Tom Glavine faces the Astros today. He'll be their second opposing pitcher this week to have won a Cy Young award. Glavine has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, having played most of his career with the non-plunking Braves. Glavine hits a batter slightly less than once every 10 starts - 54 hit batsmen in 582 starts. Only 7 pitchers with 500 or more starts have hit fewer batters than Glavine.
Craig Biggio was hit by a pitch on June 9, 2000 by Stan Spencer, and on this day in 1996 by Ken Ryan.
Also, today's New York Times has an excellent article about Biggio and the record, and I'd like to thank Jack Curry for mentioning Plunk Biggio. Although, I'm a little confused about what the Elias Sports Bureau had to say. The box score for the game Biggio has been mentioning when Jeremi Gonzalez hit him in the face is here. Biggio went 1-1 with 3 walks and 2 stolen bases in the game, and while I don't know what inning he got beaned, it wouldn't surprise me at all to hear that it wasn't his last plate appearance of the game. The Astros clinched the division that day.
