But because those Indians didn't win it all, Belle believes that lineup gets overlooked.
"We probably would've gotten way more credit had we won the World Series that year," he said. "We were the Cinderella team. All of America embraced us and I think everybody in Cleveland had some kind of Indians jersey or hat or something on. It was a nice run. We did a phenomenal job. I just wish we could've all stayed together to get a chance to try to bring one home. We never did."
As Belle and Co. strolled and laughed their way down memory lane, Jason Bere, the former pitcher who now works as a special assistant for the Indians, walked outside and cringed at the sight of Belle, Lofton and Baerga together again.
"Didn't you guys wear me out enough back then," Bere said with a laugh.
Bere then couldn't resist doing his own imitation of Belle's swing before paying the former Indians a huge compliment.
"I never saw the '27 Yankees play," he said. "But the '95 Indians, whoa."
Belle bolted Cleveland as a free agent after the 1996 season, signing a five-year, $56 million deal with the Chicago White Sox. Four years later, after taking a swing in camp with the Orioles, he was done.
"When I got hurt in 2000 and couldn't play in 2001, I was pretty devastated," said Belle, who finished with 381 homers, 1,239 RBIs and a career .295 average. "I didn't watch any highlights or baseball until Game 7 when the Diamondbacks beat the Yankees. That was it. I watch highlights every now and then. I keep up with it now and watch a few games here and there."
After leaving Cleveland, Belle was vilified by Indians fans, who showered him with fake money in left field when he returned to Jacobs Field for the first time.
He hasn't been back since, but would like to return one day.
Time has changed him, healed him.
This late-winter reunion made him nostalgic, but not regretful.
"I look back and I wouldn't trade anything in the world to do it all over again," he said. "There's some great memories and it's good to see the guys. I had a nice career. I wish it had been longer, but I'm happy with the way things worked out."
