David Michael Bell (born September 14, 1972 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is a former Major League Baseball third baseman. A member of one of the major leagues' three-generation families, he is the brother of Mike Bell, the son of Buddy Bell, and the grandson of Gus Bell.

As a junior at Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Bell led his team to a state baseball title.

On April 15, 1998, he hit the first inside-the-park home run in Jacobs Field history, and the first for the Indians since 1989.

Bell scored the 2002 NLCS winning run for the San Francisco Giants from second on Kenny Lofton's single. Bell was the runner bearing down on home plate in Game 5 of the 2002 World Series when J.T. Snow lifted 3 year old batboy Darren Baker out of harm's way.

Bell won the 2002 Willie Mac Award for his spirit and leadership.

Bell made Major League history on June 28, 2004, by joining his grandfather, Gus Bell, as the first grandfather-grandson combination to hit for the cycle.

Bell was traded from the Philadelphia Phillies to the Milwaukee Brewers on July 28, 2006, for minor league pitcher Wilfrido Laureano. The Brewers chose not to re-sign Bell after the 2006 season, and he became a free agent.
