Craig Biggio: Houston’s Hero


You wouldn’t know it, mainly because the media have been focusing on three of the greatest pitchers who dominated during and despite a time of unprecedented offensive production in the Major Leagues, but Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz are not the only ones being inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame this weekend. Long-time Houston Astros’ catcher turned one of baseball’s all-time best second basemen, Craig Biggio, will also become a member of the Hall of Fame in 2015.

While this might not seem like a bigger deal than the three pitchers he will be being inducted with, it is. It’s a very big deal. It’s a special moment for the franchise, team, the city of Houston and Astros’ fans everywhere. Why? Craig Biggio will be the first player in the history of Houston baseball to enter the Hall donning an Astros’ cap on his plaque.
