Call to Hall hasn't changed Biggio's demeanor
KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Though working with players at Spring Training is certainly nothing new for Craig Biggio, his arrival at the Astros' Spring Training facilities on Monday marked the first time he's done so with the words "Hall of Famer" attached to his name.
Biggio, who attempted to downplay the label a bit, will be in camp for the next four days, working mostly with the club's Minor League players.
"I've always worn the Astros uniform with pride anyways," Biggio said when asked if it felt any different wearing the uniform this year. "This is the only organization that I've ever been with and I do take a lot of pride in that. Coming down now, it's the same to me. I'm not any different as a person or view myself any differently just because I'm in the Hall of Fame."
