Númenor may have come to an unfortunate end in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth, but that hasn’t stopped it from getting a baseball team in Solonor’s Groovy Computer Baseball League, also known as SGCBL or, simply, Tolkien Baseball. The Númenor Kings play in the Mordor Conference with the Weathertop Witch Kings, the Minas Morgul Slayers, the Dead Marshes Uruk-Hai, and other teams in the Orc, Goblin, and Troll Divisions.
Over in the Shire Conference’s Elf, Hobbit, and Dwarf Divisions, the Erebor Eagles, Lake Town Archers, Mirkwood Marauders, and other clubs do battle. The league playoffs open with the Fellowship Series before moving on to the semi-final Two Towers Series and the championship Return of the King Series, and the year-end awards include the Gandalf Pitcher of the Year trophy, the Aragorn MVP Award, and others.
