Pender Beaned by Pitching Machine

Monday, March 8th, 2032
The Darkwings equipment manager announced today that he would order an inspection of all the team's training equipment after a pitching machine beaned Gamella Pender. The center fielder was briefly knocked unconscious after the machine lobbed an errant fastball directly at her head. Pender, who was clearly caught off-guard by the wild throw, attempted to duck out of the ball's way, but was hit squarely in the side of the head. Fortunately for Pender, she was wearing a helmet at the time. Still, the sheer impact left her lying motionless on the ground for a few frightening moments. "It was scary," said teammate Tigseen Lómämbor. "I've never seen a pitching machine throw a pitch quite like that." Pender was attended to by coaches and teammates and was later taken to a local hospital for observation. She was diagnosed with a mild concussion and may miss a few games as a result. "I've gotta admit," Lómämbor added, " I'm gonna be a little nervous next time I have to face one of those things!"

Trollmaster to Donate Kidney to Ailing Brother

Tuesday, February 24th, 2032
Rivendell center fielder Tusur Trollmaster has decided to retire from baseball in order to donate a kidney to his brother. Doctors say Trollmaster's brother, who has advanced kidney disease, probably won't survive without a new organ.

"As much as I love the game of baseball, I love my brother more," said Trollmaster. "I'm just doing what I would hope someone would do for me if I needed it."

Elrilwyn Elvywyn had nothing but praise for his teammate.

"Tusur is such an incredible guy. To walk away from all of this to help someone he cares about just shows how much class he has."

His manager, Tigak Nosekiller, was equally impressed with Trollmaster's generosity.

"It takes a lot of character to make a sacrifice like that. We wish him and his brother all the best and we'll definitely be praying for their speedy recovery."

Brainthrottler and Glang Pitch in at Local Homeless Shelter

Saturday, February 7th, 2032
It is always good to see local athletes use their popularity and status for the good of the community. Today, Prorbag Brainthrottler and Flora Glang pitched in at local homeless shelter, serving meals for hundreds of underprivileged citizens of Dead Marshes. "It's the least we can do", added Brainthrottler. "I don't do it because I'm a member of the Uruk-hai, I do it because I care about the community. There's plenty of females and children among these orcs, and giving them a hot meal uplifts me as well. Seeing the looks of appreciation on their faces makes it all worth it."

Sunday, December 21st, 2031
You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you find a deal anyway. The Baseball News Network is reporting that Rivendell and Lake Town have made a swap with 28-year-old RHP Mimsh Kidneydragger being shipped to the Archers and in return the Royals would get 22-year-old minor league 2B Sirbag Dryadgobber.

"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
