Hobbit Series Goes the Distance, Old Forest Prevails
Monday, October 12th , 2043
The Hobbit Series went the distance before it all was said and done.
The Old Forest Merry Fellows and the Mirkwood Sylvan went at it tooth-and-nail and when it was over at Shire Greens Stadium, the winner was the Merry Fellows.
They put away Mirkwood 12-8 to cinch the series and won the right to move onto the Fellowship Series.
For his fine play, even in a losing effort, Mirkwood first baseman Antony the Charitable was given the series Most Valuable Player Award. He hit .538, scored 4 runs and batted in 5 to win the honor.
"It's nice that someone noticed my numbers, but I'd trade it in a heartbeat for a win," he said.
The Old Forest Merry Fellows will play against the Rivendell Royals in the next round. Rivendell had a bye in the Hobbit Series. The Fellowship Series schedule will be announced after the Hobbit Series finishes.
