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!"

Box of Bevan Underbuck Files
- Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-73.842 and start reading...
Bevan Underbuck is a Late Cretaceous, 72-million-year-old, bird-like dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur. The holotype specimen was discovered in 1993 by 14-year-old fossil hunter York Silk. The skeleton that Silk discovered was approximately 95 percent complete. Because of its completeness, it has been compared to the 'Rlosetta Stone' that enabled archaeologists to translate Egyptian hieroglyphics. The completeness and undistorted qualities of the bones were critical in helping scientists further understand the dinosaur-bird link.
Research indicated that Bevan may have had mutually opposable first and third fingers and a forelimb maneuverability that would allow the hand to reach its mouth. This would have given the animal the ability to "hold" food in its front limbs and place it in its mouth, in a similar manner to some modern-day small mammals. However, Bevan lacked the ability to bring their arms past a suborbital position, resulting in them being a little bit terrible at Blaseball.
After being wrangled into a Jazz Hands uniform, Bevan performed admirably for a 72-million-year-old, bird-like dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur. Indeed, despite lacking the maneuverability to throw a ball or swing a bat, Bevan managed to play the flute very well. Furthermore, like all theropods, Bevan could not pronate their hands, and thus, was physically incapable of doing jazz hands. Research into if this played a role in their eventual expulsion from the team has been inconclusive.
Trade to the Fridays
When the call for the trade to the Hawai'i Fridays was made, Bevan was once again put through the arduous process of receiving a new uniform for the team. The Fridays were happy to welcome their latest addition, though they did note that the climate did not seem to agree with their new dromaeosaurid theropod teammate. Bevan did notably gain an ally with fellow theropod Fletcher Yamamoto, despite their evolutionary separation of 72 million years.
Trade to the Crabs
Once Bevan was traded to the Crabs to ascend, their jazz handlers declared that they "are not getting Bevan into another uniform" and promptly quit on the spot.
