For whom the Bell tolls…

I have to give kudos to Trevor Bell, the Angels prospect now back in the Midwest League afterBell follow through.jpg being sent down from Rancho Cucamonga recently. He clearly has not let the demotion affect his sense of responsibility

He started on Tuesday afternoon for the Kernals and agreed to donate $100 for every strikeout he had in the start to local flood relief efforts in Cedar Rapids, one of the areas worst hit by the flooding in the Midwest. He struck out seven, so he’ll donate $700 to the relief effort. Bell spent the 2007 season in Cedar Rapids, so he clearly has a connection with the community.

Stay tuned for a lot more here, and on the site in general, on ways to help out in the relief effort, as the region is going to need plenty of assistance in the coming weeks, months, years. Here’s hoping more players get directly involved on their own like Bell has.
