With some great hand-eye coordination and a sweet, compact swing, Bree Cheese center fielder Suuggek Ettincrawler took the Shire Conference by storm this past week to take the latest Player of the Week honors.

“The ball was looking like a beach ball all week,” a happy Ettincrawler said to BNN reporters. “When it’s that big, it doesn’t matter where they throw it — I can hit it anywhere.”

Drowdicer Hits for the Cycle

Saturday, April 17th, 2038
It was a special day for Gwudriel Drowdicer at Royals Stadium — the Bree Cheese center fielder hit for the cycle, getting every type of hit possible.

The 27-year-old Drowdicer racked up 2 singles, 1 double, 1 triple and 1 home run to get his name in the history books. It was all for naught, however, as the Cheese didn’t win the ballgame, dropping the decision to the Rivendell Royals, 8-3.

“He hit everything we threw,” said Rivendell manager Marcos Easyheart. “There was just no getting him out today.”

For the game, he was 5-for-5 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored.

“I’m glad for Gwudriel,” Bree manager Tonak Gnomedragger said. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing and a nice feather in his cap. Would’ve been better if we could have won the game for him, too.”

Speaking to the press after the game, Drowdicer said the key for his record-setting day was “just getting some good pitches to hit.”

Gwudriel Drowdicer singled in the 1st, hit a solo-shot off Caradas Shushud in the 3rd, doubled in the 5th, singled in the 7th and tripled in the 9th.

This season Drowdicer is batting .488 with 6 RBIs, 10 runs scored and 5 home runs.

Over the offseason, Rockcrusher added 10 pounds of pure muscle. Rockcrusher attributes his new look to his intensive off-season workout regimen, which he compared to that of a football player. He also did a lot of biking around the Bree area, and ventured out for hikes as well.

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.
