Mike Piazza Breaks Fisk’s Home Run Record
Date: May 5, 2004
It looked like a routine Mike Piazza home run, but this one meant so much more. Piazza notched his 352nd career longball as a catcher in a game against the San Francisco Giants at home, breaking the record set by National Baseball Hall of Fame backstop Carlton Fisk. Piazza finished his career with 396 home runs as a catcher and 427 in total.
