Dominican Baseball Card #20: Juan Bell

Dominican Baseball Card #20 is a 1990 Topps #724 of Juan Bell.  One of those super boring early nineties baseball cards.  See all the Dominican Baseball Cards.
Perhaps Juan's greatest claim to fame is that he is George Bell's brother.  Juan had a fairly uneventful career.  He spent five seasons in the big leagues, and parts of 12 seasons in the minor leagues.  Juan had a career .212 batting average in the majors.  The Brewers some how payed him $1.82 million as a free agent in 1993 even though he had a career big league average under .200 in two previous seasons and around 300 at bats.  He spent his final season in the AAA Mexican league in 2000.

The Dominican Baseball Guy could not find anything on Juan Bell since he retired in 2000.  He is probably hanging with George somewhere in the Dominican Republic, but leave a comment if you remember Juan or you have any information on him today.  He is from San Pedro de Macoris.
