William Mallory Bagwell

M, b. 24 February 1895, d. 5 October 1976
William Mallory Bagwell, aka "Big Bill"
Played professional baseball for the Boston Braves
and for the Philadephia Athletics in the World Series in 1925
     William Mallory Bagwell was also known as William Mallary Bagwell.1 William Mallory Bagwell was also known as Big Bill Bagwell. He was born on 24 February 1895 in Choudrant, Lincoln Parish, Louisiana.1 He was the son of Andrew Jackson Bagwell Jr. and Emma Harriett Gentry. William Mallory Bagwell married Carrie Velma O'Neal after 1910.2 Bagwell was born in Choudrant, Louisiana, in 1895. He started his professional baseball career in 1920 in the Louisiana State League. That season, he had a .344 batting average in 33 games. Bagwell then spent two years in the Southwestern League. In 1921, he batted .357, and in 1922, he batted .402 and led the league in batting average, hits (217), and total bases (323).

In October 1922, Bagwell was drafted by the Boston Braves in the rule 5 draft. He played for both the Braves and the Eastern League's Worcester Panthers in 1923. With Boston, he batted .290 in 56 games; with Worcester, he batted .453 in 49 games to lead the Eastern League in batting average.

The Braves released Bagwell in April 1924. He spent one season in the Texas League, batted .367 with a career-high 37 home runs there, and then returned to the majors in 1925 with the Philadelphia Athletics. Bagwell spent nearly the whole season as a pinch hitter for Philadelphia. He appeared in 36 games and went 15 for 50 (.300) at the plate.

In 1926, Bagwell played for the Pacific Coast League's Portland Beavers. He batted .391 to lead his league in batting average for the third time. In 1927, however, Bagwell's average fell to .292 for Portland. He bounced around various minor leagues for the next few years before retiring from professional baseball after the 1930 season.

In his 11-year career, Bagwell hit .294 in the major leagues and .360 in the minor leagues. He died in Choudrant, Louisiana, in 1976.
He played left field and batted and threw left-handed.


Note:
The Boston Braves was one of the National League's two remaining charter franchises (the other being the Chicago Cubs), the club was founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1871 as the Boston Red Stockings (not to be confused with the American League's Boston Red Sox or the NL Central's Cincinnati Reds). The team moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1953 and became the Milwaukee Braves. In 1966, the team moved to Atlanta. The team's tenure in Atlanta is famous for Hank Aaron's breaking of the career home run record in 1974; the new record stood until 2007.

William Mallory Bagwell died on 5 October 1976 in West Monroe, Louisiana, at age 81.1 He was buried at Fellowship Cemetery, Dubach, Lincoln Parish, Louisiana.1
