THE BLEACHER BUMS LEAGUE

1996 Season Recap

The 1996 season was played under the name of another league. I have renamed it to the BBL in order to erase any memory of the ousted commissioner of the prior league. The 1996 season was played from February, 1998 to July, 1998. Here is a brief synopsis of the '96 season.

Playoff Results

In the divisional series, the Mets beat the Padres and the Braves forfeited their series, due to owner refusal to participate, to the Rangers.

The New York Mets, let by Mike Sharron were the league champion, defeating Texas 4-3, and bringing a verrry long season to a close.
