Piazza is the second-oldest son in a family of five children, of Italian and Slovak descent. He grew up in Phoenixville, where he attended Phoenixville Area High School. Mike’s interest in baseball started when he was a child, and his father’s childhood friend, the manager of the Dodgers team visited the Dodger clubhouse in Philadelphia and invited him to serve as a bat boy. Since his father had great interest in this sport himself, he focused on his son’s potential and encouraged him to continue training. During his schooling at the Miami-Dade Community College, Piazza was drafted by the Dodgers in the 1988 Major League Baseball(MLB) Amateur Draft. He became an excellent hitter, and made his professional league debut in September 1992 against the Chicago Cubs, kick-starting his net worth. A year later, he won the National League MLB Rookie of the Year Award, and was selected to the 1993 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

After seven seasons with the Dodgers, he was traded to the Florida Marlins in May 1998, but appeared in only five games with the team, and was soon traded to the New York Mets, subsequently helping them to play-off appearances consecutively in 1999 and 2000, which led to a National League pennant and a World Series appearance in the 2000 Subway Series. Piazza now earned the nickname “The Monster” for his hitting ability.

Although he was initially spotted as a hitter, Mike had notable defensive achievements. In 2005 he played his final game for Mets as he became a free agent, but soon was signed by the San Diego Padres in January 2006 on a one-year contract. Piazza also represented Italy in the 2006 World Baseball Classic. He started with the Padres as a catcher and clean-up hitter, collecting his 2000th career hit in the major leagues in July 2006.

His net worth was continuing to grow, however, in December the same year he signed as a free agent with the Oakland Athletics, but then not being signed to any MLB team for the 2008 season, Mike retired in May 2008. Upon his retirement, Piazza showed up on the “Shea Goodbye” closing ceremony in September 2008 where he received the final pitch in the history of the stadium from Tom Seaver.

Apart from his successful baseball career, Piazza has also had acting ventures, and appeared in the “Two Weeks Notice” movie while also acting in various TV shows and commercials.

When it comes to his personal life, Mike has been married to Playboy Playmate Alicia Rickter since January 2005 and the couple have two daughters. He is a big fan of heavy metal music and is featured on the Black Label Society’s CD “Stronger Than Death”. Since 2002, Piazza has been living in Miami.
