Bevan Underbuck is a pitcher in Shadows for the Baltimore Crabs, and has been with the team since the Season 10 elections. Underbuck previously played for the Hawai'i Fridays and Breckenridge Jazz Hands.
Official League Records
At the end of Season 3, Underbuck joined the Hawai'i Fridays after the Jazz Hands were awarded with the Highway Robbery blessing, which "steals the best player in the league." As a result, Nagomi Mcdaniel left the Fridays and was replaced by Underbuck, who was chosen at random from the Jazz Hands roster.
Underbuck finished their Season 4 debut with the Fridays by stealing home.
On Season 6, Day 91, Underbuck was caught in a feedback loop with Seattle Garages pitcher Ron Monstera. However, because the Fridays roster was Soundproof, a feedback swap did not occur. Instead, the Game Log reported: "Reality begins to flicker...but Bevan Underbuck resists!"

Underbuck is a scrappy underdog who always gives 110%, but given their utter lack of talent, that doesn't amount to much. Their previous team's coaching staff believed that if Underbuck could dial it up to 143%, they'd have a real shot at The Underleagues. Underbuck's parents were known to be good friends with the Jazz's ownership, and major donors to the Breckenridge Jazz Hands Charitable Trust.
Underbuck is also an impressive jazz flautist.
Possession by Landry Violence
In semi-finals of postseason Season 2, an arrangement was made with the Hades Tigers to have Landry Violence possess Underbuck for a little help in beating the Pies. While in this state, he was referred to as Bevan Violence and switched to he/him pronouns. While Underbuck struggled to contain this newfound power, in the bottom of the fifth inning of Day 105 he hit an unprecedented 3-run homer.
Underbuck is renowned for being one of the few Blaseball players to have of a Landry Violence possession alive, though not entirely whole. Since then, Underbuck has been known to simply stand in a corner and stare blankly at the ground as if waiting for something. When asked about the legendary homer in a postgame interview, they had to say "I have been into the soul of Violence, and it has been into me. Look upon my marks, and tell me that there is salvation in our future." They also became significantly hotter.
Trade to the Hawai'i Fridays
After Underbuck's trade to the Fridays, their former fugue state seemed to have loosened, fueled by the soft ocean breeze, abundance of frosty beverages, and the ability to "jam" with fellow musicians James Mora and Stevenson Heat at the team's cookouts. Although they still displayed traces of their dark past at times, they were helped by Terrell Bradley, who pledged to be sure that "his kid makes it through all this just fine." During their time in Hawai'i, Underbuck also started practicing the traditinoal Hawai'ian flute, the hano.
Trade to the Crabs
After being traded to the Crabs, Underbuck pitched the team's only win of Season 11, and is the first and only pitcher in ILB history to have a confirmed win in The Big Leagues. Details about the game are sparse, though teammates report that Underbuck "dialed it up to 173%"
Post-Descension, Underbuck has embraced their status as a crepuscular creature and retreated into the Crabs' shadows. They act as a liaison between the team's active roster and their bullpen. According to Underbuck, the shadow roster is "pretty nice, usually," and that "[they're] teaching me to be rude. I'm rude now. Sorry." Underbuck has been seen with fellow shadows player and alleged sorceress Enid Marlow, who is reportedly helping them embrace their abilities as a medium, and is teaching them dark magic.
