Fall BABL Opening Day was Amazing

 I am looking forward to another great season! Scoring (football-like) was plentiful this weekend, with touchdowns/field goals/extra points, and lots of hitting. However, there were too many walks this weekend! This week, PITCHING will be the FOCUS at clinics so we can have faster-paced games and get the defense more involved. Please see below for game recaps, team standings, & photos!
