CINCINNATI (AP) David Bell buttoned his Reds jersey with the No. 25, the same one worn by his grandfather and his father. Buddy Bell stood in the back of the room, watching the scene as a proud papa. In the front row was young Gus Bell, named for the grandfather who was a star in Cincinnati.
The Reds reached into their family roots for their next manager, one who is expected to help lead the club out of its rebuilding doldrums.
