Description

Craig Biggio was called up as a catcher midway through the 1988 season, having batted .344 in his minor league career. In 1989, his first full season, Biggio became the Astros’ starting catcher. He won the Silver Slugger Award in 1989. He was a very speedy runner, and an adept base stealer. Astros’ management, in an attempt to keep the rigors of catching from sapping Biggio’s speed, tried him in the outfield part-time in 1990, as he had played 18 games there in the minors. Yogi Berra mentioned Biggio’s height in his book You Can Observe A Lot By Watching, saying, “I always identified with short catchers—they don’t have to stand up as far”.

Presented is one of Biggio’s game used bats from the late 1980’s (1987-89 labeling period) which was early in his career. The ash bat is a Louisville Slugger H176 which shows heavy use with a crack in the barrel. Note, that “Bigg” is written on the knob in red under a white coating for player identification. It weighs in at 29.3 ounces and measures 34″. PSA/DNA bats gave this a GU 6 as a grade. Overall, a fantastic Louisville Slugger that Astros centerfielder Craig Biggio used during on of his first years in the Majors.
