All blaseball lore is collaborative and the developers encourage “a ‘Many Worlds’ interpretation...that leaves room for everyone.” Every respectful interpretation of a character is equally valid; there is no canon except what's on the blaseball website itself. Below are some of the most common character basics which you can use as building blocks, springboards to bounce off of, or ignore in favor of an entirely new vision!
in addition to weekly Election trades, there were two Ballpark modifications which could alter our roster over the course of a week. If a pitcher gave up more than ten runs during a home game, the Fax Machine would swap them out for the best pitcher from our inactive players (the Shadows.) If we got shut out at home, the batter with the lowest star rating would be swapped out with the best batter from the shadows.
A regular person from a strange dimension where he played something called "baseball" until he was recruited (through a wormhole) to play for the Houston Spies. A loveable disaster.
A normal, non-bloodthirsty human. Definitely not a vampire.
Adult Dilsney Fan and makeup vlogger, Conrad kept a ghostly connection with Scrap Murphy after his incineration.
A professional chef whose pre-game ritual is "fist-fighting the sea." In season 8 Patty pitched the first recorded Perfect Game, finding the 9-Blood Blagonball.
Black butch engineer and trade school attendee. Mullen Of All Trades.
Divorced dad and co-host of the "Steely Dads" podcast. Were-owl.
Non-binary Jewish punk and anarchist, member of a DIY band called "The Base Stealerz."
Red-hot genderfluid merfolk. Ey found the 3-Blood Blagonball after stealing second, then third, then home.
Roamin' clone of Hawaii Fridays player Evelton Mcblase, Eve transed her gender (good for her!) A cartoonishly evil scientist whose "evil" is usually fairly innocuous.
Bigender gorgon streamer and strikeout queen.
Former captain of the Boston Flowers, has since played for the Miami Dale and Hawaii Fridays. A vampire.
Former theater kid from Kansas City with dreams of performing on the big stage. And really isn't all the world a stage?
"Teddy," a former aspiring novelist now with the soul of a literal pitching machine. It is always striving to accelerate blaseballs to terminal velocity.
Currently this is only players who have seen active play. Some of our shadows are unlikely to play but still have possible lore. Feel free to ask around about them in the Discord!
Trans half-ghost pirate, still trying to prove herself after replacing beloved team captain Dominic Marijuana. Swapped into the shadows.
Dr. Oscar Vaughan, DDS is a dentist from the material plane who enjoys gardening with his husband. Currently Shadowed.
Harpy wrestler turned magician with a natural talent and a love for the spotlight. First Born from the Field of Eggs (we don't know if that means anything either.)
Albert has spent most of its life in the shadows, with only a brief stint pitching after being swapped in by a Fax Machine in season 17. He might be a stink bug.
Known almost exclusively as "Lil Pitchy," it was added to the roster when a Fax Machine swap meant that all of our active pitchers were "Elsewhere" and unable to pitch. Pitchy gave up ten runs in its very first game and was sent to the shadows in exchange for Teddy Cerv, who also quickly became Pitchy's parental figure.
