Every time Albert Belle stepped up to the plate during his career, you felt the pitcher’s heartbeat from your own living room. The former MLB outfielder was intense and had his best years with the Cleveland Indians, but also had the opportunity to play for the Chicago White Sox and the Baltimore Orioles.
Aside from being an intimidator, Albert Belle was also very consistent. It seemed like Belle was hitting over 30 homeruns and 100 RBIs every season. Albert Belle was one of the leading sluggers of his time and one of the greatest baseball players that ever ran out onto the field.
Today, Albert Belle decided to surprise the Indians by visiting the team’s baseball camp. At first glance, it was difficult to believe that time could change a person that quickly. The “intimidator” as Belle was mostly known to be during his baseball career was no longer intimidating. Belle’s grayish hair and beard made him almost unnoticeable. Of course, the four-year All-Star kept his smile, which fans never really got to see due to his aggressive personality. Nonetheless, it’s always great to see how MLB players are doing after they have retired. From the looks of it, Albert Belle is doing just fine.
Albert Belle enjoyed the rest of his day joking around with his former teammates, such as Sandy Alomar Jr., Carlos Baerga [who could ever forget this guy’s awkward running style], Mike Hargrove, and Kenny Lofton [Kenny looks like he never changed].
It felt like 1995 all over again.
