The Colorado Rockies have hit Craig Biggio with a pitch 27 times, but 13 of those occurred between 1993 and 1998 while the Rockies were managed by Don Baylor. Baylor also watched the team he was managing plunk Biggio 4 more times with the Cubs, so his 17 rank 3rd among managers. Dusty Baker (20) and Tony LaRussa (17) are the only managers whose teams have hit Biggio with a pitch more often than Baylor.
