Museum exhibit highlights impact of sports after 9/11

A new exhibit at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum highlights the impact of sports after the 2001 attacks, including the Mets' win in New York's first major sporting event after 9/11.

"Comeback Season: Sports After 9/11" explores how sports helped unite the country and features interviews with athletes such as Hall of Fame catcher Mike Piazza.

"In that first game back, the home team came back and won," said Piazza, whose two-run homer for the Mets in the eighth inning on Sept. 21, 2001, lifted the team past Atlanta. "That's exactly the lesson the city, the country and the world needed to see that night."
