Mike Piazza joins Engine 280 to honor NY’s Bravest in memory of 9/11
Almost 22 years ago, the tragedy of 9/11 unfolded in New York City, changing life as we knew it forever. For baseball great Mike Piazza, his mission to visit firehouses and ground zero to honor fallen firefighters helps everyone to never forget.
“It’s out of love,” said Piazza, who hit a home run 10 days following the Sept. 11 attacks that helped sports fans come together during a hard time. “That’s what it’s all about, and I’ll do whatever I can do to honor that.”
On Friday, Piazza and the sons of fallen firefighter Andy Jordan, who lost his life on 9/11, came together at Engine 280 to commemorate the day that he and many other of New York’s Bravest made the ultimate sacrifice.
“As years have gone by, the pain has never really subsided. We live through this, we come here to the fire house every year, we have family members and friends who also lost loved ones, and it means the world to us to see someone like Mike Piazza come here and be there for us,” said Andrew Jordan, son of late firefighter Andy Jordan.
