A BIG Birthday 🥳

We hope you CAV' a great one!

In the 2016 Major League Baseball draft, Cavan Biggio's journey with the Toronto Blue Jays began when he was selected in the fifth round. Agreeing to a contract with a draft slot bonus of $300,000, he joined the Vancouver Canadians of the Class A-Short Season Northwest League. His standout performance led to an All-Star nod in July. Transitioning to the Lansing Lugnuts of the Class A Midwest League, Biggio showcased his skills, hitting .273 with 26 RBIs and 11 stolen bases in 62 games, displaying impressive plate discipline.
The following year, Biggio continued his development with the Dunedin Blue Jays in the Class A-Advanced Florida State League, posting a .233 batting average with 11 home runs, 60 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases throughout the 2017 season.
2018 marked a significant step forward as Biggio was assigned to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats of the Double-A Eastern League. He not only earned recognition as the Eastern League's Rookie of the Year but also claimed the Most Valuable Player title, demonstrating his growing prowess on the field.
By 2019, Biggio was ready for the Triple-A International League, starting the season with the Buffalo Bisons. Excelling with a .307 batting average and six home runs in his initial 42 games, he caught the attention of the Toronto Blue Jays' management.
On May 24, 2019, Biggio's hard work paid off when he received the call-up to the majors. He made an immediate impact, marking his debut with a hit and a home run two days later. His standout moment of the season came on September 17 when he hit for the cycle against the Baltimore Orioles, cementing his place in Blue Jays history.
Since then, Biggio has been a consistent performer for the Blue Jays, contributing both offensively and defensively. His achievements earned him a contract extension in 2022, further solidifying his role in the team's future plans.
