Craig Biggio got his 3,000th hit. Finally. Tried to stretch it into a double (guy's got 600 and change of those, why not one more?) but got thrown out.

Regardless, in a season that flat out stinks in Houston, a bit of light in the middle of the tunnel as Biggio punched his ticket to Cooperstown. :)

The cool thing? All 3k came with one team; rarely see that anymore.

The second cool thing? My boss (well, the cio, so my bosses boss) played with him in AA back in 87 or so.

The really cool thing? They're still pretty good friends, and as my company did the ground work for MinuteMaid Park, he's been in a few times.....

Kudo's to Craig. (y)

:)

Well done Biggio...Probably get him into the Hall.

best 'ole days.....the REAL baseball era, not the 'juiced' era....:)

yeah, pretty sure 3k will punch his ticket for cooperstown.....first ballot hall of famer, I'd say....I'd be pretty astounded if he weren't, especially with over 600 doubles in that mix...
