A big sigh of relief erupted from Tarechorion *Gomdrol after he hit his 300th career homer. The Misty Mountain third baseman said, “I’m glad it’s over…now I can go back to just playing baseball.”
It was quite a day for *Gomdrol. He got his name in the league record books with 2 hits, 2 runs batted in, scored 2 runs and his team, the Misty Mountain Hops beat the Grey Havens Stars 8-1.
*Gomdrol knew it when he hit it. He raised his hands in the air, then ran the bases like a high school player, clapping and grinning.
He told reporters in the postgame interview, “I was acting goofy running the bases… but it was my 300th home run.”
“It was great,” his manager said. “He stood there and watched it…we all did. You just felt it was coming…you just had a sense he would hit it soon. He has been having a lot of good at-bats. It was great to get it out of the way.”
During his 1527-game career *Gomdrol has batted .306 and collected 1659 hits, 300 home runs and 891 RBIs.
