Frank Viola's daughter makes U.S. Olympic diving team

The Viola family may want to clear some room on the mantle next to Frank's 1988 AL Cy Young award.

Brittany Viola, Frank's 25-year-old daughter, qualified for the the U.S. Olympic diving team after winning the women's 10-meter platform event Sunday at national trials in Federal Way, Wash.

"I know that he is watching every moment," Viola said of her dad, who's now the pitching coach for the Savannah Sand Gnats -- the Mets' Class A affiliate.
