Jeff Bagwell is making the transition from Houston Astros player to goodwill ambassador for the team. That means a lot of autographs and photos.
You’d have to search long and hard to find anyone in baseball with a bad word to say about Jeff Bagwell. The popular first baseman was one of the game’s greats during much of a 15-year career centered in the 1990s.
He played his entire career in Houston and is as beloved as they come. He’s now working for the club as sort of an ambassador and the kids at one Texas school were in awe–and ready to snare a signature– when he showed up on Monday.
