Cam Enshrined in HOF

Tuesday, June 30th, 2037
The journey took a while, but he finally arrived — one of baseball’s finest hurlers, Splint Cam, is now a member of the Tolkien Baseball Hall of Fame.

Commenting on his election, one of his longtime managers said, “My idea of managing is giving the ball to Splint Cam and sitting down and watching him work. He certainly made my job easier. And he certainly made me a better manager.”

And pitch he certainly did — Cam appeared in 499 games in his career, tossed 3119.2 innings with 2782 strikeouts and compiled an impressive 209-125 record and 3.90 ERA.

One of his opposing managers had this to say about Cam, “Splint was one of the greatest pitchers I ever saw. He had knowledge, movement and form. It was wonderful to watch him pitch when he wasn’t pitching against you. It was poetry in motion.”

The newest member of the Hall of Fame retired at age 39 and will be inducted at ceremonies this weekend.

Fabur Beardcutter Inducted into Hall Of Fame

Saturday, June 30th, 2035
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.

Glimmerhand Joins HOF Legends

Saturday, June 30th, 2035
A huge crowd watched Arghren Glimmerhand become the newest member of the Tolkien Baseball Hall of Fame today.

“I’m a big believer in whatever you want, if you want something out of this game, you’ve got to put the work in it. You’ve got to work hard,” said the outstanding catcher, whose new plaque described him as “an artisan with a bat whose daily pursuit of excellence produced a .298 lifetime batting average, 2412 hits and 343 home runs.”

After the induction ceremony Glimmerhand was asked what was the most thrilling moment in his career. He responded quickly, “No doubt about it, your first hit in the big leagues. That’s tops. It means you’re on your way. When you get the first hit, then you can get the rest.”

“There is so much to love about this game,” the newest honoree said during his induction speech at the Tolkien Baseball Baseball Hall of Fame. “I couldn’t imagine anything greater than my first major league game.
