26-year-old Dejathor Perom sent shock waves through Tolkien Baseball last week with an eye-popping performance that brought him the Shire Conference Player of the Week Award.
A newcomer to the league, Perom made the establishment sit up and take notice, punishing opposing pitchers with a .452 average, 14 hits in 31 at-bats, 4 home runs and 7 runs batted in.
Where the Rivendell Royals right fielder goes from here, only the baseball gods know for sure, but Perom certainly made his mark last week.
On the season, Perom is batting .308 with 8 home runs and 15 RBIs. He has played in 26 games.
