I have spoken to people who have seen both, some say one some say the other. I did see Buddy Bell, and I've heard some say he was in that class, but I don't think so. Bell was great, but Rolen was in a class of his own.
I saw Bell as a Red, but I've heard he was in another world prior to his stint with the Reds.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
