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.
