Craig Biggio to the Hall of Fame! We Salute you!

Craig Biggio is set for the Hall of Fame. Growing up in Houston, Texas I had the privilege to witness a large part of his long tenured career in Houston. As one of the iconic players that spent his career with one team I salute him. Like Derek Jeter, Jeff Bagwell, Cal Ripken he grinded every day to be the best player he could be. When he was making the transition from second base to centerfield it was rumored he jogged 10 miles a day to get his legs ready for the long major league season. Biggio is a shoo in for the Hall of Fame and with 3,000 hits he almost concretes his name among the all-time greats. Aside from his baseball career he has set an astounding example as a great samaritan in not only Houston but in all of Major League Baseball. A friend of mine worked at the Wellsfargo bank inside the Randall’s grocery store and said Biggio would come in and do his banking and was the nicest guy. Some athletes fame and fortune often turns them into a hot head, not Biggio, every interaction I’ve heard of with the guy has been nothing but positive. Biggio deserves his bid for the Hall of Fame and as a Houston fan I hope he gets elected along with Jeff Bagwell whom he played most of his career alongside. Biggio, one of the games greatest lead off hitters of the 90′s era and a Houston sports icon. God Bless you Craig!!! Go Astros!!!
