Outfielder George Bell of the Toronto Blue Jays has been suspended for the second time this season for bumping an umpire, the American League said today. The latest incident, involving umpire Tim Welke during a June 24 game won by Oakland 7-1, resulted in Bell's receiving a three-day suspension. The suspension was to have begun Wednesday night, but the league said Bell has appealed, delaying the penalty until a hearing is conducted. After making physical contact with Welke during an argument over a called third strike in the seventh inning, Bell was ejected.

The Yankees are off to their best start at home since 1951, when they won their first 11 games at Yankee Stadium.
