The 41-year-old Biggio retired last season after playing his entire 20-year career in Houston. Last June, he became the 27th player to reach 3,000 hits and retired as the Astros' leader in games, at-bats, hits, doubles and total bases.
``I've already moved on to the next chapter of my life,'' Biggio said Monday. ``I'm excited to see how the other aspects of the game work.''
He'll work as a special assistant to the general manager, helping coach young players as well as assisting the Astros on the business side. He'll split time between the Astros and St. Thomas High School, where he's working as an assistant baseball coach. His oldest son, Conor, plays for the team.
