Craig Biggio is a Hall of Famer who’s had many memorable moments over the course of his life and career, but Sunday’s events may have been a new high for him.
Biggio was in the stands in Toronto as his son, Cavan, played in his first series at the MLB level. Cavan Biggio got his first MLB hit in his first at-bat on Sunday, then followed it up one plate appearance later with his first MLB home run.
Caven’t you heard?just hit his first BOMB!

Biggio and the family could be seen smiling and applauding in the stands as Cavan rounded the bases in a moment they’ll surely never forget.
Donovan McNabb: I’m a Hall of Famer, better numbers than Troy Aikman
Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has never even been a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but he believes he should already have a bust in Canton. “I am a Hall of Famer. My numbers speak for themselves,” McNabb told TMZ. “My numbers are better than Troy Aikman.” McNabb does, in fact, have better numbers than Aikman: McNabb threw for more yards and more touchdowns, with fewer interceptions. But that’s a bit misleading. For starters, McNabb played in a better passing era than Aikman: In Aikman’s rookie year, 1989, the league average passer rating was 75.6.
The Blue Jays are quickly becoming a haven for players with Hall of Fame dads. In the other instance, however, Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s famous father has beenfor a great reason.
