Player Profile: Eric Bell

I have ten cards of Eric Bell. This one is from 1987 Fleer Update.

Playing career: Eric Bell pitched six seasons in the major leagues for the Orioles, Indians and Astros. His one full major league season was 1987, when he went 10-13 with a 5.45 ERA in 29 starts for Baltimore. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: The owner of Bell Sports Gear, he is also the Arizona Tournament Director for USSSA.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Eric Bel, between Eric Belanger, a hockey player, and Eric Bellinger I Don’t Want Her, referring to a singer and song. The first entry when you google Eric Bell is not the ballplayer but the guitarist for Thin Lizzy.

Coming up next: The next profile will be George Bell.
