HOUSTON -- Houston's Craig Biggio announced today that he's retiring at the end of this season -- his 20th major league campaign.

The 41-year-old Biggio is batting .247 with 24 doubles, five
homers and 31 R-B-Is. He started the day with three-thousand-and-14
hits. That's six shy of tying Rafael Palmeiro for 23rd place on the
career list.

Biggio has played his entire major league career with the
Astros, becoming the longest-tenured player in franchise history.
He's the only player in major league history with 600 doubles, 250
homers, three-thousand hits and 400 steals.
