It has been a long time since Bob Ford's booming voice over the sound system at Minute Maid Park has mentioned the iconic name Biggio during a starting lineup read.

With the Toronto Blue Jays in town to open a three-game series on Friday, for the first time since 2007 he got the chance to do it again - this time for Hall of Famer Craig Biggio's son Cavan.

"My first at-bat I felt a little emotional just because the announcer's voice I've heard his voice so many times announcing Biggio, so it was pretty cool," Biggio said following a 1-for-4 night.

The similarities between Cavan and his father were eerily close.

"At the end of the day it's Biggio leading off, playing second in Minute Maid Park," Biggio said. "So, overall it's really cool and a great experience for me and my family."

After striking out his first two at-bats against Gerrit Cole, Biggio finally connected with a pitch in the fifth driving it to dead center field and banging it off the wall for his first career double.

As Cavan stood on second, just feet away from where him and his brother Conor rushed out to years ago to be hoisted up by their dad after his 3,000th career hit, the 34,000-plus in attendance gave him an ovation.
