Big Swap Announced in SGCBL

Monday, April 7th, 2031
After hours of negotiating and even a few ultimatums, the Fairies and Cadets finally worked out a deal involving several high-profile players. The Cadets will receive 36-year-old 2B Carl Sandburg, 27-year-old RHP Yondeg Glitterkiller and $68,000,000 in cash in exchange for 25-year-old RHP Huugdish Gnomebasher and 21-year-old minor league RHP Luumsh Gaulf. Trade rumors had been swirling around these players for some time, but the move still raised eyebrows in both markets and around the league.

Sandburg is hitting at a .271 rate over his 763-game career. Lifetime he has 125 doubles, 22 triples and 116 home runs with 432 RBIs and 422 runs scored.

Fairie Great Scarlett *III to Retire

BUCKLEBURY - Earlier this year, we saw the retirement of one of the great hitters of the league--Mablung *Véneanár, the 8-time All-Star, 2-time Sam Gamgee Batter and twice MVP from Mirkwood. Well, tonight, we witness the final bow of another one of the greatest players in league history--Scarlett *III.

Scarlett 'Mawaan' *III was named MVP six times over her career, winning the Sam Gamgee five times and taking home three Legolas Fielder awards at catcher. The 11-time All-Star holds several league records and is in the top 10 in numerous categories, including:

Season Batting Average - 4th (.3956, 2021), 5th (.3859, 2020), 9th (.3795, 2018)
Career Batting Average - 2nd (.351)
Season On-Base Percentage - 2nd (.5268, 2023), 7th (.5007, 2021), 9th (.4911, 2020), 10th (.4910, 2024)
Career On-Base Percentage - 2nd (.4569)
Season Slugging Percentage - 2nd (.6974, 2023), 3rd (.6958, 2020)
Career Slugging Percentage - 1st (.601)
Season Runs Scored - 1st (181, 2023), 7th (146, 2021)
Career Runs Scored - 10th (1554)
Season Hits - 5th (233, 2018)
Career HR - 9th (503)
Season Walks - 2nd (191, 2023)

Scarlett, who will turn 36 this July, gave the season a shot, hoping for one last trip around the league to soak in the adoration of fans. However, after her first three games, she made the tough choice to give it up. "I just couldn't perform even up to replacement level," she said. "And the last thing I want to do is stand around taking bows while not contributing. I couldn't do that to my teammates or the great Bucklebury fans."

"Beings will come Frodo. They'll come to Middle Earth for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your road not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as hobbits, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only 2 gold pieces per person. They'll pass over the gold without even thinking about it: for it is gold they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. Beings will come Frodo. The one constant through all the years, Frodo, has been baseball. Middle Earth has rolled by like an army of Mumakil. It has been erased like a slate, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Frodo. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... beings will come Frodo. Beings will most definitely come." - Torrenz Mantalker, Gladden Field of Dreams
