26-year-old Kobur Eowul sent shock waves through Tolkien Baseball last week with an eye-popping performance that brought him the Mordor Conference Player of the Week Award.
A newcomer to the league, Eowul made the establishment sit up and take notice, punishing opposing pitchers with a .393 average, 11 hits in 28 at-bats, 5 home runs and 11 RBI.
Where the Isengard Raiders shortstop goes from here, only the baseball gods know for sure, but Eowul certainly made his mark last week.
This season Eowul is hitting at a .223 pace with 10 home runs, 30 RBIs and has scored 28 times.
