  • Halfway There
    There was little movement in the standings in Chapter Three, but some big trades could change that. The Great Lakes Sphinx greatly upgraded their starting rotation, adding Carlos Carrasco and Jeff Samardzija. But the biggest impact was the acquisition of Cy Young-caliber ace Jose Fernandez by the St. Louis Apostles. The Los Altos Undertakers led the way with 19 wins in Chapter Three, followed by Salem (17), New Milford (16), and St. Louis (16).
  • Two in the Books
    Chapter Two featured four 20-win teams: St. Louis (23), New Milford (20), Los Altos (20), and Great Lakes (20). The Apostles and Sphinx captured first place, and the Charlotte Mustangs managed to hang on to their lead despite a 14-14 chapter. The firesale in Bear Country began, while the firesales in Chicago and Niagara have been put on pause.
  • One Done
    Chapter One of the 2017 season officially ended on Wednesday. The New Milford Blazers (22-6), Salem Cowtippers (20-8), and Los Altos Undertakers (20-8) led the way in the first chapter, and the Granite State Lightning (8-20) and Western Kansas Buffaloes (8-20) took up the rear. The biggest surprises of the chapter were the first-place standings of the Niagara Locks and Charlotte Mustangs, both of whom went 17-11.
  • Splitsville
    After a one-year hiatus, the Salem Cowtippers and New Milford Blazers resumed their long-standing BDBL tradition by playing the first series of the season. Salem's bullpen blew a lead in the first game, and New Milford's Masahiro Tanaka shut down the Salem offense in Game Two, giving New Milford a 2-0 start to the season. The Cowtippers then rallied and won the final two games to earn the split. It is the first time since 2012 that the Blazers did not win the Opening Day Series.
