The Hit King

Congrats to Houston Astros second baseman Craig Biggio for his record-breaking ability to get hit by pitches. Yesterday, in the Astro's game against the Rockies Biggio set the modern career record for the number of times hit by a pitch at 268. The MLB baseball record was set by Hughie Jennings, who was hit 287 times.

For an interesting blog on Biggio's quest to break this record check out PlunkBiggio.blogspot.com. The arm guard Biggio was wearing when he got hit by the pitch will be sent to the Hall of Fame.
