The 2015 Season in the Bull Baseball League was the 21st season to be played since 1995, the beginning of the "Modern Era" of the league.

The season was simulated in July 2016.

During the season, 20 Bull League teams played an 82-game schedule, with three rounds of playoffs following the end of the regular season.

The All Star Game was played at Seattle's Salty Park on July 20, 2016.

The Bull Cup Championship title was won by the Calgary Inferno of the American Eagle League East division. Their regular season record of 51-31 (.622) placed them second in their division behind the Jacksonville Ravens, but tied them with the first place AEL West division team, the Seattle Salts, and ahead of the next best team, the Denver Highlanders, also of the East division, thus they earned a wildcard entry into the playoffs.
