  • Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!
    The newly-enhanced BDBL free agent auction process has officially ended. A total of $295.5 million was spent on the 50 free agents in the auction, the most since 2014, and second-highest total in the past ten years. Bear Country was a big winner, signing five players, including Hyun-Jin Ryu, J.D. Martinez, and Paul Goldschmidt. The Great Lakes Sphinx added Christian Yelich (at $18M) and Mike Minor ($9.5M) among others. Kansas added Jacob deGrom ($17.5M) and Salem added Max Scherzer ($15.5M).
  • The Emperor Returns
    Five-time BDBL champion Tom DiStefano officially returned to the BDBL on December 18th, taking over the franchise formally known as the Flagstaff Outlaws. It was the third change in ownership for the franchise since Greg Newgard stepped down at the end of the 2019 season. DiStefano won four league titles as the owner of the Allentown Ridgebacks from 2001-2013. He then teamed up with Gene Patterson to win title #5 in 2014 before finally stepping down after the 2015 season.
  • They Did It!
    Game Seven. Two outs. Two strikes. Bottom of the 10th inning. Down by three runs. Bases loaded. In this impossible-to-believe scenario, Enrique "Kike" Hernandez hit a walk-off grand slam home run to give the Salem Cowtippers their first BDBL championship in six tries. Yes, that actually happened.
  • Salem vs. Charlotte
    The Salem Cowtippers and Charlotte Mustangs will go head-to-head for all the marbles in the 2019 BDBL World Series. The Cowtippers are 0-5 in their previous attempts to capture the elusive trophy. Tony Chamra of the Mustangs is a perfect one-for-one, as he won the championship 13 years ago at the helm of his previous franchise.
