Erebor-Dunharrow Trade: Cross for Facestomper

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2030
It came down to the last hour of a self-imposed trade deadline, but the Erebor Eagles and Dunharrow Devils finally came to an agreement on a trade that had been rumored for weeks. The trade sends Erebor's 28-year-old starting pitcher Arulas Cross to Dunharrow in a swap for 23-year-old minor league catcher Erudak Facestomper. Both GMs seemed relieved that the deal had been completed with one stating, "We had to set a deadline to get it done." The players are expected to report to their new teams by tomorrow.

His record this year is 5-7 in 17 starts and Cross has a 5.25 ERA.

Shire Wins 4th straight All-Star Showdown

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2030
The Shire Conference made it four victories in a row over their rivals in the Mordor Conference with a 9-2 win at The Ballpark at Helm's Deep. A convincing win, this stretches their lead in the series to 16-12.

For much of the game, however, it was much closer than the final score might indicate. After Minas Ithil's Hahai Brainthrottler got the scoring started with a mammoth 2-run HR in the top of the 2nd, The Ravenhill crowd of almost 55,000 fans got to see their hometown hero, Forerunner *Baggins, tie the score with a 2-run blast of his own. And that's the way it stayed until the 6th inning.

In the top of the 6th, Bree's Deivi Ironmaster put the Shire gang on top with a solo homer that was followed two outs later by Brainthrottler's 2nd HR of the game, giving the Shire Conference a 5-2 lead.

The next inning, they really broke it open when Justin Bats of Minas Tirith hit a solo homer to make it 6-2, and after Ironmaster collected his 4th hit of the game, Old Forest's Elle-Rhonda *Hubbard greeted new pitcher, Proddo Pieweto of Isengard, with a 3-run blast that made it 9-2.

Minas Ithil hurler, Levi LegurÓ, was credited with the win, and Bulbo Moss of Dead Marshes took the loss. The Player of the Game was Hahai Brainthrottler.

"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
