Community Outreach Executive
Jeff Bagwell, who was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2017 and the Astros Hall of Fame in 2019, was one of the greatest sluggers of all-time. In his current role as a community outreach executive, Jeff is an active member of the Houston Community, making public appearances and acting as an ambassador for the organization.
Over his 15 years with the Astros, Bagwell hit .297 with 488 doubles, 32 triples, 449 home runs, 1,529 RBI with a .948 OPS (.408 OBP/.540 SLG) in 2,150 games. The four-time All-Star and three-time Silver Slugger Award winner was the first player in Astros history to be named the MVP of his league (1994), as well as the first player to receive a Rookie of the Year Award (1991). The franchise leader in homers, walks and RBI, Bagwell was also known for his elite defense at first base, winning a Rawlings Gold Glove Award in 1994. He is the only first baseman in MLB history to record a 30-homer, 30-stolen base season, which he accomplished twice (1997, 1999). Under Bagwell’s leadership, the Astros won four division titles and made the playoffs six times, reaching the National League Championship Series in 2004 and the World Series in 2005.
Bagwell serves as a guest TV commentator for select Astros games and will join the AT&T SportsNet broadcast crew periodically throughout the 2020 season.
