Manager Ralin Rockbinder Fired by Devils

Monday, November 4th, 2030
It came as no surprise to anyone in the press corps: Ralin Rockbinder was fired today as manager of the Dunharrow Devils. His feuds with Devils players were one of the worst-kept secrets in baseball. Even through the closed doors of the manager's office, reporters often overheard shouting matches between Rockbinder and players. Rumors that a recent argument between Rockbinder and an unnamed pitcher degenerated into fisticuffs could not be substantiated, but there was no denying the acrimonious atmosphere that had developed in the clubhouse.

Team insiders had been saying for weeks that it was only a matter of time before Rockbinder would be let go. According to these insiders, the team has a replacement in mind, but will hold off making an official announcement for at least a day.

The champagne flowed freely as the jubilant players passed around the championship trophy. "This is a great ending for a great season," the victorious Minas Ithil skipper told the reporters in the clubhouse.

During the Shire Conference Hobbit Division regular season, the Wyrms compiled a record of 119-43 to finish first in the standings.

Minas Ithil Wyrms Are Champs

Thursday, October 24th, 2030
It was a hard-fought battle for both teams to make it this far. But as the saying goes, "To the victors go the spoils." Minas Ithil got the Tolkien Baseball Return of the King Series trophy today with a 4-2 victory over Ravenhill at Silmarillion Cellular Field. The Wyrms won their 3rd championship after taking the series with the Darkwings 4-2.

"They've got grit!" one fan said. "They know how to win when they have to. They're the League Champions!"

The new titleholders completed the regular season with a first-place finish in the Shire Conference Hobbit Division and a 119-43 record.

Star SP Signs Extension with Old Forest

Sunday, October 20th, 2030
Old Forest fans celebrated as word of a signing became reality. Gundabald Headstrong won't be pulling up stakes anytime soon, as he has signed a 8-year extension at a pay rate of $12,625,000 per annum.

Since he is widely seen as an integral part of the club, Old Forest officials had to keep Headstrong from jumping ship.

To date this season Headstrong is 14-6 with 32 starts and an ERA of 2.75 with 193 strikeouts in 209.2 innings.

"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
