Piazza among ex-Mets in Sept. 11 ceremony
NEW YORK -- The Mets announced Tuesday that former Mets players Mike Piazza, Todd Zeile, Robin Ventura, John Franco and manager Bobby Valentine will participate in pregame ceremonies at Citi Field on Sept. 11, the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks in Manhattan.

All five were members of the 2001 Mets team that played in the first Major League game in New York City following the attacks, with Piazza hitting a dramatic go-ahead home run in the eighth inning.

The Mets also plan to commemorate Sept. 11 by visiting firehouses throughout the city for a 10th straight year, as well as continuing their partnership with Tuesday's Children, a non-profit organization providing an array of support programs and services to the Sept. 11 community, including the families of victims and first responders.
