Tuesday, November 13th, 2035
Happy times in Dunharrow as the Devils and star catcher Shaumli Gandillas put the finishing touches on a $23,200,000 contract extension that will keep the 34-year-old in town 2 years longer.

Another Setback For Dunharrow’s Shaia Celenduil

Tuesday, September 25th, 2035
“It’s worse than we thought.” That was the news from the Devils clubhouse today as it was learned that left fielder Shaia Celenduil will be out for an added 1-2 weeks as a result of a recent injury. His treatment for a strained hamstring will have to be extended. Initially it didn’t seem the injury was a major concern, but the Dunharrow left fielder told team trainers of some discomfort yesterday morning, and upon examination it was determined to be a more serious injury. “We’d rather take this thing slowly and make sure Shaia gets back onto the field healthy,” said the team’s head trainer.

On the year Celenduil has hit .316 with 19 home runs, 83 RBIs and scored 78 runs.

What a way to cap a glorious career — get elected to the Tolkien Baseball Hall of Fame. That’s exactly what happened to pitching star, Fabur Beardcutter. The Baseball Writers Association rewarded him for his sensational seasons on the mound and today he took his place among the baseball immortals.

Beardcutter told the audience at the ceremonies, “Baseball has been my life … and what a wonderful life it has been. The truth is I would have played it for almost nothing — but I wouldn’t have told any of the owners that.”

Beardcutter had a career record of 236 victories and 213 losses with 3722 strikeouts in 4173 innings and a 3.65 ERA. He was 41 when he retired from baseball, and he appeared in 678 games.

The “hardest feat in sports” debate is a never-ending one with no correct answer, but hitting three home runs is certainly in the conversation. That’s exactly what Bill Sandyman did today at The Ballpark at Helms Deep, going deep three times and carrying his team to victory, 5-2.

“It all came together. I was seeing the ball well and I got some good pitches to hit,” Sandyman said. “Good things happen, when that happens.”

The Dunharrow Devils right fielder blistered the Ravenhill Darkwings for 3 hits, batted in 4 runs and scored 3 times.

“It ain’t like we weren’t trying,” Ravenhill manager Papa Bear said. “He was hot and really torched my boys today.”

Bill Sandyman struck out in the 1st, hit a two-run home run off Cele the Evil Jr. in the 3rd, hit a solo-shot off Cele the Evil Jr. in the 5th, hit a solo-shot off Tigseen Lómämbor in the 7th and struck out in the 9th.
