In the Shadows
- Paul Barnes - (Season 3, Day 5; replaced by Sandford Garner)
- Miguel Javier - (Season 3, Day 11; replaced by Kennedy Meh)
- Sigmund Castillo (Season 6, Day 61; replaced by Alexander Horne)
- Kennedy Meh (Season 9, Day 98; replaced by NaN)
- Due to interference from the opening The Book of Blaseball, history around the end of Season 1 is vague and ephemeral. However, blaseball historians have collectively agreed that on Season 1 Day 98, the San Francisco Lovers held a record of 38 Wins and 59 Losses and placed 4th in the Lawful Good Division. Thanks to postseason artifacts discovered, we do know that the Lovers did not make playoffs.
- The San Francisco Lovers received no blessings at the end of Season 1.
- The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 29 Wins and 70 Losses. They placed last in the Lawful Good Division, the Good League, and the Internet Blaseball League overall. However, they had a good time out there.
- The Lovers were blessed with performance enhancing demons despite having 0% of the vote. Speculation on the nature of the demons suggests that they may have been Succubi, lured to the Lovers due to a kinship with the philosophies of the team.
- Kichiro Guerra was also blessed with BLOODLUST, which manifested as a burning desire to bring True Love back to the world.
- The Lovers were granted the fourth strike by decree.
- The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 59 Wins and 40 Losses. They placed top of the Lawful Good Division and joint second in the Good League overall alongside the Charleston Shoe Thieves. They progressed to the playoffs, finishing in the top four after beating the Charleston Shoe Thieves 3 games to 1 in the quarter finals and losing out to the New York Millennials 3 games to 1 in the semis.
- Paul Barnes and Miguel Javier were incinerated by rogue umpires. They are succeeded by Sandford Garner and Kennedy Meh respectively.
- Kichiro Guerra suffered an allergic reaction when swallowing a stray peanut.
- The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 49 Wins and 50 Losses.
- At the end of the season Kichiro Guerra and Parker Meng were accidentally swapped with their alternate dimension counterparts. This has caused strife within the team since, in her dimension, Mirror Parker was the captain of the Lovers. She is currently competing against Knight Triumphant for their seat, by seeing who has the bigger, better, and more extensive polycule.
- Yosh Carpenter was blessed with an extra set of elbows, while Sandford Garner was blessed with TWO extra sets. This helped increase the pitching lineup of the Lovers drastically while simultaneously making Garner a household name among fans.
- The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 65 Wins and 34 Losses. They placed top of the Lawful Good Division. They progressed to the playoffs, finishing in the top four after beating the Dallas Steaks in the quarter finals and losing out to the Chicago Firefighters in the semis.
- During a game against the Hawai'i Fridays, reverberations caused by The Wave reached dangerous levels and Lovers batter Don Mitchell started to Reverberate. He is now one with time and space, freely able to travel between this dimension and the prohibition dimension.
- Don Mitchell swallowed a stray peanut while returning from the prohibition dimension for a post-season game against the Chicago Firefighters. It was apparently so delicious that it increased his blaseball skills across the board. Sclientists are still trying to recreate the event.
- The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 53 Wins and 46 Losses. They placed third in the Wild High Division and advanced to the playoffs. The Lovers lost to the Breckenridge Jazz Hands in the first round, 3 games to 2.
- The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 55 Wins and 44 Losses, tying the Breckenridge Jazz Hands and the New York Millennials for second in the Wild High Division. Due to Divine Favor, the Lovers finished third in the division. The Lovers advanced to the playoffs, defeating the Breckenridge Jazz Hands and the Baltimore Crabs to advance to the finals, where they lost to the Mexico City Wild Wings 3 games to 1.
- Theo King swallowed a peanut and had an allergic reaction.
- Some of Helga Moreno's hitting ability was stolen by NaN of the Unlimited Tacos in the Blooddrain. Later, some of her pitching ability was stolen by Montgomery Bullock of the Baltimore Crabs.
- Kennedy Meh siphoned blood from Lawrence Horne of the Mexico City Wild Wings, stealing some defensive ability.
- During the Season 7 Election, the Lovers received the Headliners blessing, which arranged their lineup in order of their idolatry.
- During the Season 9 Election, the Lovers were subjected to Targeted Shame, but protected by the Wild High Fifth Base Bubble.
- The Lovers also won the Feel the Love blessing, which changed the entire team's blood type to Love, and made everyone on the team especially Charming.
- During the Season 10 election, the Lovers won the Popular by Association blessing, sending Milo Brown to their shadows in exchange for Bontgomery Mullock (created from a mishap involving the newly-ascended Baltimore Crabs' Montgomery Bullock being traded to multiple teams simultaneously), and the Subleague Swap blessing, moving to the Mild High division in exchange for the Hades Tigers.
The Long Romantic Walk on the Blaseball Field (Season 2, Day 78)
- During the third game of the series against the New York Millennials, The Lovers secured an unprecedented 18-4 home victory and secured the clean sweep after walking nearly every single point. Rumors that Millennials pitcher Fynn Doyle had been seduced or blinded by love remain unconfirmed. When interviewed after the game, Lovers grand-slam hitter Sigmund Castillo had this to say: "I'm just happy to be out there with my favorite people."
Training Weights Stolen (Season 4, Day 27)
- During the third game of a series against the Charleston Shoe Thieves, the Lovers pulled out a phenomenal 21-5 victory. Don Mitchell was voted the MVP, with a 3-run homer and a series of additional runs scored throughout. Team management reports hiding training weights within the players shoes, so once they were stolen their true power was unleashed - though this is as of yet, unconfirmed.
Lost in the Infinite Los Angeli (Season 5, Days 13-30)
Main Article: Lovers Lost In the Infinite Los Angeli
- Early in season 5, the Lovers found themselves unable to navigate the Infinite Cities and return to The Polyhedron. This resulted in many scheduling adjustments and many emergency games against the Unlimited Tacos. Eventually, the team was guided out by the Charleston Shoe Thieves. However, the time the Lovers spent in the Infinite Cities with the Tacos created a temporary fate link between the two teams, causing their victories and losses to continue to mirror each other's, regardless of their opponents, for the next 15 days of games.
Historic Double Shut-out (Season 8, Day 16)
- In the fourth match of a back-to-back series against the Chicago Firefighters, the two teams made Blaseball history with the first ever double shut-out. Due to Firefighters being Shamed in their prior Day 15 match against the Lovers, and starting Day 16 with -1 runs due to Shame Bubble, the game concluded with a score of -1-0 to the Lovers.

The San Francisco Lovers were founded due to the enthusiasm of their captain, Knight Triumphant—the only member of the original roster to have any previous Blaseball experience. The rest of the San Francisco Lovers original line-up for the team was sourced from Knight's expansive sprawling polyamorous relationships. The roster is currently made up of supportive partners, metamours, and allies eager to encourage Knight Triumphant to pursue their dreams.
Originally sponsored by Miguel Javier's Etsy store, the team ultimately decided to shun corporate sponsorship and are now instead sponsored by the feeling of seeing your partner again after having not seen them for a while. This sponsorship allowed the team to relocate to their current stadium, The PolyHedron.
- The team's highly variable success from season to season could be attributed to their habit of regularly updating their uniforms between seasons. Some of which have caused distractions to occur on field for both the Lovers and their opponents.
