Father-Son Combo on Opposite Sides of Chicago Rivalry

In recent interleague play, the cross-town rival Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs squared off. On the Cubs bench was David Bell, the third-base coach for the Cubs. On the White Sox side, his father, Buddy Bell, is the Assistant GM for the White Sox. They are a family steeped in baseball tradition, one of only four occurrences of a three-generation family in baseball. Buddy’s father, Gus, was a former major leaguer in the 1950s and 1960s. Buddy had two other sons, Mike and Ricky, who also played professional baseball.
