The average reported attendance for games when Craig Biggio has been hit by a pitch is 27,957 - slightly higher than the average attendance for all Astros games from 1988 through yesterday (26,909). Road plunks have had slightly higher attendance than home plunks, 28,263 to 27,673.
The largest reported crowd to witness a Biggio plunking was 52,806 at Dodger Stadium on May 7, 2000, and they saw 2 that day, handed out by Orel Hershiser. Just 15 days later, on May 22, 2000, at County Stadium in Milwaukee, only 3,913 people showed up to watch Biggio get drilled in the first game of a double header, making that the smallest crowd to view a Biggio HBP.
