“Last year, I was searching,” Bell said. “I was swinging more and trying to find something. I don’t think it can be found in the cages. I think it needs to be found between the lines and understanding what’s going on out there. It was a good learning experience, for sure.”
Only a few things remain, Bell said. One, his pregame prayer, something that dates back to the summer of 2013. Either in the clubhouse or on the field — he’s not too specific — Bell never forgets to pray.
