1993 Studio Derek Bell

Hobby is fishing: Bell lived on a 58-foot yacht when he joined the Mets in 2000, and would often fish from the yacht.

Favorite sports announcer is Chris Berman: Bell did not get a Chris Berman nickname.

Favorite player as a kid was Dwight Gooden: Bell was best friends with Gooden’s nephew Gary Sheffield growing up, and referred to Dr. K as his “big brother”.

Most prized possession is his World Series ring: Bell put it up for auction on eBay in 2009, but pulled it when it did not reach the $17,000 buy-it-now price.

Pet peeve is Kool Aid without sugar: Doesn’t sound appealing.

Where he is now: Bell was arrested for drug use a couple of times in the late 2000s. Not sure what he is doing now.

  1. Derek didn't have a Berman name, but George/Jorge Bell had two - Maybe Derek could borrow "Liberty" Bell?
