Darkwings Advance to Two Towers Series

Sunday, October 14th, 2035
Fusil Silvermaster said his Ravenhill Darkwings simply weren’t ready for the season to come to an end.

“We told ourselves we were winning this series no matter what,” he said, shortly after being named the Fellowship Series MVP, following a 1-0 win at Grey Havens Field that officially eliminated the Grey Havens Stars, 4-1.

Silvermaster said his team is “confident and ready” for the Two Towers Series.

The Ravenhill Darkwings will play against the Dol Guldur Dragons in the next round. Dol Guldur won their series against the Dead Marshes Uruk-hai 4 games to 1. The Two Towers Series schedule will be announced after the Fellowship Series finishes.

Triple Crown for Forerunner *Baggins

Monday, October 1st, 2035
To hit for a high average makes one a coveted ballplayer. To hit for power catches everyone’s attention, too. But to do both — and to do it better than anyone else — that puts a player in a special class. Forerunner *Baggins now belongs to that class.

The 26-year-old Ravenhill first baseman has won the Triple Crown, the 3rd player in history to do it. He topped the Mordor Conference in batting average (.363), home runs (51), and runs batted in (137).

His manager said, “Forerunner is not only a special ballplayer, he’s a special person. He handled all the media attention with class this year and never let it affect his play or the ballclub. I am really proud of him. It couldn’t have happened to a better person.”

Darkwings Easily Win Mordor Conference Goblin Division

Monday, September 10th, 2035
Those expecting a dogfight in the Mordor Conference Goblin Division this year got quite the opposite – an early, easy division crown for the Ravenhill Darkwings.

“When you look at how far we are ahead, it might look like it was an easy year, but it didn’t feel that way for us,” said first baseman Forerunner *Baggins. “A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into putting us here.”

With a current record of 93-50, the Darkwings can no longer be caught, cinching up a 13th division title for the franchise.

Team manager Papa Bear said his club will “take some time to celebrate” the division title, but then “it’s right back to work.”
