Saturday, September 1st, 2035
Elle-Rhonda *Hubbard received the Shire Conference Batter of the Month trophy earlier today for her efforts at the plate this last month.

“She might be getting older,” Old Forest’s manager told reporters, “But she’s been around long enough to know what it takes to put a stretch such as this together… and she doesn’t keep that to herself. She’s always talking to the younger guys in the clubhouse helping ’em any way they’ll let her. Elle-Rhonda’s value to our team goes farther than the numbers she puts up on the field.”

To win the honor *Hubbard put up a .356 batting average, 9 home runs, 17 RBIs and scored 28 times in August.

Thus far this year *Hubbard has hit .308 with 34 home runs and 72 RBIs.
