Jeff Bagwell Was Paid to Attend Darren Rovell’s 1991 Bar Mitzvah


New York Giants’ Prince Amukamara made headlines for attending a young Bro’s Bar Mitzvah over the weekend. ESPN’s sports business reporter Darren Rovell took the opportunity to teach us about the seedy underbelly of such joyous occasions where parents will pay celebrities top dollar to attend as their boy becomes a man.

Rovell dutifully informed us former Major League Baseball star Jeff Bagwell was a paid attendee at his own 1991 Bar Mitzvah.

He offered this delightful photographic proof and claimed the fee was less than $500.

I honestly wonder if Bagwell could get that much for stopping in now.

There’s really only one way to find out. Make it happen, well-to-do 12-year olds.
