“There is the potential for a very strong class either next year or in the near future,” Horn said. “For us, we have to stay true to our mission, which is to focus on what is in front of us this year.”
As a Houston native, Horn said he is looking forward to Biggio’s eventually induction. No one has ever been inducted as a Houston Astro.
“My loyalties are split since I worked for the Texas Rangers, which is now a competitor franchise in the American League, and now I represent all 30 franchises,” Horne said, “but I do have a picture on my wall of Craig getting his 3,000th hit, and I have a good relationship with him. I think, historically speaking, he is in very good position to be inducted.”
