He played in three world championships in a 32-year career, and beat the famous four-man touring team, Eddie Feigner’s “King and His Court”, 3 – 1. Feigner later called Bagnell the finest Canadian pitcher he had ever encountered, and the only one to beat him. In his career, Bagnell compiled over 1,000 victories, 6,000 strikeouts, 235 shutouts, 54 no-hitters, and 26 perfect games. He carried a .300 lifetime batting average, once struck out 32 batters in one game, and once held the opposition scoreless for a 39-inning stretch.
