Jesse Faroden Inducted into Hall Of Fame

Wednesday, June 30th, 2038
Someone once said, “There’s no crying in baseball.” But the tears were flowing in abundance today at the Hall of Fame induction of baseball great Jesse Faroden. They were tears of joy.

The superstar hurler got quite emotional at times during his speech as he retraced his journey from humble beginnings to the pinnacle of success in the baseball world.

He told the audience, “The greatest feeling in the world is to win a major league game. The second greatest feeling is to lose a major league game. For someone who truly loved playing baseball, I couldn’t really lose either way. Just to be on a baseball diamond is a wonderful feeling. Life just doesn’t get any better than that. I will really miss it.”

Baseball newest legend ended his career at age 39 with 219 wins and 150 defeats and compiled a 3.73 ERA. Faroden made 485 appearances and struck out 3620 in 3334.1 innings. Teams hit a composite .231 against him.

Moss Joins HOF Immortals

Wednesday, June 30th, 2038
The newest member of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame looked impressive standing in front of the assembled crowd. The bronze plaque shined in the bright sun, gleaming from the fresh polish. “Man, that guy is handsome!” Porto Moss commented. “I never realized that I looked so good!”

One of the most colorful characters in league history, Moss was also one of the league’s most dominant starting pitchers. Racking up a career record of 200-144, he was a pitcher that no manager ever worried about while he was on the mound. Off the field, however…

“We always had to be careful in the locker room,” one of his former managers remembered with a laugh. “If you weren’t paying attention, you would fall victim to one of his infamous pranks. There was never a dull moment when this guy was around.”

“I always felt that if I could bring the guys together by making them laugh, then I was doing my job on the days I wasn’t pitching,” Moss explained. “We play a kids’ game after all, so why shouldn’t we have some fun? In fact, it was probably the key to my success. I just hope the other statues in the Hall are prepared; I’m sure this guy will keep them on their toes.”

He retired at the age of 37. In his outstanding career Moss appeared in 537 games, pitched 3156.1 innings, fanned 4167 batters, walked 987 and compiled a 3.58 ERA.

Hall of Fame Inducts Starting Pitcher

Wednesday, June 30th, 2038
The Tolkien Baseball made it official today. They honored one of the best pitchers to ever step on the mound. In recognition of a superlative career, Duudak Heartmasher today joined the other legends in the Tolkien Baseball Hall of Fame.

He was introduced by his favorite manager, who said, “To be a successful manager you have to have two things: faith in God above … and several pitchers like Duudak Heartmasher on the mound.”

Baseball’s newest legend comes with great credentials. He entered the Hall with a 227-128 record, a 3.65 ERA, and 3681 strikeouts in 3212.1 innings. He retired from baseball at age 38.

Wednesday, June 30th, 2038
A huge crowd watched Nose Gladrierà 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 first baseman, whose new plaque described him as “an artisan with a bat whose daily pursuit of excellence produced a .301 lifetime batting average, 2782 hits and 487 home runs.”

After the induction ceremony Gladrierà 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.”

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.
