27-year-old Midash Anviltooth 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, Anviltooth made the establishment sit up and take notice, punishing opposing pitchers with a .522 average, 12 hits in 23 at-bats, 3 home runs and 9 runs batted in.
Where the Numenor Kings first baseman goes from here, only the baseball gods know for sure, but Anviltooth certainly made his mark last week.
A look at his season totals shows Anviltooth with 15 home runs, .275 BA, .314 OBP, 48 RBIs and 61 runs scored.
