Career Over for Gwildoc, Major Injury

Wednesday, June 16th, 2032
Ravenhill shortstop Saor Gwildoc sustained a concussion colliding with a player at a base in yesterday's game against the Lumberjacks. It was only later, at the local hospital, that the severity of the injury became apparent. While the Darkwings team doctor was confident Gwildoc would make at least a partial recovery, he was less optimistic about his future in baseball. "Professional ballplayers need to be in peak physical condition. Unfortunately, Saor will be affected by this injury for the rest of his life."

In his season totals, Gwildoc has 8 home runs, .329 BA, .410 OBP, 33 RBIs and 27 runs scored. He has played in 52 games.

No-Tooth Gives Rivendell Goose Eggs

Tuesday, June 15th, 2032
All went well for Lanai No-Tooth of the Minas Tirith Titans as he pitched his team to a 3-0 shutout victory over the Rivendell Royals, limiting them to 1 hit while ringing up 9 strikeouts and surrendering 1 walk.

In the postgame interview, both managers had glowing things to say about No-Tooth.

His manager described him this way: "He's got a good selection of pitches he can throw at a guy. He changes speed, gives different looks to different hitters. When he's on his game, he's quite a handful."

The Rivendell skipper said, "He doesn't give you anything twice. It's a guessing game with him and today my club was always guessing wrong."

To date this year, No-Tooth shows a 6-6 record, 15 starts, 110 innings, 98 strikeouts and a 4.42 ERA.

Five Sylvan Pitchers Toss Combined No-Hitter

Saturday, June 12th, 2032
In a rainy Amon Sul Stadium, five Mirkwood hurlers combined to shut out the Witch Kings. Not only that, but they entered the record books by making it a NO-HITTER!

Eimer Eladriewen was first up, starting the game for the Sylvan and going 4.1 innings without giving up a hit or a run. His 4 walks were the only baserunners that Weathertop would have all night. He left after one out in the 5th with a 1-0 lead, replaced by Hyman Klingerberg (2-6) who was credited with the win.

Klingerberg pitched 1.2 innings, striking out 1, before handing the ball to Celoer Earaldor in the 7th. Earaldor went two full innings, leaving the 9th up to Bully Walters and Ponto Mugworts. Walters faced two batters, fanning one, and Mugworts finished the game by striking out Ediberto Spleenwhomper.

For Mirkwood, the only run they needed came in the 4th when DeForest *Hamrh walked, then stole 2B and took 3B on a throwing error by the Witch Kings catcher, Ariadriel Wyndomiel. Granil Ironbane singled *Hamrh home for the first run of the game.

*Hamrh doubled home another run in the 6th, and Ironbane plated Ako Smaudoc from 3B with a fielders choice grounder. Jesus Barnwell capped off the scoring in the 8th with his 11th HR of the year.

Thursday, June 10th, 2032
Moria closer Janice Ploughman was taken to a local hospital earlier this evening when she was struck in the temple by a wayward pitch during batting practice.

"She pretty well got her clock cleaned," said teammate Malin Roadapple, who witnessed the incident. A CAT-scan revealed no evidence of a concussion or other injuries and Ploughman was cleared to return to practice. However, manager Florar Arwima said Ploughman would be held out of the lineup for the Miners next game as a precaution.

Bywater-New New York Trade: Imromer for Belámir

Monday, June 7th, 2032
You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you find a deal anyway. The Baseball News Network is reporting that Bywater and New New York have made a swap with 28-year-old minor league 2B Gandauthor Imromer, 26-year-old minor league 2B Frilo Mansmasher and 21-year-old minor league RF Dilir Grudgesmith being shipped to the Blernsballers and in return the Bounders would get 24-year-old 2B Girith Belámir.

The New New York general manager said the two sides were close to a blockbuster trade before agreeing upon a smaller scale transaction. "This is just a bit of housekeeping compared to what we wanted to do," he said. "I won't name names, but the potential deal we were close to making would have certainly grabbed some headlines." A source inside the Bywater organization said the two sides might not be done dealing, and another transaction could be in the works.

Imromer has compiled a career batting average of .224 with 70 hits, 2 homers and 31 RBIs.

"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
