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.

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.
