Daggerkicker Beaned by Pitching Machine

Saturday, April 26th, 2036
The Royals equipment manager announced today that he would order an inspection of all the team’s training equipment after a pitching machine beaned Wart Daggerkicker. The starting pitcher was briefly knocked unconscious after the machine lobbed an errant fastball directly at his head. Daggerkicker, who was clearly caught off-guard by the wild throw, attempted to duck out of the ball’s way, but was hit squarely in the side of the head. Fortunately for Daggerkicker, he was wearing a helmet at the time. Still, the sheer impact left him lying motionless on the ground for a few frightening moments. “It was scary,” said teammate Ginyc Maker. “I’ve never seen a pitching machine throw a pitch quite like that.” Daggerkicker was attended to by coaches and teammates and was later taken to a local hospital for observation. He was diagnosed with a mild concussion and may miss a few games as a result. “I’ve gotta admit,” Maker added, ” I’m gonna be a little nervous next time I have to face one of those things!”

Thursday, November 8th, 2035
Rivendell reliever Elanor Muddyfoot won’t be back next year. The 37-year-old announced plans today to retire at the end of the 2035 campaign, saying that it was time to call it a career.

“I could probably play another year,” Muddyfoot said, “but I don’t have that fire you need to play well. And I’m not going out there on those terms. It’s a disservice to the Royals and baseball in general. There are just too many aches and pains in this old body for me to continue playing.”

Muddyfoot has pitched in 969 games in her career, posting 408 saves, 936 strikeouts and a record of 69 victories and 82 losses. Her lifetime ERA stands at 3.16.
