Thursday, September 27th, 2035
The Dead Marshes Uruk-hai have silenced their critics, backed up those who believed in them and won the Mordor Conference Orc Division.

“You always think you’ve got a chance to win the division, but until you get it done you never really know how things are going to play out,” said starting pitcher Bulbo Moss. “I think we’re all pretty grateful to get the chance to vie for the Return of the King Series.”

It is the 10th division crown for the franchise and manager Mikee the German said in a sporting landscape where you are judged by what you’ve most recently accomplished, “it feels incredibly good to be at the top of the pile.”
