Year Ends for Steven Radigast in Weathertop

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2036
When Weathertop starting pitcher Steven Radigast was taken out of the game, the crowd at the Witch Kings-Lumberjacks game went silent as they could tell that it was a serious injury.

Gororon Accidentally Hexes Self While Practicing Spells

Tuesday, March 18th, 2036
Samli Gororon will be spending some time on the disabled list after he was practicing spellcraft when he hexed himself with his own wand. An electric bolt of energy entered into Gororon’s foot and he had to be rushed to the local emergency room. Manager, Gameodriel Anorfin, will be forced to find a replacement for the injured player for the next few weeks at least. Doctors were able to salve the wound, but Gororon will be laid up for at least a month while it heals.

“Normally I’m very careful when I practice spells,” a disappointed Gororon told reporters. “I guess it goes to show, you can never be sure with magic.”

Team doctors are unsure whether or not this will have any long term effects on the second baseman’s ability to play ball.
