We say happy # 65 to Buddy Bell, one of our favorite Texas Rangers.    

Bell broke with the Indians in 1972 and traded to the Rangers after the 1978 season.    He enjoyed some great seasons in Texas, 1979-85:  .293 batting average.  

He came back to Texas in 1989 and retired here.  

Overall, Buddy Bell hit .279 with 2,514 hits in 2,405 games.   He also won 6 Gold Gloves during his time in Texas.    

Just a great player!   His father Gus Bell played major league baseball and hit .281 over 15 seasons.
