The series MVP was first baseman Kolak Koboldchoker, who hit .556 with a .556 on-base percentage. He had 2 home runs, drove in 7 RBI and scored 3 runs.

Friday, October 3rd, 2036
The Lothlorien Lumberjacks don’t see themselves as underdogs or long shots to win the Return of the King Series.

It may have been only a wild card berth the team was celebrating, as opposed to an Mordor Conference Goblin Division crown, but that didn’t damper the optimism.

“I think we’re one of the best teams in this league and when it counts, I know we can be the best,” said starting pitcher Ricky *Vaughn. “No one is going to remember the team that had the best regular season record. They are going to remember the Return of the King Series champions and we believe that’s going to be us.”

The Lumberjacks have a 83-76 record and will be looking to win the 1st Return of the King Series in team history.
