23-year-old Barliman J. Urcullu sent shock waves through Tolkien Baseball last week with an eye-popping performance that brought him the Mordor Conference Player of the Week Award.
A newcomer to the league, Urcullu made the establishment sit up and take notice, punishing opposing pitchers with a .550 average, 11 hits in 20 at-bats, 4 home runs and 6 runs batted in.
Where the Dunharrow Devils right fielder goes from here, only the baseball gods know for sure, but Urcullu certainly made his mark last week.
This season Urcullu is batting at a .500 clip with 4 home runs and 6 RBIs.
