The 2002 season of the Bull Baseball League was the 8th season played since the Bull League began its modern era in 1995. This was the first season where the DH rule was introduced for both the American Eagle League (AEL) and the Lake League (LL).

The Bull Cup Championship Series was won by the Hamilton Industrials, in their first appearance in the playoff finals. They swept the San Diego Seagulls, who were also making their first finals appearance, 3-0 in the best-of-five championship round.
