Players can certainly benefit from having a legend around to share his knowledge.
Even the legends were rookies at one point, and it’s good to see them want to help the current generation of players thrive at the big-league level.
