Jeff Bagwell tout

Bob Levey

Fifteen years. 449 home runs. 1529 RBIs. One quad-busting batting stance. As the Houston Astros prepare for their second World Series in franchise history, join us for a look back at the Astro, Jeff Bagwell, who as the lynchpin of the Killer Bs in the '90s, played his way to semi-stardom on the back of the most don't-try-this-at-home plate approach in Major League history. So go ahead and make your jokes, but just remember: Bags is in Cooperstown and you definitely aren't.
