Following the reading, Fans who had the Baltimore Crabs as their favorite team began construction on their new Ballparks.

Season 13

The three arcana drawn in Season 13 are as follows:

II The High Priestess
XV The Devil
XX Judgment

The Hawai'i Fridays, corresponding to II The High Priestess, are "GOING UNDER," and now have the modification Sinking Ship. The San Francisco Lovers, corresponding to XX Judgment, are "GETTING OVER," and now have the seasonal modification Base Dealing. The Lovers' lineup has also "been optimized," with their batting rotation taking on a new order.

Following the reading, Fans of all teams besides the Baltimore Crabs began contributing towards the construction of their Ballparks, with many teams completing funding in mere minutes. The Crabs were offered options for Renovations to improve their ballpark.

Season 14

The three arcana drawn in Season 14 are as follows:

Fool
III The Empress

The reading for Season 14 was titled WYATT MASON, OVER. The Tokyo Lift, corresponding to XI Strength, received the modification Receiver for Wyatt Quitter. Similarly, the Boston Flowers, corresponding to III The Empress, received the modification Receiver for Moses Mason. Fans have noted that both Wyatt Quitter and Moses Mason are survivors of the Wyatt Masoning. The arcana Fool corresponds to the Baltimore Crabs, the winners of Season 13, however, the emoji representing Fool appeared to change several times before the reading, sometimes showing the emojis for the Atlantis Georgias and Core Mechanics, but often showing the joystick emoji of Real Game Band, a team who only played during the inaugural Coffee Cup tournament.
