      and baseball technical advisor on the movie "Bang the Drum Slowly",
      died on June 26, 2008, in Westlake, OH.

      The first article below mentions he played for the Minneapolis Millers
      of which we have no record.

          Dell Bethel was recognized as an innovative coach and scout by baseball insiders thoughout the scholastic and professional ranks. He authored a series of instructionals which were translated into Japanese and other languages and remained in print for decades.  He was still actively coaching prospects in the Cleveland area this spring and I was fortunate to spend some time with him at Jack Graney Chapter meetings and around the batting cage. 

          Among his titles:
          Inside Baseball: Tips and Techniques for Coaches and Players, by Dell Bethel
          The Complete Book of Baseball Instruction, by Dell Bethel
          Coaching Winning Baseball, by Dell Bethel
