Sunday, November 24th, 2041
He may have less experience than most of his Tolkien Baseball peers, but that didn’t slow Alrond *Hubbard, Jr. down at all in 2041.

At the age of 19, the Old Forest right fielder has been named the winner of the Shire Conference Sam Gamgee Batter.

He had a .395 batting average and a .469 on-base percentage this year. In 153 games he piled up 248 hits, 30 doubles, 3 triples, 46 home runs, 108 RBIs and 145 runs scored.

“I’m blown away by the season I was able to put together,” he said. “I’m looking forward to trying to do it all again next year.”

Duilin *Silverwolf of the Lake Town Archers finished second in voting, while Ferdinand *Puttifoot of the Bywater Bounders finished third.
