Are you a fan of the Houston Astros? Do you want to know more about the inner workings of the team and how they plan to stay at the top of their game? Then you need to read this blog post about Jeff Bagwell, one of the team’s most trusted advisors and a baseball Hall of Famer.
Bagwell has recently been named the club’s senior advisor to ownership and baseball operations, a title that reflects his importance to the organization. Despite the new role, Bagwell’s responsibilities with the club won’t change much. He will continue to be involved in baseball operations and help the organization be the best it can be.
Part of Bagwell’s duties include finding the right players that fit the organization’s needs, both on the big league and Minor League levels. Bagwell believes the Minor League system is the “heartbeat” of the organization and plans to spend time getting to know every player in the system. By building relationships with the Minor Leaguers, Bagwell hopes to help develop players who can eventually contribute to the big league team.
Bagwell has become a sounding board for owner Jim Crane and new general manager Dana Brown, as the team takes a collaborative approach to baseball operations. Bagwell isn’t afraid to share his opinion, and he believes that if the team spends its money wisely and develops its players, they can continue to win and make Houston a true Astros town.
So the next time you’re watching a game at Minute Maid Park, remember Jeff Bagwell and his important role in making the Houston Astros one of the best teams in baseball.
