George Bell

George BellBell was part of a talented triumvirate in the Blue Jays outfield in the 1980s, along with center fielder Lloyd Moseby and right fielder Jesse Barfield. The three helped Toronto finally become respectable in their second decade of existence.

Bell is best known for two things: he won a controversial Most Valuable Player award in 1987 (edging Alan Trammell of the Tigers) and he was traded from the Cubs to the White Sox for Sammy Sosa in the early 1990s. Sosa went on to hit 545 home runs for the Cubs after the deal, while Bell hit 38 as a designated hitter for the ChiSox and then retired.
