Mike Piazza's Wife

Clemens' Bat Attack

Was STEROID-Fueled

EXCLUSIVE

071912_mike_piazza_launchMike Piazza has no doubt Roger Clemens was pumped up on steroids during their infamous broken bat standoff in the 2000 World Series ... at least according to Mike Piazza's wife!

Mike and his wife, former Playboy Playmate Alicia Rickter, were leaving dinner last night -- and when we started talking to the retired MLB star ... Alicia blurted out, "Does he (Mike) think Roger Clemens was on 'roids when he broke that bat? Yes! He DOES think that!"

You gotta see the look Piazza gave Alicia the second she opened her mouth. We suspect she had a drink with dinner ... and it's obvious he didn't want to rehash the legendary incident.

If ya missed it (shame on you) ... Piazza's bat was shattered by a Clemens heater during the last Subway Series between the Yankees and Mets. Clemens picked up the jagged barrel of the bat and angrily hurled it at Piazza.

0719_mike_piazza_roger_clemons_APThe violent incident fueled the longstanding debate about Clemens using steroids ... which he's always denied.

But check out the clip ... Piazza actually goes on to say some nice things about Clemens.

Class act. Piazza, that is..

Steroids don't make u a jerk. If you were already a jerk before, then you will simply become a bigger jerk.

Piazza has always been a class act. Probably a greater person than a player.

There is no proof one way or the other that Piazza wasn't on steroids during that era. A lot of players got away with it, and I think Mike was one of them.
