Houston Astros legend Craig Biggio missed making the baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday by 39 votes. Houston Texans star J.J. Watt was not happy about Biggio’s exclusion, and he showed it by wearing a Biggio jersey to his press conference.
“I’m disappointed he didn’t make the Hall of Fame,” Watt said. “He was a great, great player.”
Biggio was already in the major leagues for a year when Watt was born in Wisconsin. But he likely saw more than enough of Biggio for the years the Milwaukee Brewers and Houston Astros were both in the National League’s Central Division.
Watt has plenty on his plate as he prepares for his team to rematch with the New England Patriots for the divisional playoffs. It was pretty impressive of him to stand up for Biggio.
