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.

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.”

The Tolkien Baseball Hall of Fame just added a fine third baseman and hitter to its number. The newest member of baseball’s most elite group is Orgulas Black, who retired at the age of 39.

“I always knew I was good enough to play, but the Hall of Fame was one of the few things I never even dreamed of,” said Black at his induction ceremony. “For me to focus a lot on the individual, that’s not the way I learned to play the game. Baseball is a team game. You win as a team, you lose as team. You also do so many things together, but it is not an ‘I’ thing.”

During his illustrious career, Black had 462 home runs among his 2451 hits, while batting .277. He played in 2356 games, scored 1470 runs and knocked in 1507 runs.
