Mike Piazza may not live in New York anymore, but he has not lost his flair for theatrics.
As reported by the Associated Press, the former All-Star catcher will be appearing in a Miami City Ballet performance of "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue."
Piazza, who will be dressed as a 1920s-era gangster, will deliver a few lines and then watch the performance from a seat onstage. Unfortunately, it does not sound like Piazza will be doing any dancing.
The former Dodgers, Mets and Marlins star told the Associated Press that his cameo is actually a gift to his 6-year-old daughter, who is taking classes at the Miami City Ballet School.
This is perhaps the second most impressive performance with which Piazza has been associated in recent years. Last March, Piazza's illustrious Major League career was the subject of an opera in New York.
