Lake Town's Kognar Moonkiller Suffers Setback
Wednesday, November 6th, 2041
All is not well with Kognar Moonkiller in his recovery from a torn calf muscle.
The 29-year-old Archers center fielder has already reached some significant steps in his rehabilitation, but his manager said that the team will continue to be cautious with Moonkiller and take his progression one day at a time, especially after the setback yesterday.
"Yesterday he was feeling good but he didn't do a lot on the field," he said. "Today he was supposed to be on the field doing light stuff and then gradually start working right back up. I think he overdid it."
A post-workout examination revealed that Moonkiller had re-injured himself and would now miss at least 4-5 months because of it.
Kognar Moonkiller is expected to undergo surgery in Unknown tomorrow.
Moonkiller is presently batting .292 with 34 home runs, 80 runs scored and 94 RBIs. His OBP is .333.
Isengard Wins 2041 Return of the King Series!
Tuesday, November 5th, 2041
A celebratory mood filled the air as the Isengard Raiders closed out the season with a 4-3 victory over the Old Forest Merry Fellows at Shire Greens Stadium to capture the Return of the King Series, 4-3.
Giving the Merry Fellows credit for a hard-fought series, Raiders players said they believed throughout the postseason that their "destiny" was to be crowned Tolkien Baseball champions.
"We felt like this was our year all season long," said shortstop Ragnar *Stonecutter III, who was named series MVP. "It was our destiny to win it and we did."
It was the 3rd in franchise history. During the Mordor Conference Troll Division regular season Isengard put up a 101-61 record and finished first.
"They're the champions and they deserve it," said a dejected Old Forest manager Thigol Elruldor. "We played good ball, they just played better than us."
