HOUSTON – Ask a player if they ever thought they would hit 1,000 or 2,000 career points?

Most of the time the answer is no.

There are a few marks along the way the players, coaches and teams recognize until the player eventually hits that career mark.

In the past few weeks players across the city of Houston have reached career marks.

Allie Byrd – Kingwood Park

Allie Byrd has been a double double machine her entire career at Kingwood Park.

On December 20 against Willis, Byrd surpassed the mark of 2,000 points, becoming the all-time leader in school history in points.

Before Kingwood Park's game on January 25, Byrd was honored with a commemorative basketball. Following that game, Byrd officially had 2,170 points and 1,649 rebounds in her career.

Byrd is committed to play soccer at North Texas.

Carlos Beltran missed out on his first opportunity to be inducted in the Hall of Fame this week, and we discuss how his involvement in the 2017 sign-stealing scandal may have played a role.

Plus, are we seeing a turning of the tide with national baseball writers and their opinion of the Houston Astros?

Bob Nightengale wrote this about Carlos Beltran and the Hall of Fame recently:

But we’re really going to ignore all of that and admonish him for participating in the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal.
Really?
Are we going to do the same with everyone who played for the Red Sox and Yankees during those years, too, when they were fined and disciplined for the illegal use of Apple Watches and dugout phones to relay signs?
Should we hold that against future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander, who obviously didn’t benefit from the sign stealing as a pitcher, but didn’t tell his teammates to stop it?
Enough already.
We’re not talking about performance-enhancing drugs here. Sign stealing has been going on for the past 100 years. There are teams who have used hidden cameras for years. Team employees flashed signs from outfield seats and scoreboards.

Check out the video above as we break it all down.
