Report: Mike Piazza’s family was unhappy to learn he had bought the ‘Pittsburgh’ of Italian soccer

By the sound of it, Mike Piazza had a plan for a pretty idyllic post-retirement life. Buy a small soccer team, eat in Italy and watch the kids grow up nestled in his family’s homeland.

One year later, the Mets great was yelling at a press conference about how his team was being pushed around and taken advantage of.

Two years later, he is now explaining to The Athletic how it all went so, so wrong.

For those of us who could use some comic relief in our lives….
