Big Bat Pays Off, Pender Player of the Week

Monday, July 2nd, 2029
Her hard work and hustle paid off this week. The hard-working and hard-playing Gamella Pender was rewarded with the Mordor Conference Player of the Week honors.

The scrappy Ravenhill Darkwings center fielder hit .545 while collecting 12 hits in 22 at-bats, 5 home runs and 14 RBIs.

Looking at her stats this year, Pender has compiled a .313 batting average, while hitting 16 home runs and driving in 58 runs. She has played in 53 games and scored 43 runs.

SC Player of the Week Selected

Monday, July 2nd, 2029
25-year-old Marin Goldtearer sent shock waves through Tolkien Baseball last week with an eye-popping performance that brought him the Shire Conference Player of the Week Award.

A newcomer to the league, Goldtearer made the establishment sit up and take notice, punishing opposing pitchers with a .500 average, 14 hits in 28 at-bats, 2 home runs and 9 runs batted in.

Where the Minas Ithil Wyrms first baseman goes from here, only the baseball gods know for sure, but Goldtearer certainly made his mark last week.

Currently Goldtearer is batting .322 with 99 hits and 16 home runs. He has knocked in 71 runs and scored 55 times.

Misty Mountain Starter Selected Best Pitcher

Sunday, July 1st, 2029
Ediberto Whistler left little doubt in the minds of Mordor Conference officials that he should be named June's Pitcher of the Month for his outstanding performance.

"I wasn't always confident at the start of a game," said Whistler. "Sometimes it's hard to get into the flow -- the calls aren't going your way or you're trying to spot your pitches too much. You just have to relax and use what you've been taught all your life -- get back to basics -- good mechanics, control, location, keep the ball down."

The 26-year-old tossed 43.1 innings of quality baseball -- going 5-0 with a 3.12 ERA and 39 strikeouts.

For the year Whistler has a 12-1 record with a 2.56 ERA in 18 starts.

SC Starter of the Month Goes to Trader

Sunday, July 1st, 2029
Despite the number of years he's been in the league, Legend Trader still gets excited when he puts together a quality stretch like he had in June. The 34-year-old starter for Minas Ithil was named Shire Conference Pitcher of the Month earlier today.

He collected 5 wins and no losses with 58 strikeouts in his 7 starts, putting up a fine 2.25 ERA in 48 innings of work.

In 19 starts this season Trader has registered a 14-2 record and a 2.42 ERA.

Smiddlefidget Wins Best Bat Trophy in June

Sunday, July 1st, 2029
June was a good month for Vrung Smiddlefidget. The Isengard second baseman had his way with opposing pitchers all month while posting a .419 batting average and was selected as the Mordor Conference Batter of the Month.

Last month Smiddlefidget put up some solid numbers: 9 home runs, 25 RBIs, 26 runs scored and a .469 on-base percentage.

This year Smiddlefidget has hit at a .324 clip with 52 RBIs, 17 home runs and 47 runs scored.

Hawks Claims SC Batter of the Month Award

Sunday, July 1st, 2029
Snap, crackle and pop!
In June, Wayne Hawks snapped up the Shire Conference Batter of the Month trophy by cracking 26 hits and popping 12 home runs.

For the month he hit a solid .351 with 30 RBIs and 25 runs scored. The Old Forest designated hitter also picked up 19 walks to compile a .484 on-base percentage.

Hawks is hitting .293 so far this season with 56 RBIs and 60 runs scored. He has 78 hits including 17 home runs, 65 walks and .438 OBP.

Brainthrottler Touches All the Bases, Hits for Cycle

Friday, June 29th, 2029
Most fans have never seen a player get a single, double, triple and home run all in one game -- but it happened today at Khazad-dum Stadium. Hahai Brainthrottler of the Minas Ithil Wyrms hit for the cycle against Moria. He went 4-4 in the 12-2 victory, scored 2 runs and had 5 runs batted in. It was a day to remember for both Brainthrottler and the fans.

Hahai Brainthrottler walked in the 1st, singled in the 3rd, hit a two-run home run off Frohil Elvaviel in the 4th, hit an RBI triple in the 6th and hit a two-run double in the 8th.

Posting a .329 batting average to date, Brainthrottler has 25 home runs and 83 RBIs.

Sandyman Signs for 3 years

Friday, June 29th, 2029
The Ravenhill Darkwings have finished a deal with All Star-caliber closer Isengrim Sandyman that will extend his stay in Ravenhill at least 3 years and will pay out $13,000,000.

This year Sandyman has made 28 relief appearances, pitched 30 innings, and fashioned a 2-0 record with a 2.40 ERA. He has recorded 9 saves, struck out 38, and allowed opposing clubs to hit .182 when he is on the hill.

Marauders, Badgers Trade Star Players

Wednesday, June 27th, 2029
Officials from the Mirkwood organization were all smiles as they announced a deal with the Narnia Badgers today involving several top-flight players. The Marauders will receive 25-year-old center fielder Jesus Barnwell in return for 32-year-old third baseman Hob Baggins and 21-year-old minor league third baseman Shalla Eregion.
"Both sides had to work overtime to get this deal done," the Badgers GM reported.

Baggins is batting .268 with 4 home runs and 10 RBIs this season.

"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
