Bird Earns April’s Top Batter Prize in MC

Tuesday, May 1st, 2040
Tom Bird battered Mordor Conference pitchers all April and wound up taking home the Batter of the Month Award.

“I’ve been around Tolkien Baseball long enough to know you really have to work hard day in and day out to be able to put up this kind of consistency,” the 34-year-old Bird told reporters. “I put in a lot of work, even on the days I might not take the field, and it’s always nice when everything comes together for me like it did this last month.”

In 26 games, Bird hit .385 with 6 home runs, 22 RBIs and scored 18 runs.
