  • Draft Season Underway
    Switch-hitting catching prospect for the Dodgers, Keibert Ruiz, officially became the first player selected in the 2017 draft when the Granite State Lightning became the first team in history to forgo the #1 overall pick in the Farm Draft, handing that first overall selection to the Myrtle Beach Hitmen. Ruiz was followed by prep star Ethan Hankins, San Diego flamethrower Michel Baez, and yet another Milwaukee Brewers prospect (Monte Harrison) added to the mini-Brewers farm system of the Akron Ryche.
  • Winter Trading Season Ends
    A somewhat subdued winter trading season officially came to an end Thursday night with eight trades announced just prior to the 10:00pm deadline. Among the biggest trade acquisitions of the winter were Chris Sale (to Flagstaff), Justin Verlander (to Joplin), Justin Turner (to KC), Dallas Keuchel (also to KC), and Corey Kluber (to Kansas.) Next up on the BDBL docket: Cutdown Day.
  • Three-Peat
    The Los Altos Undertakers have done it again. With a sweep of the Kansas Law Dogs in the BDBL World Series, Los Altos becomes the first franchise since the Stamford Zoots to win three championships in a row. It is the fourth championship for Jeff Paulson, which ties him with Marazita and DiStefano as managers, and is one fewer trophy than DiStefano won as a GM. It is only the second time in league history that the winning team swept the World Series.
  • For All the Marbles
    Los Altos defeated the New Milford Blazers in the OLCS (prompting Blazers owner Anthony Peburn to quit.) This gives the Undertakers a chance to become the first team since the 1999-2001 Stamford Zoots to win three BDBL championships in a row. To get there, they will have to get past the Kansas Law Dogs, who defeated the Charlotte Mustangs in a hard-fought ELCS six-game series.
