Surliness and swat went hand-in-fist with this moody slugger, who became notorious for hitting a fan with a thrown ball and spewing profanity at NBC's Hannah Storm during the 1995 World Series. The first player to belt 50 homers and 50 doubles in a season ('95) was also found to be a cheater. His corked bat was the object of a wacky case in 1994 when Indians teammate Jason Grimsley (a noted figure in the Mitchell Report) crawled through a ceiling to retrieve Belle's confiscated lumber from the locked umpire's room in Comiskey Park. In 2006 Belle was accused of stalking a woman in Arizona.
