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.

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
