Since you start so much earlier in Spring than us here in northern IL, it makes sense then that we start Fall so much earlier than you. We're already over a week into the season here. And we finish mid-October.
The more north you go, the smaller the break between Spring and Fall. Only about a month and a half since regular season games ended.

Also, fewer thunderstorms in the "fall".I
Even starting in the latter part of September we get a 6-7 week fall season plus a Tournament and still finish before Thanksgiving.
Of course, it could be difficult to play that late in the year "up north".

We started this weekend, (4-8s, 9-12 start Wednesday, and we had to cancel Senior ball for lack of players).
We finish up on Nov. 4th.
Drizzled most of yesterday and today. Only hit about 61-62 today. (And the tractor died on the PW field, and had to be pushed off.)
But the kids had fun, the season got going, our total enrollment was up 30% over the last three years, and it is going to break 80 Tuesday and Wednesday.
I like fall ball.
