This was that Sunday I went down to the Bobby on a whim to catch my last glimpse of Mike Piazza as a Met. He paid me for my trouble by absolutely clubbing two homers. But Mike Jacobs topped him with a Strawberry-esque moonshot, absolutely launched into the private boxes.
It's not usually the moonshot that gets me going in baseball. But when you're on the road and everyone wants to shove a fist in your face, moonshots are a nice crowd-shutter-upper.
