Born in LaSalle, Ontario, Craig attended and pitched for the University of Detroit. Craig was signed as an amateur free agent by the Detroit Tigers in 1963; then, before the 1964 season began, he was selected off waivers by the Senators. After spending most of 1964 in the minor leagues, Craig made his major league debut on September 6, 1964. He would make just five more big league appearances over the rest of 1964 and the following two seasons. He lost all three of his MLB decisions. In 18 innings pitched, he permitted 28 hits, 13 bases on balls, and 23 earned runs, with three strikeouts. His career ERA was 11.50. A good-hitting pitcher in the minor leagues, he also collected two hits in three MLB at bats (.667). His final year in pro ball was 1967.
