Craig Biggio stood by his locker recently and solo-danced the hokey pokey. The Houston Astros' second baseman put his left elbow in and his left knee out. He put his left forearm in and shook it all about. He was pointing out faded bruises and bumps that he has received in his 18-season career - one that achieved baseball immortality yesterday when Colorado Rockies starter Byung Hyun Kim threw a 1-2 pitch that nicked Biggio's left elbow. The Astros' second baseman calmly trotted up the first base line and into the record books - passing former Oriole Don Baylor for first on the modern-day list of being hit by a pitch with No. 268. Everyone together now: Ouch.

The Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2014 is being announced on Wednesday, and it is completely loaded with lots of candidates who are eligible for the first time, along with a slew of candidates who have been on the ballot previously, and one candidate, Jack Morris, who is on the ballot for the 15th and last time. I'm obviously not an eligible Hall of Fame voter, but as somebody who has been a baseball fan for 30 years, I've got to see all of these guys play live or on TV. Voters get the opportunity to cast a ballot for 10 different players, so if I got to cast a ballot, this would be who would get my vote: Jeff Bagwell : Few National League hitters were more feared than Bagwell, the first of the Killer B's. A .297 career hitter with 400+ home runs despite spending more than half of his career playing in the cavernous Astrodome, he was a 2-time National League MVP who had an underrated all around game, including good defense and two 30-30 seasons that most people seem to forget.

He is Mr. November, and every other month in which Major League Baseball is played. He has more hits than Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, a higher career batting average than Mickey Mantle and a higher postseason average than Joe DiMaggio. And it won't be long before Derek Jeter is a new lord of New York Yankees lore. With six more hits, the shortstop will become the first player to collect 3,000 hits while playing exclusively with the most storied franchise in baseball. He resumed his pursuit Monday against the Cleveland Indians after spending the last three weeks on the disabled list with a strained right calf.

HOUSTON - The raucous sellout crowd that gathered yesterday afternoon inside Minute Maid Park to cheer Roger Clemens and the Houston Astros to the franchise's first playoff series victory may have witnessed a historic moment, all right. Only it was the kind of moment that for so long has turned Astros fans' faces every shade of orange and red featured on the team's retro jerseys. After Clemens pitched five solid innings and departed with a three-run lead, the Atlanta Braves pounced on the Houston bullpen for a 6-5 victory in Game 4 of a National League Division Series that might have marked the final start of Clemens' Hall of Fame career.

HOUSTON - Orioles manager Mike Hargrove labored over last night's starting lineup for hours, soliciting opinions from several coaches, writing names, erasing them and scribbling them over again. The start of interleague play against the Houston Astros robbed Hargrove's red-hot lineup of a designated hitter, and with everyone hitting so well, he had a hard time sitting anyone. Ultimately, Hargrove decided to stick with Luis Matos in center field, leaving his regular DH, David Segui, on the bench.
