Derek Bell’s Sea Of Love

In the year 2000, a female friend of mine went to a Mets game, with seats behind the dugout. She showed up early, for batting practice. Or maybe it was a friend of that friend and she was working a summer job for the Yankees and it was a Subway Series and she was on the field before gametime. I’m pretty sure it was the latter, but it doesn’t matter, because the next part’s for sure. During the game, a batboy came up to her and passed her a piece of paper with a phone number and a note:

“Derek Bell wants to know if you’d like to take a ride on his yacht.”

Which doesn’t disprove this old story. But on this occasion, Operation Shutdown was shot down.

    Bell’s song every time he came to bat in his Met tenure? “Big Pimpin”

    i was at a game in Fenway Park against the Mets a few years ago (i think it was the one where Carl Everett head-butted the ump) sitting out in the bleachers and some inebriated guy spent the better part of 3 innings yelling “Derek Bell, you’re my daddy!” over and over again. he certainly sounds like a “girl in every port” kind of sailor. and “take a ride on his yacht” certainly sounds like a euphemism.
