                The BBA announced it is now accepting Fall registration for Fall Baseball.  BBA President Don Gresh said "this is a very unique situation for us right now....We're announcing and accepting Fall registration, but one aspect of Spring Baseball isn't over yet and won't be for at least another week, if not longer.  As excited as we are about playing in the World Series, it's hard to believe that the two seasons are practically overlapping.  This has never happened before.   Most of the WS players will be moving up to O-Zone, so it will give them a chance to learn a new style of baseball before next spring.   I strongly suspect they will need at least a mental break, if not a physical one also.  This exactly why we have Fall baseball....So players can learn the next level of baseball in a very fun, and open atmopsphere, without the pressures of the regular baseball season."
