Please enjoy this story about the time Jeff Bagwell went to Darren Rovell's bar mitzvah
This week, ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell really embraced the concept of "throwback Thursday" and shared a few photos of himself at his bar mitzvah in 1991. What, you may wonder, prompted this particular trip down memory lane? Well, just look at who's standing with him:
Yes, that's Jeff Bagwell, newly minted Hall of Famer and '90s style icon. OK, in '91, he was still working toward the realization of both those goals (nice beige jacket, Jeff), but that didn't mean that little Darren wasn't thrilled. From ESPN.com:
Little Darren was right, and he didn't even have to wait until Bagwell was elected to the Hall of Fame to prove it -- the year of Rovell's bar mitzvah, Bagwell won NL Rookie of the Year. Hopefully, those kids held onto those autographs.
