Craig Biggio Booking Agent Details

Hall of Famer Craig Biggio spent his entire 20-year career playing for the Houston Astros from 1988-2007. Arguably the greatest player in Astros franchise history and certainly one of its most popular, Biggio started his career as catcher before moving to second base in 1992. He was a seven-time All-Star, four-time Gold Glove Award winner and five-time Silver Slugger Award winner. Biggio, along with teammates Lance Berkman and fellow Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell, were part of the “Killer B’s” group that helped lead Houston to the playoffs six times between 1997-2005, including the team’s first-ever appearance in the World Series in 2005.

Known for his longevity, Biggio retired ranked fifth all-time in National League history at bats (10,876), sixth in games played (2,850) and seventh in runs scored (1,844). He became the 27th player in MLB history to reach 3,000 hits when he achieved the feat on June 28, 2007. Biggio had his jersey #7 retired by the Astros in 2008 and is a member of the Astros Hall of Fame and Texas Sports Hall of Fame. In 2015, he was inducted into the National Baseball of Hall of Fame along with John Smoltz, Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson.

Biggio was born on December 14, 1965 in Smithtown, New York and played college baseball at Seton Hall where he was an All-American. He was picked by the Astros in the 1987 MLB draft (1st round) and made his major league debut on June 26, 1988. Off the field, Biggio has been an integral part of the Houston community, working with such organizations as the Sunshine Kids Foundation. He was recognized for his community work with the Hutch Award in 2005 and Robert Clemente Award in 2007. Since retiring, Biggio has worked for the Astros as a special assistant to the GM.
