What is Craig Biggio’s Net Worth?
Craig Biggio is an ex-MLB player and coach who has a net worth of $40 million. As a professional baseball player for the Houston Astros from 1988 to 2007, Craig Biggio had a career that lasted 20 years.
He has won various awards throughout his career, including five Silver Slugger Awards and four Gold Glove Awards. He was also a seven-time MLB All-Star.
In Smithtown, New York, Craig Alan Biggo was brought into this world on the 14th of December 1965. Long Island, New York’s Kings Park High School is where Biggio received his diploma.
He turned down multiple football scholarships after winning the Hansen Trophy as Suffolk County’s top football player in 1983 to attend Seton Hall University and play baseball, the sport he loves so much.
With colleagues and future Major League Baseball players John Valentin and Mo Vaughn, he polished his All-American baseball playing skills at Seton Hall University.
The Houston Astros selected Craig Biggio with the 22nd pick overall in the first round of the 1987 MLB Draft. Biggio started catching for the Astros in his rookie campaign in 1989.
He received his first Silver Slugger award that year, the first of five he would get. Biggio, a catcher who had been selected to the National League All-Star team in 1991, was persuaded to move to second base during spring training in 1992 by Astros management.
In 1992, Craig became the first player in baseball history to be an All-Star at both second base and catcher. A catcher’s successful move to the middle infielder is a remarkable accomplishment.
The catcher, second baseman, and outfielder all rose to prominence. He is currently ranked 21st all-time with 3,060 career hits and is the ninth member of the 3,000-hit club to have collected all of his hits while playing for the same team.
On June 28th, 2007, he singled against the Colorado Rockies and joined the 3,000-hit club, becoming the 27th player in baseball history and the first Astros player ever.
Craig currently owns the record for the most doubles by a right-handed hitter, capping an amazing career in fifth place all-time. He is still the only baseball player in history to have 3,000 hits, 400 steals, 600 doubles, and 250 home runs.
Also, with a staggering 287 hits during a career, he holds the record for most pitches hit by a pitch.
The Houston Astros retired Craig Biggio’s No. 7 and inducted him into the team’s Hall of Fame. He also won the Hutch Award in 2005, the Roberto Clemente Award in 2007, and other honors.

On February 10, 1990, Craig Biggio wed Patty Egan. The couple has three children together: Conor and Cavan, two males, and Quinn, a daughter.
Toronto Blue Jays selected Cavan in the draft. In Spring Lake, New Jersey, the Biggio family lives in a home they named “Home Plate.”
