  • Darien Catches the Big One!
    Darien Blue Wave GM Lee Scholtz busted open the piggy bank and shattered the BDBL record for salary, signing free agent Mike Trout to a whopping $26.5 million salary with a guaranteed three-year contract of $79.5 million. The previous record was set back in 2009, when C.C. Sabathia was signed at a salary of $22 million by the Los Altos Undertakers.
  • Draft Day, 2021!
    The Myrtle Beach Hitmen officially kicked off the 2021 draft season by selecting 17-year-old prep outfielder Elijah Green with the first pick of the farm draft. The Hitmen loved the draft pool so much this year, they traded for the second pick as well, using that slot to select high school senior Jordan Lawlar. Day One of the auction has already resulted in a record-tying bid of $22 million for Mike Trout.
  • Hot Stove on Fire!
    A lot of big names traded places this winter during the BDBL's Hot Stove Season. Chicago and Los Altos traded young superstars, with Fernando Tatis, Jr. heading to Chicago and Shane Bieber and Eloy Jimenez joining Los Altos. South Loop added Freddie Freeman, Tim Anderson, and Madison Bumgarner. Joplin welcomed Josh Donaldson and Luis Severino. Allentown snagged Matt Olson and an entire bullpen. Cleveland landed Zack Greinke and Ketel Marte. And the newly-named Highland Freedom added Manny Machado.
  • The BDBL Has Been Slymed!
    Bob Sylvester and the Southern Cal Slyme are our new BDBL Champions of the World! The Slyme defeated the tough-as-nails Akron Ryche in six games in the BDBL World Series, winning the last two games after splitting the first four. This is Sylvester's second BDBL championship, which comes seven years after his first. He is only the fourth person in league history to win more than one title.
