Mike Bell learned baseball from his dad, Buddy, a former Major League player and manager. Mike recalls going to work with his father and hanging out with his big league teammates. Mike’s grandfather, Gus, was also a Major League player from 1950 to 1964. Mike briefly played for the Cincinnati Reds in 2000. His brother, David, played for twelve seasons with six different big league clubs. The Bells are one of only four three-generation families in Major League Baseball history.
Now the director of player development for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Mike is now overseeing players who are trying to get to “The Show”.
