06/29/2005: Dammit, I shoulda listened this afternoon...
Rockies pitcher Byung-Hyun Kim hit Craig Biggio by a pitch in the 4th inning of the Astros-Rockies game this afternoon. That leaves Biggio in uncontested possession of the modern (i.e., 1900 and after) major league record for a player being hit by pitches.
Biggio now takes aim at Hughie Jenkins's all time record of being hit by 287 pitches. 19 to tie; 20 to break.
