If you are a fan of the Houston Astros, Sunday, July 26, 2015, is a day to celebrate. This is the day when one of OUR guys - the FIRST member of the team ever, is inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
The great Craig Biggio takes his place in Cooperstown among the greatest players of all time.
This may seem insignificant in this world rampant with turmoil, but this is a day to celebrate the good things. If you love baseball, and especially if you are an Astros fan, you understand, because success has been rare for OUR team.
This is one for the good guys, and Craig Biggio is truly one for the ages, and for Astros fans, he is OUR guy.
