Will Piazza have Mets cap? Dodgers? None?

NEW YORK -- Mike Piazza is not headed to the Hall of Fame this summer, but his enshrinement should come as soon as 2016.

DODGER OR MET?

A look at how Mike Piazza performed as a Met and Dodger during his Hall of Fame-worthy career:

And that begs the question: Which cap should he wear on his plaque -- Mets or Dodgers? Or neither?

The curiosity is timely on Friday, since the Hall of Fame announced that it had selected, in consultation with Randy Johnson, an Arizona Diamondbacks cap for the Big Unit's plaque.

Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson explained: “The museum staff works with each inductee by suggesting an appropriate logo option, or no logo at all. For those whose most compelling contributions clearly took place with one team, a logo makes sense. For those whose careers were built significantly among multiple teams, not having a team logo is equally acceptable. Regardless of the selection, a Hall of Famer belongs to every team for which he played or managed, as well as every fan who followed his career.”

So, in Piazza's case, could no logo be the ultimate resolution?

Piazza spent eight seasons in New York and seven seasons in L.A. The Dodgers drafted him, but he reached the World Series with the Amazin's.
