In terms of baseball history, Jay Bell is probably better known for his time with the Pittsburgh Pirates where he was an All Star in 1993, but it was in Arizona (where he was an All Star in 1999) where he would win the World Series.

In Arizona, Bell wasn’t the same defensive presence that he was in years previous but he still had decent offensive skills.  Bell’s power numbers skyrocketed with Arizona as in his All Star year he belted 38 Home Runs, a far higher number than the 21 he had two years previous. (Hmmmm…)   Regardless, Bell had 91 Home Runs as a Diamondback, which certainly helped Arizona during his tenure.
