Teddy "Beanbag" Bagwell is a baseball player that was 2 hit-by-pitches away from the all-time record. After getting hit once more, though, a stretcher was required and Bagwell announced to the crowd, "Today I consider myself the stupidest man on the face of the Earth. I quit baseball."
Eric had bought a signed photo of Bagwell for $200 shortly before his retirement, in hopes that the value would skyrocket when Bagwell surpassed the all-time hit-by-pitch record. When Bagwell announced his impromptu retirement, Eric was greatly disheartened.
The pitcher that hit Bagwell for the last time was named Darren Lee, and he was left-handed.
Before his final at-bat, Bagwell had to be led to the plate because he'd been hit in the head so many times his eyes were swollen shut.
Although Andrew Margarian voices Bagwell, the man in the photo Eric buys is probably a different person.
