The Weathertop 7-4 loss to Ravenhill wasn’t all bad. Something good came out it, at least for Snarly *Zottmiester. As a consolation prize he got the 2000th hit of his career. The veteran Witch Kings shortstop went 2-for-5 in the game and added his name to the coveted 2000-hit club. He was given a five-minute ovation by the crowd, which included his wife and family and quite a few former Witch Kings teammates.
“I could have scripted it better,” *Zottmiester commented to the press after the game, “a win would have made it a lot more enjoyable. But what the hey… hit #2000 ain’t so bad.”
Lifetime *Zottmiester is hitting .296 with 2000 hits, 314 doubles, 63 triples and 68 home runs. He has scored 1138 runs and driven in 622.
