Bagwell ended his career with 449 home runs, was 1991 NL Rookie of the Year and in the strike-shortened 1994 season hit .368 with 39 homers and 116 RBIs in just 110 games to unanimously capture MVP honors.

From 1996-2001, Bagwell had at least 30 home runs, 100 runs scored and 100 RBIs per season, only the sixth player in major league history to reach those marks in at least six straight years.

Outfielder Tim Raines, catcher Ivan Rodriguez, MLB executive John Schuerholz, and MLB commissioner Bud Selig were also inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday.
