Craig Biggio missed being elected to the Hall of Fame a year ago in a regrettable collective decision by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Things are looking good for 2014, but a filmmaker who supports Biggio for Cooperstown is taking no chances. He's produced a 7-minute video (for No. 7 of the Houston Astros) which goes above and beyond...
"in search of stories you won't hear on ESPN, of stats you won't find on the backs of baseball cards, of the side of Craig Biggio known only to a few..."
As if 3,060 hits, 414 stolen bases and seven All-Star game selections weren't enough, did you also know that:
• Craig Biggio saved a woman in Nebraska from the wreckage of her house after it was destroyed by a tornado
• Craig Biggio stood sentinel wielding a bat outside the bedroom window of a young boy so that he won't have bad dreams anymore
• Craig Biggio played the guitar wearing batting gloves for a band in need
Great video. Even greater person. He's destined for Cooperstown for sure now.
