Former Cleveland Indians OF Albert Belle was at the team's spring training complex Tuesday, Feb. 28, reconnecting with members of the 1995 team. He was a controversial figure after leaving in free agency for the Chicago White Sox in 1996. "I thought the fences were already mended," Belle said. "That was a long time ago. That's the thing about free agency. It can create some bad feelings. I would have loved to play with these guys (Sandy Alomar Jr., Carlos Baerga and Kenny Lofton) another five to 10 years. It didn't work out that way. But we've all gone on to have some success."
