Craig Biggio did it all over a career that spanned three decades and 20 major league seasons.
On Wednesday afternoon, lifelong Astro Craig Biggio – along with every other player on this year’s Baseball Hall of Fame ballot - was left out of Cooperstown.
Just 24 hours after failing to get the necessary votes to get elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Astros legend Craig Biggio cracked jokes and waxed philosophical about not getting in.
Reaction from around the baseball world has been steady since the Hall of Fame announced early Wednesday afternoon that there wouldn’t be a single enshrinee in Cooperstown’s class of 2013.
It’s not like the signs weren’t there but the reality of Craig Biggio not getting voted into the Hall of Fame Wednesday is still shocking.
