Week's Premier Player: Minas Ithil's *Trollbasher

Monday, August 26th, 2030
It's always a thrill for fans of the team and students of the game alike when a superstar in the making shows what he's got. Brutus *Trollbasher, the Minas Ithil Wyrms 25-year-old catcher, put himself in the spotlight last week making him the clear-cut choice for Shire Conference Player of the Week honors.

He ripped 10 hits in 21 at-bats, compiling a .476 average with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs.

In his 2030 season totals, *Trollbasher has 36 home runs, .382 BA, .461 OBP, 101 RBIs and 108 runs scored.

Witch Kings Ditchdigger Snags MC Player of the Week

Monday, August 26th, 2030
Nusin Ditchdigger is respected by most Weathertop Witch Kings fans for his no-frills style of play. The 30-year-old shortstop went about his business with vigor last week to grab the Mordor Conference Player of the Week honors.

He compiled a .462 average (12-26) with 6 home runs, 15 RBIs and 8 runs scored.

In 114 games this year Ditchdigger has posted a .239 average and put up these numbers: 31 home runs, 90 RBIs and 75 runs scored.

Bucklebury, Veteran Faroden Sign Deal

Monday, August 26th, 2030
Happy times in Bucklebury as the Fairies and star starting pitcher Jesse Faroden put the finishing touches on a $38,610,000 contract extension that will keep the 32-year-old in town 3 years longer.

The signing is great news for Bucklebury because players of this caliber are hard to come by.

This season Faroden has a 6-15 record with a 4.55 ERA.

*Véneanár Reaches 2500 Milestone

Thursday, August 22nd, 2030
What a day for Mablung *Véneanár. The 37-year-old Mirkwood shortstop reached the 2500-hit mark today and the Marauders whipped the Minas Ithil Wyrms 9-8.

*Véneanár told reporters, "It's good to finally get it. The closer you get to 2500, the harder it is to get there. Now the pressure is off and I can go back to just playing ball."

He went 2 for 5 in the game to reach the milestone.

*Véneanár's all-time stats include: 2501 hits, 269 doubles, 46 triples, 496 home runs and 1617 RBIs in 2128 games. He is batting .307 with 366 stolen bases and has scored 1536 runs.

*Monkeyslayer Week's Best in MC

Monday, August 19th, 2030
Not every ball that came off James *Monkeyslayer's bat last week was a line drive or a towering shot -- it just seemed that way to the teams that played the Dunharrow Devils. For his exploits, *Monkeyslayer was named this week's Mordor Conference Player of the Week award.

The Dunharrow first baseman put up 11 hits in 28 at-bats and 4 home runs while hitting .393 with 9 RBIs and 7 runs scored.

This season *Monkeyslayer has hit 19 home runs and posted a .263 batting average.

Shire Conference Winner is Demoneater

Monday, August 19th, 2030
There's nothing like being in the prime of your baseball career -- and playing like it. Just ask Gignar Demoneater, the Moria left fielder, who swung a sweet bat all week to not only aid his team, but also pick up the Shire Conference Player of the Week honors.

Demoneater piled up 11 hits in 23 at-bats, 2 home runs and 6 RBIs while hitting .478.

Presently Demoneater is batting .310 with 19 home runs and 69 RBIs. He has played in 83 games and scored 52 times.

Spleensmasher Goes on Rampage Against Merry Fellows

Friday, August 16th, 2030
"It was like I was hitting little league pitching," said Olburz Spleensmasher after his 5-hit performance against the Merry Fellows. "No offense meant to Old Forest, but it was like I was back in little league again. I could see the ball that well. But this wasn't a kid league park, it was The Eyrie." The Erebor shortstop had a fantastic day at the plate, knocking out 5 hits in 6 at-bats and pacing his club to a 14-2 victory. His manager elaborated after the game to the press, saying, "Olburz worked the entire offseason on trying to shorten his swing and stay inside the ball and the hard work is paying off in base hits." "That's what I'm trying to do," Spleensmasher said. "Be quick to the ball and let it travel a little farther so I get a better look at it." Olburz Spleensmasher singled in the 1st, hit an RBI single in the 2nd, singled in the 3rd, flied out in the 5th, hit an RBI single in the 7th and hit an RBI single in the 8th.

This year Spleensmasher has hit at a .246 clip with 7 RBIs, 2 home runs and 9 runs scored.

This year Moss has compiled a 12-7 mark with a 3.89 ERA.

Uruk-hai Lose Gandaudur Eäräthien

Wednesday, August 14th, 2030
The Dead Marshes Uruk-hai were dealt a severe blow when Gandaudur Eäräthien was hurt throwing a pitch recently in a game against the Minas Morgul Slayers. After the game, the team trainer reported Eäräthien might have to spend a lengthy time on the disabled list. Today doctors confirmed it, ruling the 25-year-old starting pitcher out for the rest of the season with a torn rotator cuff. They indicated it would take Eäräthien at least 4-5 months to heal.

In the current season in 14 starts, Gandaudur Eäräthien has a record of 5-3 with 72 strikeouts in 72.1 innings and a 3.11 ERA.

"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
