Houston Astros great Craig Biggio takes piece of the Astrodome home with him

Over the past year, the Houston Astrodome has held several events to sell some of its memorabilia to fans of the historic sports venue in honor of its 50th birthday. One of those fans, former Houston Astros great and 2015 Hall of Fame Inductee Craig Biggio, took advantage of the opportunity and recently purchased his own piece of Astrodome history.

Craig Biggio into the Hall of Fame

Craig Biggio is one of the best second baseman in MLB history, and his stats prove just that Craig Biggio, who spent 20 years with the Houston Astros, was finally voted into the baseball Hall of Fame today after having to inexplicably wait for 3 years. That is more a knock on the format of the vote, but also has to do with what many people tend to talk about when looking at 1990s...

Is this the year for Craig Biggio?

Former Houston Astros second baseman Craig Biggio fell two votes short of election to the Hall of Fame in 2014. Ideally, Craig Biggio should be elected to the Hall of Fame in 2015, but that’s easier said than done. It seems easy to think he’ll pick up those two votes, right? Well, there are things to consider. Upon looking at a Hall of Fame tracker, with 81 public ballots from...

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...

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...
