No, I'm not making this up.
Seriously. I looked it up. Tonight, May 23rd, is a full moon. Craig Biggio has been hit by a pitch 10 times on the night of a full moon, in 79 games. His plunks per game for full moon nights is 0.127 while his overall plunks per game is .106. Or, he gets hit once every 9.391 games overall, while under a full moon he gets hit once every 7.9 games. He also bats .291 when there's a full moon, slightly better than his .286 lifetime average. And yes, all of the 10 full moon plunks were night games. 2 of the 10 were at Wrigley but none were in the month of May.
