Not even a late-season surge can save the Numenor Kings playoff hopes this season. The team was mathematically eliminated from postseason contention today.
The Kings have missed the playoffs 24 times in their 32 years as a Tolkien Baseball franchise. This playoff miss is the club’s 5th in a row, with their last postseason appearance coming in 2030. In the last 10 seasons, the Kings have missed the playoffs 9 times. Numenor last won the Return of the King Series in 2008.
