Player Biography
“Going from first to home, Jesse Owens wouldn’t have beaten ‘Cool Papa’ Bell,” said former Negro Leagues star Buck O’Neil. “[He] was the fastest man I’ve ever seen.” Legendary speed and a sharp batting eye made James “Cool Papa” Bell a top run producer in the Negro leagues. His .316 career batting average made him a devastating leadoff hitter, and he was an excellent defensive centerfielder. Bell played from 1922 to 1950, and served as a player-manager the last four years of his career. His playing style and speed epitomized the “inside baseball” style of the Negro Leagues.
