‘My First Time’ – Jeff Bagwell – April 8, 1991

‘My First Time’ – Jeff Bagwell – April 8, 1991

The setting:  Riverfront Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio.

From Bagwell – “The hairs were standing up on my arms and neck when Lee Greenwood came out there and sang the song about ‘proud to be an American’.  I was proud to be in the major leagues, but it was so much more than that, that day.  I went out there and went 0-for-3, but one of the out was a line-drive to short with the bases loaded off Rob Dibble.  Barry Larkin was standing right behind the bag at second and caught it – I couldn’t believe he had been positioned there.’

The box score – Reds 6, Astros 2.  0-for-3, 1 walk.
