He may be small, he may not hit 40 home runs, but Ichiro Suzuki is one of the best baseball players that have ever existed. How can I prove that? He has hit over .300 in every season he has played in the MLB. Ty Cobb, Tony Gwynn, Pete Rose, and Babe Ruth were all great hitters, but their average was below .300 at least once in their career.
On October 22, 1973, Ichiro Suzuki was born in Kasugai, Japan. The first time that he touched a baseball was at three years of age, when his father had gotten More >

Peyton Williams Manning was born on March 24, 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana. His father was former NFL quarterback Archie Manning. Peyton became the starting quarterback at Newman High School in New Orleans taking over from his brother More >

When you think of Astros all time greats, a couple named come to mind-Bagwell, Ryan…Then you have Craig Biggio. He is on of the best players to ever play, and is a first ballot HOFer. He has spent his entire 20-year career with the Houston Astros, the team that drafted him 22nd in the 1987 draft.
Craig Biggio graduated from Kings Park High School in Long Island, New York. Oddly enough, in 1983, Biggio was awarded the Hanson award, for being the best football player in Suffolk County. However, his passion lay with baseball, so he turned down football More >
