The Extraordinary Tales from Elyrian Baseball




Elyrian Baseball Radio Network (EBRN) and Play by Play host:
Ernest Stickford aka Stix

Stix
: Welcome to the first installment of Elyrian Baseball Radio, I will be your host and guide through the country's premier sport, baseball.

Before we jump into the baseball side of this story, I would like to introduce to you our wonderful country of Elyria!


-----------

Elyria is an environmentally stunning and socially progressive nation located south of the equator and to the east of the Republic of Brahmann and to the northwest of the United Commonwealth of The Tarim Islands and South Winchester. It has a well-earned reputation as a pristine gem of nature, seemingly untouched by the human hand. The undulating white-capped mountains and emerald green forests seem to extend all the way to the internationally-famous golden beaches and swaying palm trees at which the Southern Ashington Sea laps.

The truth is more complex. Commuter trains carefully connect the massive population of the country to the hub of the country, Clayton, whose sleek metal and glass towers rise like mountains. The population, while environmentally conscious, has also managed to carve out a chunk of the land for its own advancement. It is from the capital that the nation's resources, information, and trends flow to the rest of the country. But despite the seeming air of indifference given to organized sports by most, there exists an unquenchable spirit to compete, to succeed, to become legend.

From the golden beaches to the mountains, this spirit has been heard in the crack of wood upon leather, from professional teams to two kids who desire to achieve their dreams. At last, the government has decided to fund a national baseball league, the nation's favorite pastime, to compete in international competitions. Without further ado, introducing Elyria!


Elyria is best described as an island nation. However, most Elyrians live on the largest island, which is referred to by locals as the mainland, due to its size and role as a population and commercial center for the country.

The mainland is mostly flat grassland and plains, though forests and hilly areas exist and are generally scattered throughout the island. Running north to south are the Harmony Mountains, named for Mt. Harmony near the capital city of Clayton. There is a smaller range on the east side of the island called the Soulard Mountains named after the only city around them. The mountain range squishes all the cities into the central and southern half of the mainland into central and southern geographic regions, and was once home to dozens of active volcanoes. However, no eruption has occurred in the Harmony Mountains in over 800 years, and the range is believed to be inactive. The ancient volcanic activity on the mainland (and on many of Elyria’s smaller islands, as well) resulted in mineral deposits from which Elyrian miners have extracted gold, silver, and other valuable materials for export.

Two notable exceptions to the mainland's grassy majority are the Greentree Forest and Western Desert. The Greentree Forest is more of a jungle than a temperate forest, and is widely considered the most dangerous region in Elyria due to its large numbers of wild carnivorous species, some of which would be considered "mythical" by foreigners. Within the Greentree Forest is the city of Melrose, located along the banks of the Magali River and home to the largest population of non-human in the nation. A number of more typical temperate forests surround the Greentree Forest itself.

The Western Desert is (as one might expect) a dry region located in a small pocket of flat land surrounded by the Harmony Mountains near the Western coast. The only major population center in the Western Desert is the small city of Tamarac, located in what could be considered by some as a cooler oasis.

Travel

Travelling to Elyria is generally easy, as most methods of interregional travel are available to visitors from outside the Rachana Lands. Most international flights to Elyria arrive at Tamarac’s Harmony International Airport, but other regularly-used airports such as Clayton’s Royal International and Ladue’s Friendship Heights International are easy to find flights to. However, it should be noted that pilots flying to and from Elyria internationally must receive additional certification due to the nature of Elyria and much of the Rachana Lands. Because of this additional requirement for pilots, some airlines do charge extra to cover the training fees.

Another common way of reaching the island is via sea. Emmaus’s seaport is among the most active in the Rachana Lands, and isn't located far from the heart of Elyria’s largest city.

Once in Elyria, there are many other options for travel. Rental cars, taxis, and busses are easy to find in the larger cities such as Bonhomme, Elyria, and Melrose, though one might notice that most vehicles are electric-powered. But while cars and busses are regularly used in some cities, there are also several in which their use is limited to emergency services (most notably in Alameda and Oakdale’s Old City district) or is totally banned (as is the case in Soulard).

However, the limited use of automobiles is balanced out by the proliferation of trains for travel between and within cities. Some of the more prominent and historical lines (such as the East Winslow-Clayton Express) still use steam-powered engines or high-speed trains designed to mimic the classical appearance of an Elyrian train. Subways are also a common feature in Elyrian cities, spreading underground to connect many places of interest for foreign tourists. Soulard is the only city where buses, and trains/subways are unavailable.

