Summary

"The only one I ever saw come close to [Frank Robinson] was this kid Bagwell. Boy, is he aggressive ... boy, can he swing that bat. ... I want to meet him someday because I admire him." — Ted Williams

"You get ball players from Texas, California, Florida or one or all of the Caribbean islands. You don't get them from Connecticut." So wrote Jim Murray, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist about Jeff Bagwell on May 12, 1994.
