CLEVELAND (AP) - Albert Belle will flex his muscles for the Indians one more time.
The club is honoring Belle, once the most menacing hitter in baseball, with a bobblehead night promotion on June 1 against Tampa Bay. The bobblehead of Belle is of him flexing his right arm and pointing at his biceps - the pose he famously struck in the 1995 playoffs against Boston. In that series, Red Sox manager Kevin Kennedy asked the umpires to check Belle's bat, believing it was corked.
After Belle was cleared, he flexed and pointed at his biceps while yelling at Kennedy from Cleveland's dugout.
Belle had been estranged from the Indians for many years. He visited the club at spring training last year and in Cleveland, and the Indians are hoping to continue their relationship with him. Belle hit 242 homers in eight seasons with Cleveland.
