  • Races Heating Up
    McGowan Divisin rivals Joplin and Salem both added big impact players at the Chapter Four trading deadline. Joplin added Cody Bellinger and Corey Knebel, while the Cowtippers added Jose Altuve to the lineup. Joplin currently leads the division by four games. The Highland Freedom moved into a tie with the Carolina Saints atop the Wilkie Division. The Griffin Division (where Allentown holds a four-game lead) and both wildcard races remain tight as we head into Chapter Five.
  • Gimme a Break
    Yet another wild and wacky chapter came to an end, and the 2021 season heads into the all-star break. The Cleveland Rocks came out of nowhere to post the league's best record at 18-6. The Eck League once again topped the Ozzies in interleague play. Several big names (Patrick Corbin, Mike Clevinger, Asdrubal Cabrera, Daniel Murphy, Khris Davis) traded uniforms. Three division races are led by a margin of four or fewer games. What on earth does the second half have in store for the BDBL?
  • Topsy-Turvy Chapter Two Ends
    The wildest and craziest chapter in recent league history has come to an end, thankfully. Great Lakes (22-6) added to their league-best record. Joplin (18-10) and Niagara (18-10) practically reversed their Chapter One performances, with the schizophrenic Miners taking over first place in the McGowan Division. A flurry of trades, many involving major impact players, will shake up the pennant races the rest of the way.
  • Chicago Throws Out the Towel
    John Gill did practically everything he could to make 2021 a rebuilding year, but his Chicago Black Sox have refused to go along with that plan. Chicago finished Chapter One with the best record (21-7) in the BDBL, and own the largest lead (7 games) of any division leader. Salem (18-10), Carolina (18-10), Las Vegas (17-11), and Great Lakes (17-11) also had a successful chapter. Allentown, currently one game behind Los Altos in the Griffin Division, made the biggest move of the chapter, adding Chris Sale and Matt Carpenter.
