Future Hall of Famer Craig Biggio talks about closing in 3,000 hits in the latest Players Talk show.
Biggio has been a steady defensive player throughout his career, spending significant time at catcher, center field, and second base, the position at which he has won four Gold Glove Awards.
It's Biggio's offense, however, that has made him a sure bet to be enshrined in Cooperstown. Over the course of his 20 Major League seasons, Biggio has slugged nearly 300 home runs and has stolen over 400 bases, while posting a .282 lifetime batting average.
Biggio credits his consistency to an understanding of his changing physical capabilities and to perpetual fine-tuning at the plate.
"As time changes, as pitchers change, and as you change physically, you have to be willing to make adjustments," Biggio tells host Marty Lurie. "It hasn't always been smooth and easy, but I've taken some chances and things have worked out."
