wait, he's retiring when? No, not last Friday.
Some long time Astros fans may remember a player from long long ago named Craig Biggio. It may have been a while since you've seen him play, but he'll be back in action at home tonight against the Cubs - assuming he hasn't forgotten how to play the game during his long absence. This will be Biggio's first game since back on August 3, 2007.
Rich Hill will be pitching for the Cubs when they visit Houston tonight, and he might be looking to plunk Biggio for the first time in his career. Hill has hit 7 batters this season, which is just 2 behind the National League leader in hitting batters.
Craig Biggio was recorded his 80th HBP on August 6, 1996 against the Montreal Expos, and was also plunked by that long lost team on August 6, 2004. He was also got hit twice on August 6, 2003 by Mets Aaron Heilman and Pedro Feliciano.