But in the end, the most common method of travel in Elyria is one's own two feet (or whatever you have to walk on). Few Elyrians drive or use public transportation unless they have to, preferring to take in the clean air on their way from place-to-place.


Culture & Society

Language

Traditionally, Elyrians have spoken in their native Elyritongue which is common throughout the Rachana Lands. However, since the emergence of Elyria into the international community, laws have been passed requiring citizens to be capable of speaking multiple languages. The most common non-Elyrian language is easily English, which is spoken by approximately two-thirds of the population. It should be noted that some English words have been altered by Elyrians to better fit the equine majority, as the use of "everyelyri", "anyelyri", "baseball", and other such words are modifications of the more standard English words. Mastery of many different languages is especially common among Unicorns, and as they are generally the ones more involved in business, are easy enough to find for foreign visitors. Numerous translating services exist throughout Elyria, and airport bookstores generally contain a plethora of multilingual dictionaries for purchase.


Food

As one might expect from a nation dominated by a species of herbivores, many traditional Elyrian dishes are vegetarian in nature. The proliferation of such food is also furthered by the general lack of agriculture for the purpose of raising up animals for the slaughter. To hurt another living creature is, to many Elyrians, simply unthinkable. However, Elyria is not only inhabited by humans, but also by griffons, dragons, and equines (among others). Restaurants do exist to cater to these non-human species, and do serve a wide variety of meats imported from outside of the region. That being said, it would be unwise to be seen in public eating a hamburger made from beef or any other meat product as many Elyrians are disgusted by such foods. This can make finding food difficult in smaller cities and in the nicer areas of the larger ones. A general tip would be: if your waiter looks like a herbivore, don't ask them for a cheeseburger or steak. Elyrian cafes are fairly creative with what they can do with non-meat products, and the bread and pastries are oftentimes better than what you might find in other nations.

Drink in Elyria also differs significantly from other nations around the multiverse, as the most common alcoholic beverage is hard cider, which can be found at virtually every bar, pub, and restaurant. Ponies generally refrain from drinking too heavily, but other non-human sapients such as griffons are known to consume vast quantities of alcohol in a single sitting. We advise our human readers to graciously decline any drinking challenges offered, as one is unlikely to win, and drunk griffons can be notoriously temperamental. Beer is a distant second to cider, in terms of both popularity and availability, though bars and eateries which cater to human tourists will often keep domestic Elyrian brands in stock.

Arturo Jaimes Wins MVP in South Division Loss to North Division: Despite his best efforts, game MVP Arturo Jaimes's South Division All-Stars couldn't overcome the powerful North Division squad in the annual All-Star Game.

"We tried our best, but did you see the talent in that lineup?" Jaimes was quoted as saying after the game. "I'm honored to be named MVP of the game. To stand among the greatest stars of the game and be declared the best among them is truly an honor, even if we didn't end up winning the game. I had fun, and I think the fans did as well."

The North Division All-Stars triumphed in the game by a final score of 6-3 in this year's game at Webster & Mitchell Ballpark.

End of season standings, league winner and awards coming up next

Sorry for the bad picture, I am too lazy to copy and paste 3 separate pictures for one box score. Typing out each inning is a drag for me as well. I wish there was a way to either condense this screen or make it easier to get all of the vital information without just copying ad pasting the html format on the browser.

Award Winners

Eric Daoust Claims 1914 EBL Batting Title: Eric Daoust said his age of 36 is just simply a number.

The number he's more concerned with is .358, which is his season batting average, which was tops in the Elyria Baseball League and won him the batting title.

"As long as I can keep my average up, I think I can still play this game," the right fielder said.

He certainly played and contributed on the year, with 64 hits, 12 doubles, 2 triples and 1 home run for the year. In 45 games Daoust totaled 30 RBIs and scored 21 runs.

EBL Great Glove Award Selections Announced: Any pitcher would love to have these defenders on the field backing them up. They are the best glovemen in the Elyria Baseball League for 1914. This year's Great Glove Award winners are:

Pitcher
Luke Knudson (Radford Rebels )

Catcher
Allen Hodges (Ladue Stars)

First Baseman
Zach Bushard (Clayton Blue Knights)

Second Baseman
Matt Tomczak (Dramaga Grasshoppers)

.318/.411/.471, 170 AB, 3 HR, 171 wRC+, 2.6 WAR

Shortstop
Matt Gambrell (Ladue Stars)
.341/.471/.470, 164 AB, 4 SB, 161 wRC+, 2.7 WAR

Left Fielder
Eric Daoust (Clayton Blue Knights)
.358/.413/.464, 179 AB, 1 HR, 1 SB, 165 wRC+, 1.6 WAR

Center Fielder
Eddie Bacon (Verdenne Victory)
.335/.379/.515, 194 AB, 11 SB, 167 wRC+, 2.2 WAR

Right Fielder
Bill Contino (Ladue Stars)
.342/.362/.587, 196 AB, 2 HR, 30 SB, 191 wRC+, 2.2 WAR

Contino Receives EBL Rookie of the Year Award: All the votes have been tabulated and the recipient of the prestigious Elyria Baseball League Rookie of the Year Award is Bill Contino of Ladue.

