A special congratulations goes out to Houston Astros slugger Craig Biggio for his tough-as-nails approach in the batters box. The AP story reads:
DENVER (AP) _ Craig Biggio was hit on the elbow by Colorado's Byung-Hyun Kim on Wednesday, breaking the modern record for being hit by a pitch.
Biggio was hit on the padding guarding his right elbow during the fourth inning of Houston's game against the Rockies, marking the 268th time he's been plunked, the post-1900 record. He tied Don Baylor's record in the fifth inning Tuesday night, when Colorado's Jason Jennings hit him in the lower back.
Biggio has been hit 12 times this year, his 10th time in double-digits in 12 seasons.
Well everyone's got to be remembered for something. This Bud's for you Biggio!.
