SURPRISE, AZ (March 26, 2021) – “The Kansas City Royals join the rest of Major League Baseball to mourn the passing of Minnesota Twins bench coach Mike Bell earlier today. Mike, who was raised in a historic baseball family, touched so many lives, first as a player and then transitioning into Baseball Operations roles prior returning to the field as a coach in 2020. He had friends throughout our sport including many members of our organization and he will be missed by all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Kelly, children Luke, Mikayla and Madeline and his entire family including his father, Buddy, who managed our ball club for three seasons, and brother, David, currently the manager of the Cincinnati Reds.”
