Bagwell remains classy

During the majority of their careers, Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio formed the right side of the Houston Astros infield and played the role of clubhouse cops.

The Astros retired Bagwell's No. 5 on Sunday and the former slugger took time to thank the fans, but something struck me as odd.

The shaggy-haired, bum-shouldered Bagwell made it a point to compliment the fans on their maturation and the way they helped turn Houston into a "baseball city."

Bagwell was an underappreciated talent during his time on the diamond, but remained classy. He showed more of the same in his speech Sunday.
