A celebratory mood filled the air as the Isengard Raiders closed out the season with a 4-3 victory over the Old Forest Merry Fellows at Shire Greens Stadium to capture the Return of the King Series, 4-3.
Giving the Merry Fellows credit for a hard-fought series, Raiders players said they believed throughout the postseason that their “destiny” was to be crowned Tolkien Baseball champions.
“We felt like this was our year all season long,” said shortstop Ragnar *Stonecutter III, who was named series MVP. “It was our destiny to win it and we did.”
It was the 3rd in franchise history. During the Mordor Conference Troll Division regular season Isengard put up a 101-61 record and finished first.
“They’re the champions and they deserve it,” said a dejected Old Forest manager Thigol Elruldor. “We played good ball, they just played better than us.”
