Prince - cocreator of Faith and Fear in Flushing, "the blog for Mets fans who like to read," and author of Amazin' Again, the story of the 2015 National League champions - explores the parallel paths Piazza and the Mets set out on in the early 1990s and how their individual journeys merged into a mutual quest for transcendence.
