“I’m frustrated right now,” said Bucklebury shortstop Greond Greasy. “I can’t help this team by sitting on the bench or in the training room.” Unfortunately for the Fairies, that’s where he will be spending 5 weeks. Greasy suffered a torn abdominal muscle in today’s game against Misty Mountain while running the bases. “Believe me,” he said, “I won’t be out a day longer than I have to be.”

Greasy is swinging at a .309 pace on the year with 11 home runs, 44 RBIs and 56 runs scored. He has played in 115 games.

*Kingslayer Told No More Tailgating Parties

Saturday, August 9th, 2036
While no official word has been released on the situation, rumors have begun circulating that Jaime *Kingslayer has been ordered by the Bucklebury Fairies front office to “knock off the tailgating parties.”

Many believe this is the result of the popularity of *Kingslayer’s wagon parties which have attracted several hundred fans before each game. Fellow team mate, Dosil Trollsmith, expressed dismay if that were the case, but had concerns nonetheless.

“With that many people, the drinking and what not, it can get a bit out of hand. We have a game to play and there’s no real security out there. We all went out to check it out last time and I can say, it was a bit crazy.”

While *Kingslayer has seemingly been told he can no longer drive his ox-driven wagon into the team’s parking lot, he casually stated, “No one has said I can’t park it around the block, have they?”
