Monday, October 1st, 2035
He may be young compared to many Tolkien Baseball stars, but at the age of 21, DeForest *Hamrh has already proven himself as an elite performer.

A .407 batting average on the season has put the Mirkwood Sylvan star into rarefied air.

“He’s only going to get better, that’s the scary thing,” the Mirkwood manager told reporters.

It will be hard to improve on a campaign that saw the catcher stroke 215 hits, with 24 doubles, 5 triples, 13 home runs, 65 RBIs and 93 runs scored.

“I definitely never expected to hit .407 this year, that’s for sure,” *Hamrh said.
