Way to go, Biggio!


Tonight Craig Biggio became the 27th MLB player to reach 3000 hits in his career (and only the 9th to do so with the same team)! I have been a Biggio fan for a long time - he has played his entire 20-year career with the Houston Astros. Not only did he get hits 2998, 2999, and 3000 tonight, but he added hits 3001 and 3002! Five hits in one game! Carlos Lee capped off the night with a walk-off home run in the 11th - a grand slam at that! It was a great night in Minute Maid Park, indeed!

Congratulations, Craig! Well done!

Cooperstown, here he comes! Not that there was any doubt of that even before tonight.

We were kind of bummed, since Bubba and Bubba's Dad are going tonight, but I'm still happy for him, and glad we got to watch!

I was very pleased myself. When I left the parking lot at the airport I even took their free newspaper since it had him on the cover.

We went to the gane the next night. It wasn't quite as exciting as B's 3k, but it came close!
