David Michael Bell (born September 14, 1972 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is a former Major League Baseball third baseman who is currently the manager of the Double-A Carolina Mudcats. A member of one of the major leagues' three-generation families, he is the brother of Mike Bell, the son of Buddy Bell, and the grandson of Gus Bell.
Bell scored the 2002 NLCS winning run for the San Francisco Giants from second on Kenny Lofton's single. Bell was the runner bearing down on home plate in Game 5 of the 2002 World Series when J.T. Snow lifted 3 year old batboy Darren Baker out of harm's way. Near the end of the season, he won the 2002 Willie Mac Award for his spirit and leadership - as voted on by his teammates and coaching staff..
Bell was traded from the Philadelphia Phillies to the Milwaukee Brewers on July 28, 2006, in a deal that swapped him for minor league pitcher Wilfrido Laureano. The Brewers chose not to re-sign Bell after the 2006 season, and he became a free agent.
