Injury Sidelines Aurelius Cisneros for Season

Friday, May 7th, 2038
Bucklebury reliever Aurelius Cisneros could miss the remainder of the season because of a fractured elbow. He exited yesterday’s Moria game after injuring himself while throwing a pitch. The original diagnosis said Cisneros would be out 7-8 months. Later on his doctors said he could be out even longer. “He’s done,” his manager commented at the BNN press conference. “It’s a season-ending injury, but it could have been worse. It’s not the worst-case scenario, so we’re happy about that.”

This season Cisneros has made 10 relief appearances with no saves. His won-lost record is 0-1 with a 2.02 ERA.

Despite his solid numbers, some fans questioned the value of the Justin Bats signing even as Bucklebury officials paraded him before the media this afternoon.

Career-to-date Bats has rung up a .273 average, played in 1805 games and collected 401 doubles, 40 triples and 294 home runs.

At the age of 31, Galiamir the Iron Giant might have some potential he hasn’t realized yet — if his success at the plate last week is any indication. The Bucklebury second baseman put up some exceptional numbers the past seven days with a .414 batting average. For his efforts the Iron Giant collected the Shire Conference Player of the Week Award.

He racked up 12 hits in 29 at-bats, 4 home runs and 8 RBIs last week in 6 games.

So far this year in 135 games the Iron Giant is hitting .296 with 33 home runs, 85 RBIs and 67 runs scored.

Bucklebury Out of Time, Out of Playoffs

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2037
The Bucklebury Fairies will have to put any fleeting championship aspirations on hold for the time being. The Fairies were mathematically eliminated from contention for the 2037 playoffs today.

This is the club’s 3rd playoff miss in a row. They last appeared in the postseason in 2034. In the last 10 seasons, the Fairies have missed the playoffs 2 times. In total, the Fairies have missed the playoffs 15 times in their 34-year history. Bucklebury last won the Return of the King Series in 2024.

*Kingslayer Holds Miners Scoreless

Wednesday, September 9th, 2037
The Moria Miners had no answer today for Bucklebury Fairies pitcher Jaime *Kingslayer. They failed to score a single run against him, losing 8-0. Moria managed only 4 hits off *Kingslayer, who had 15 strikeouts.

The extraordinarily popular *Kingslayer got a standing ovation from the hometown crowd as he left the field, the applause continuing until he returned from the dugout to tip his cap to the crowd.

“Fairies fans are the best fans, in my opinion,” he said. “It’s a great feeling to throw a shutout under any circumstances but to do it with the crowd behind you like that is just incredible.”

Thus far this season *Kingslayer has posted a 10-10 record, started 29 games, struck out 185 batters in 183 innings and compiled a 3.89 ERA.
