#300 for Goldtearer

Friday, May 8th, 2037
Marin Goldtearer circled the bases and raised his arm in triumph. He had finally hit his 300th home run. It was a homer for a lot of people: himself, his teammates past and present, his former managers and coaches, and especially his family, who sat near the plate cheering his every at-bat during the past few games.

Goldtearer spoke with BNN and said, “I knew number 300 would come sooner or later. I had to keep reminding myself, ‘Relax, relax, just let it happen, let it happen.’ And it finally did.”

His milestone homer came in the Weathertop Witch Kings 4-2 win over the Dunharrow Devils. Goldtearer went 2 for 5 in the game, scored 2 runs, and batted in 2.

His all-time numbers show Goldtearer is carrying a .322 career batting average with 300 home runs and 994 RBIs.
