It has been a busy week so far for celebrity Redskins fans and Tuesday afternoon brought another fan some exciting news.
Former Astros second baseman Craig Biggio, a longtime Washington Redskins fan, was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame along with pitchers Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz.
It was the most amount of players selected in one class by writers since 1955.
Biggio, who received 82.7% of the vote in his third time on the ballot, spent his entire 20-year career in Houston. He ranks 21st on baseball’s all-time hit list with 3,060 and his 668 doubles are fifth most of all time.
Many believed Biggio should have been voted in two years ago when his name was first eligible. Last year he missed the Hall by just two votes. Notables who missed the cut this year were former Mets catcher Mike Piazza and former Astros first baseman Jeff Bagwell.
Biggio grew up a Redskins fan and still roots for the team, but has also lent his allegiance to the Texans once the franchise moved back to Texas. We’re glad he still remains true to the burgundy and gold.
