Luke Bell carries on the family tradition

Luke Bell was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 34th round of the 2019 MLB Draft. He happens to be the son of Mike Bell, who is the vice president of player development for the Diamondbacks.

Besides their father-son relationship, the bloodlines run even deeper in the Bell family. Luke’s grandfather, Buddy Bell, was a major-league player and manager for over 25 years. His great-grandfather, Gus, Bell, was a major league player for 15 years in the 1950s and early 1960s. Luke’s father played only one major-league season in 2000. His uncle, David, is currently manager of the Cincinnati Reds and also played in the majors for 12 seasons.

If Luke were to eventually make the majors, the Bell family would become the first to have four generations play in the MLB.
