Merry Fellows Gundabald Headstrong Down and Out for Year

Thursday, August 20th, 2037
The Old Forest Merry Fellows were dealt a severe blow when Gundabald Headstrong was hurt throwing a pitch recently in a game against the Dagorlad Disaster. After the game, the team trainer reported Headstrong might have to spend a lengthy time on the disabled list. Today doctors confirmed it, ruling the 34-year-old starting pitcher out for the rest of the season with a ruptured ulnar collateral ligament. They indicated it would take Headstrong at least 12 months to heal.

This year Headstrong has a 9-4 record and a 3.64 ERA.

It’s Over: Royals Stop Elrailbo

Wednesday, July 29th, 2037
Old Forest first baseman Diador Elrailbo experienced something against the Rivendell Royals he hadn’t experienced a while: a hitless game.

The Royals pitching corps quieted his hot bat and snapped his streak at 20 games, but his teammates picked up the slack to lead the Merry Fellows to a 9-0 victory at Royals Stadium.

“Hey, ain’t nothin’ bad about a losing a 20-game hitting streak,” Elrailbo joked with reporters after the game. “Now you guys will have to find someone else to bother for stories.”

This season Elrailbo is batting .324 with 25 home runs. His totals include 79 RBIs and 62 runs scored.
