Mike Piazza, the heavy metal-loving, Playboy bunny-marrying former Mets slugger, was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame today. The 12-time All-Star is widely considered the greatest offensive catcher in baseball history. (His defense was so-so.) He will become the second player, after Tom Seaver, to enter the Hall of Fame with a Mets cap on his plaque.

Piazza, who was the 1,390th player chosen in the 62nd round of the 1992 draft (there are now only 40 rounds), holds the career record for home runs hit by a catcher (427), had 1,335 RBIs, batted .308 for his entire career, and also was the subject of a very tender Belle & Sebastian song (he talked about the song in his memoir).

Piazza, who was the Rookie of the Year winner in 1993, played for the Dodgers, Marlins, Padres and Athletics. He played 1,630 games as a catcher over his 16 years in the league, and he really hated Roger Clemens. He was with the Mets from 1998-2005, and hit 220 homers over eight seasons with the Mets alone. He also really, really hated Roger Clemens.

He becomes one of two players to make it to Cooperstown this year along with Ken Griffey Jr., who got over 99 percent support. Congratulations Ken!

Here's the full tally of the vote, along with everyone who won't be on next year's ballot. Pour one out for David Eckstein.

The Mets, who have yet to retire Piazza's number, said in an email to fans, "Piazza landed in Queens in May 1998 and helped propel the Mets to the National League Championship in 2000. His home run on September 21, 2001 in New York City's first sporting event since the 9-11 attacks began to help the city heal. Piazza was the 27th member inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame on September 29, 2013 and will now take his place amongst the greatest to ever the play the game." You can see that moment below.

Piazza was also the star of a very informative Pert Plus commercial in 1997.

Although rumors that he used steroids have haunted him his whole career, to the point that he narrowly missed making the Hall Of Fame his first times (though he has never being directly linked to PEDs), Piazza has endured as a fan favorite. As Will Leitch put it, "Piazza was one of the best players in one of baseball's greatest eras, and he looked like the guy who did your plumbing."
