Craig Biggio Breaks Down Hall Of Fame Doors With 2015 Induction

“Close, but no cigar” won’t apply to one of MLB’s best players for a second year in a row, as lifetime Houston Astro, Craig Biggio was elected into the Hall of Fame on Tuesday. Biggio, a man who, during his 20-year career, encompassed what it meant to be a team player, received 82.7, of the necessary 75.0, of the vote from the BBWAA. Last winter, the popular Biggio fell...

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...

For the second time in as many years, three first ballot inductees will be hitting the stage this July...

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.

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...
