April 7: Final Final Update

Given the surge of player moves expected before Opening Day, we are recommending that private leagues delay their drafts until the weekend of April 8/9 in order to have the best information. For those who take our suggestion, there will be a final update of the BABS database, master spreadsheet and FISH List on Opening Day, April 7.

In-Season: While the primary BABS content ends on Opening Day, there will be several database updates during the season.
