Probation For Belle?

By Compiled From Wire Services

Albert Belle probably will get at most one year’s probation if major league officials determine he bet only on sports other than baseball.

Baseball’s security head is investigating Belle’s testimony that he gambled on pro football, college basketball and golf games with friends, a high-ranking baseball official said on the condition he not be identified.

Several baseball officials likened the situation to that of Lenny Dykstra. The Philadelphia outfielder was placed on probation for one year by then-commissioner Fay Vincent in 1991 after testifying about taking part in high-stakes poker games.

Tom Goodwin, who hit .282 last season and stole 66 bases, lost his bid to make $1,795,000 and was awarded the Royals’ offer of $1.05 million by an arbitrator.
