Hobbit Series Goes the Distance, Minas Morgul Prevails

Wednesday, October 1st, 2031
The Minas Morgul Slayers and Dead Marshes Uruk-hai tangled in a hard-fought Hobbit Series that needed to go the distance to find a winner.

That winner was Minas Morgul, with a 4-3 win at Sylvan Cove in the final game, to wrap the series 2-1.

"You saw our reaction when we won, I think that says it all," said Chukky Kendrick of his team's raucous celebration that quickly spilled onto the field and then subsequently into the team's locker room.

"Our guys are pretty excited for the Fellowship Series."

For the series Kendrick put up an MVP performance, hitting .455 with a .417 on-base percentage, with 0 home runs, 1 RBI and 3 runs scored.

The Minas Morgul Slayers will play against the Ravenhill Darkwings in the next round. Ravenhill had a bye in the Hobbit Series. The Fellowship Series schedule will be announced after the Hobbit Series finishes.

Rowan Hill Suffers Injury

Monday, September 29th, 2031
Minas Morgul reliever Rowan Hill left today's game with a torn meniscus. The injury looked like it occurred throwing a pitch in the game against Dead Marshes. One fan said, "As soon as it happened, you could tell something was wrong." The injury will likely leave the Slayers without Hill for about 3 months.

Hill's record this season is 1-and-3 with 7 saves and a 1.39 ERA. He has given up 36 hits in 64.2 innings with 80 strikeouts.

Playoff Bound: Sylvan Win Wild Card

Friday, September 26th, 2031
The Mirkwood Sylvan could very well have acquired some new fans late this season, as the team's 2031 playoff chase saw them win the wild card as the season wound to a close.

"It's a pretty exciting time to be a fan of the Sylvan. I think we had people on the edge of their seats wondering what would happen," said catcher DeForest *Hamrh.

What ended up happening is that the team's 81-81 record has allowed it to move on to the postseason, with a chance to win the 6th Return of the King Series in franchise history.

"It's only going to get more exciting from here on in," *Hamrh said.

No Late-Season Magic Coming: Bywater Out of Playoffs

Friday, September 26th, 2031
The Bywater Bounders will soon be packing their bags and heading home for the year. This season won't contain a playoff run for the club, as Bywater was mathematically eliminated from playoff contention today.

Bywater last appeared in the postseason in 2024. This is their 7th consecutive year missing the playoffs, and in total they have not advanced past the regular season 17 times in their 28-year history. In the last 10 seasons, the Bounders have missed the playoffs 6 times.

Dead Marshes Celebrates Wild Card Win

Thursday, September 25th, 2031
The Dead Marshes Uruk-hai have won a wild card position and are off to the postseason.

"Of course we set out to win the division, but in the end it doesn't matter how you get into the playoffs, as long as you get there," said starting pitcher Bulbo Moss.

The team's record is currently 80-81 and they will be looking to win the 1st Tolkien Baseball championship in team history.

Kings Come up Short of Playoffs

Thursday, September 25th, 2031
While some Tolkien Baseball pundits anticipated the Numenor Kings would be in this year's playoffs, that won't be the case. The Kings have been mathematically eliminated from postseason contention.

Before this season, the Kings last missed the playoffs in 2029. In the 28 years they have been a Tolkien Baseball franchise, they have missed the playoffs 20 times. In the last 10 years, they have missed the playoffs 9 times. Numenor last won the Return of the King Series in 2008.

Miners Clinches Wild Card

Thursday, September 25th, 2031
There's more drama in store for fans of the Moria Miners.

The team has narrowly won a wild card berth in the season's final days and now will be looking to parlay that into the 2nd Return of the King Series championship in team history.

"Never in doubt, we knew we'd get in," joked starting pitcher Porto Moss as he mockingly wiped sweat from his brow. "Now that we're in, we can relax a bit."

But there won't be too much relaxing, as the Tolkien Baseball playoffs are right around the corner.

"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
