BBM 2012 IS COMING SOON
We are finishing mowing the lawns and smoothing the dirt for the 2012 BBM Season. This season, our 22nd, promises to be our best ever. For the first time, users will be able to play Baseball Manager through Facebook. That's right. In 2012, Lightning Baseball Manager will be available for free
as a Facebook app. Like BBM on Facebook and let all your Facebook (and baseball) friends know they can play BBM on Facebook.
We've lowered the Express League enrollment fee to just $7.99! Another great reason for your family and friends to play BBM. We have expanded the league types in 2012 and are giving users their choice of how to play BBM. With multiple price points everyone can play. Which leads us to.....
Lastly, we also are excited about our new prizes for 2012. Say so long to the pennants, t-shirts and baseballs of years past. For 2012, we will be offering cash prizes to league winners in qualified leagues. Winners will either get a free entry in a BBM League in 2013 or cash depending on what league they enroll in. Check the enrollment
page, the prizes
page, and importantly, the terms and conditions for full details.
We are on track to open enrollments in mid-February.

BBM AT THE PARK 2012 IN FLORIDA!
After a successful showing in San Diego in 2011, BBM/Pinetar is moving East. BBM/Pinetar's annual gathering will be in Florida and we will be attending a Marlins' game at their new stadium.
For all the details, click here
or go to the DC and see the BBM at the Park 2012 in Florida clubhouse. This is a great weekend to meet friends we may only know online, talk baseball, and most importantly, talk BBM.
We know that the best baseball fans and the most knowledgeable ones hang out on the DC from morning to night. Some baseball fans do not make it to the DC and we want to find them. That is why we have set up a few blogs (some being authored now by Coach Art and Obie with others to come). This is a way for users to find us and talk about baseball and eventually bring more players into the BBM family. Feel free to check them out, comment where you see appropriate and follow them. And, if any of you want to take a more active role in any of these blogs please let me know. Post soon. Because many of these posts are now linked back to the BBM Home Page. If you post then your post too may appear one day on the BBM Home Page
Our blogs are:
All the best,
Commissioner Richard Pagliaro
