Retiring Houston Astros star Craig Biggio wins Roberto Clemente


^
DENVER (AP) _ Craig Biggio capped his sweat-stained career with
one more cherished honor.
The longtime Houston Astros star won the 2007 Roberto Clemente
Award. That goes annually to a major league player who combines
community service with excellence on the field.
Biggio received the award Saturday in a ceremony at Coors Field
before Game 3 of the World Series between the Boston Red Sox and
Colorado Rockies.
The 41-year-old second baseman retired after this season, his
20th in the major leagues all with Houston. He became the 27th
player to reach 3,000 hits on June 28th.
