Wild Card Clinched by Cheese

Saturday, October 3rd, 2037
The Bree Cheese clubhouse was filled with loud music and revelry late into the night, as the team celebrated a Shire Conference wild card position.

The team, whose record stands at 84-76, battled throughout the year, but ultimately saw the quest for the playoffs come down to the season’s final games.

“I’d be lying if I said we knew we were going to make it,” said catcher Eideron *Knucklebreaker. “We did have confidence, but in the back of your mind you always wonder what’s going to happen. There were some good teams pushing us.”

Now the Cheese don’t have to worry, as they are in position to potentially win the 3rd Tolkien Baseball championship in franchise history.
