He tailed off to .262 in 1938 and then on May 13, 1939 was dealt to the Detroit Tigers along with Bobo Newsom, Red Kress and Jim Walkup in exchange for Vern Kennedy, Chet Laabs, Mark Christman and three other players. The Tigers traded him to Cleveland on Jan. 20, 1940 for Bruce Campbell. Bell completed his career with the Indians in 1941, compiling a .292 lifetime average. (bio by: Ron Coons)
