Did Bagwell really hit for that much more power than expected by his minor league stats? I remember that he was stupidly traded from the Red Sox to the Astros after a season at AA where he had few homers but a lot of doubles. The thing was, that park was a terrible park for homers. But, supposedly, the minor league coaches could all see that Bagwell was going to be a fantastic hitter. Only Sox GM Lou Gorman didn't realize it.
Bagwell had 6 homers in 710 at bats in the minors when he was traded
Kirby Puckett's 1982-83 minor league HR's : 3,9
Kirby Puckett's 1984-86 ML HR's - 0,4, 31.
