CRAIG BIGGIO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Craig Biggio vs Derek Jeter: who’s better?

Craig Biggio is one of the best second baseman in MLB history, and his stats prove that Derek Jeter has been the talk of baseball for the past few weeks as his career starts to wind down. There’s no doubt that Jeter will be a Hall of Famer, but really, in my opinion, if Craig Biggio has not gotten in yet, then Jeter should have to wait as well. That being said, there is no chance...

Nolan Ryan's first pitch for the Astros is just a bit outside

Nolan Ryan showed he's still got no-hit stuff when he threw out a ceremonial first pitch Tuesday. However, what Ryan didn't hit was the catcher's glove. Or come anywhere close to it. The 67-year-old Ryan, now a consultant for the Astros, took the mound before the season opener with the Yankees at Minute Maid Park. On the receiving end was another Astros legend, Craig Biggio, who...

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Craig Biggio Snubbed By The Hall

Craig Biggio was a mere two votes short of being enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame on his second ballot.  To me and many—even outside of Houston—he should have been a first ballot player.  As a member of the exclusive 3,000 hit club it should have been a lock.  Add to that he excelled at catcher, second base and center field and racked up 3,060 hits, 291 homers, 414 steals...

Hall of Fame voter says Craig Biggio is a 'cheater'

After the 2013 vote yielded no Hall of Famers, this year's was supposed to be the one that helped baseball (and its writers) turn the corner. The whole Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens steroid debates had come and gone, Jack Morris would (finally) be off the ballot after 15 tries and with the likes of Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine eligible, Cooperstown was prepared to, once again, burst...

Video raises awareness of Craig Biggio's 'lesser-known' achievements

Despite playing his entire 20-year MLB career with the Houston Astros, earning seven All-Star Game appearances, four Gold Glove Awards, five Silver Slugger Awards and collecting 3,060 career hits; Craig Biggio still wasn't able to get enough votes in 2013 to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. In 2014, Biggio will be on the MLB Hall of Fame ballot once again, and a group of his fans...

Craig Biggio battles zombies in Hall of Fame 'Awareness Video'

Most people know that Craig Biggio had over 3,000 hits for the Houston Astros.  You probably knew he played three different positions, played in a bunch of All-Star games, and even a World Series.  What you didn’t know, was that he’s a guitar hero, crime fighter, fights zombies, and will guard against nightmares if you’re a kid.  Take a look at this video pointing out some...
