Tuesday, April 29th, 2036

*Hubbard Reaches 2000

Wednesday, April 9th, 2036
Elle-Rhonda *Hubbard has gone through many bats during her playing career. None of them means as much to her as the one she used to crack career hit number 2000 at Lake Town Park yesterday.

The 32-year-old Merry Fellows right fielder told reporters after the game, “I plan to keep this bat at home in my own private Hall of Fame.”

It was a happy day for *Hubbard from the standpoint of the 2000-hit milestone, but a little disappointing, too. Despite her achievement, Old Forest dropped the contest to the Lake Town Archers 8-6.

For the day *Hubbard finished the day with 3 hits in 5 at-bats.

For her 1819-game career *Hubbard has hit .295 with 2000 hits, 1310 RBIs, and 465 home runs.

Sportswriters, fans and team officials watched today as 34-year-old right fielder Vabis Githrarith committed to a $26,000,000, 3-year deal with the Old Forest organization.

Githrarith has a career .273 batting average and .388 on-base percentage. He has recorded 1293 hits with 230 doubles, 30 triples, 259 homers, 770 RBIs and scored 866 runs since coming into the league.
