Player Profile: Terry Bell

I have one card of Terry Bell, from 1989 Star.

Playing career: Catcher Terry Bell played in eight games for the 1986 Royals, going 0-3 with 2 walks. He had one at bat for the 1987 Braves and struck out.

Where he is now: With his wife LeAnn, invented the “Coach’s Seat”, a special seat designed to help athletes and others reduce knee and back strain, which is now used by Olympic teams. LeAnn Bell later wrote a book on the experience of inventing called Make Your Idea Happen. He was a longtime catching coach at the University of Dayton but appears to have recently left.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Terry Bel, between Terry Bellefleur Dies, referring to a character on the TV show True Blood, and Terry Belton JP Morgan, the bank’s Head of Fixed Income Strategy. The first entry when you google Terry Bell is not the ballplayer but the President of CTG Lighting Design Studio.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Albert Belle.
