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.
