Brantley Bell shared a funny story about the 2001 World Series.

His dad, Jay, was the main second baseman for the Diamondbacks.

Brantley said the one story he remembers his dad telling the most started a Krispy Kreme.

"They went there at 4 in the morning and there was a reporter there and she asked him if we was at the game," Brantley said. "He said something like, 'It was amazing.' He goes outside and is about to leave and the lady jumps on the hood of the car and begs him not to leave."

Brantley was about six at the time and remembers it well.

"I remember a lot about that game and even a lot before that," he said. "It's something I want to share someday with my kids. If I could make it to the big leagues and they get to experience what I did that would be awesome."

Bell's road to professional baseball might come as soon as this this summer.

He is committed to Ole Miss but if he was drafted high enough and the money was right it is possible he'd forgo college.

"I was told one time (organizations) like to stay in the bloodlines so you are going to get extra looks (from scouts)," he said. "It will get you there but you have to prove yourself because it is a business.

"I am excited to start my professional career this year if it happens. I am not worried about it right now because we are trying to win a state title."
