It's ironic that the only thing Jeff Bagwell didn't do gracefully was hit. His squat, wide-legged stance was a running clubhouse joke ( Astros teammates said he could practice his swing on the john), and the hitch in his stroke would make a high school coach cringe. Those quirks did nothing to hamper his productivity, though, and in his prime Bagwell, a future Hall of Famer who was forced into retirement last week by an arthritic right shoulder, might've been the game's most complete first baseman. A Gold Glove winner and a supremely intelligent base runner, Bagwell, 38, is the only first baseman in history to exceed 400 homers and 200 steals. His decline, accelerated by injury, was swift—he played 39 games in 2005 and none in '06—but for more than a decade he was a rare force even by the inflated standards of the chemically enhanced era. For that he'll always be a hero in Houston, the only city in which he played.
