HUNTSVILLE, AL — The Huntsville Havoc are excited to announce the retirement of Tyler Piacentini’s jersey during a special ceremony on Friday, November 3, 2023. This significant event will coincide with Tyler Piacentini’s Bobblehead Night presented by Huntsville U, which will honor his exceptional career with the team.
“Having my number retired by the Huntsville Havoc is truly amazing,” said Piacentini. “Ever since my first game, I’ve felt nothing but support from Huntsville and the amazing fans here. I’ve been able to create lifelong memories and forge friendships that will last forever. I’m incredibly proud to call Huntsville my home. This moment will mean the world to me and my family.”
Tyler Piacentini has been a dedicated member of the Huntsville Havoc, demonstrating unwavering commitment and outstanding leadership throughout his time with the team.

“I can’t think of a player more deserving than Ty to be honored,” said Executive General Manager, Glenn Detullo “His work ethic was the heartbeat of our championship teams. He was not only the ultimate competitor, but an incredible teammate.