This gifted first-year performer won the honors by batting .342 with a .362 OBP. In 46 games this year, the right fielder laced 67 hits in 196 at-bats, hit 2 home runs, drove in 32 runs and scored 34 times.

He received 8 first place votes, as a unanimous winner. Matt Gambrell of the Ladue Stars finished second in voting, while Eddie Bacon of the Verdenne Victory finished third.

Player - Team - First Place - Total Points
Bill Contino - Ladue Stars - 8 - 40
Matt Gambrell - Ladue Stars - 0 - 20
Eddie Bacon - Verdenne Victory - 0 - 8

Elyria Baseball League Chooses Best Manager: Just about any objective fan of the Ladue Stars would have to admit that Mike Riggall is worthy of the Elyria Baseball League Manager of the Year Award. But it wasn't that way at first.

"In the beginning it was rocky," noted Riggall, "The fans really gave it to me. Somewhere along the line we just began putting things together, picking up a win here and there, and morphing into a team--not just a bunch of guys doing their own thing."

Riggall paced the Stars to a first place finish in the Wicker League North Division. Ladue wound up the season with a 32-16 record.

As for next year, Riggall said, "We're always tweaking things, trying to improve the club. You don't rest after winning awards. I'm here to make the Stars a perennial powerhouse."

Radford Rebels Hurler EBL's Premier Pitcher: The Radford Rebels have a rising superstar or maybe even a budding Hall-of-Famer in the making.
It's Luke Knudson, this year's Elyria Baseball League Pitcher of the Year Award selection. This blossoming hurler wowed fans, peers and sportswriters with a fabulous performance.

Knudson compiled a 6-5 record in 12 starts, tallied 64 strikeouts in 101.2 innings and recorded a 1.86 ERA. Other clubs managed only a .187 batting average against him.

He received 7 first place votes out of a possible 8. Jason Zoeller of the Olivette Mallards finished second in voting with 1 first place vote, while Jesse Scoggins of the Old Greysburg Shockers finished third.

Player - Team - First Place - Total Points
Luke Knudson - Radford Rebels - 7 - 52
Jason Zoeller - Olivette Mallards - 1 - 32
Jesse Scoggins - Old Greysburg Shockers - 0 - 24
Marc Galaway - Verdenne Victory - 0 - 18
Chris Bearden - Olivette Mallards - 0 - 4
Colin McKee - Ladue Stars - 0 - 3
Mitch Simmons - Melrose Park Racers - 0 - 3

Contino Selected EBL's Top Player: Bill Contino, the Ladue right fielder, certainly made an impression on Elyria Baseball League pitchers this past season. He punished them for 67 hits in 196 at-bats, 18 doubles, 12 triples, 2 home runs, and 32 RBIs and scored 34 times.

That standout hitting earned him the Elyria Baseball League Most Valuable Player Award for 1914.

He received 6 first place votes out of a possible 8. Matt Gambrell of the Ladue Stars finished second in voting with 1 first place vote, while Paul Bailo of the Dramaga Grasshoppers finished third.

Player - Team - First Place - Total Points
Bill Contino - Ladue Stars - 6 - 101
Matt Gambrell - Ladue Stars - 1 - 64
Paul Bailo - Dramaga Grasshoppers - 0 - 64

Sorry about the blitzed season and sloppy format. I think when it comes down to it, I have a good idea of the information I want to show on here, but I don't have the patients to type out every stat and every game recap like some other posters on here. I also like to whiz through seasons and only watch and do cosmetic changes to the league and such. No guarantees on the format changing in the future. I don't have much time to post either so I try to find quick ways to show of the league. I hope you all will stay interested in my league through minimal effort on my part. Sorry

There's no right or wrong way to do it. Heck, I'm getting ready to change my approach this new season that has just begun in my WPK, going back to a more week by week rather than series by series and game by game approach. Less detail about each game for my Denver Brewers, more flavor from around the league.
I say do it your way and have fun and others will enjoy whatever you choose to share here.
