Notable Events

The Discipline Era (Season 1 to Season 11)

Season Date Event Description
4 98 Flowers batter Morrow Doyle was incinerated by a Rogue Umpire. Doyle was facing Lee Davenport of the Unlimited Tacos, the same pitcher they were facing when they hit the Grand Unslam as a member of the Charleston Shoe Thieves. Doyle was replaced with Inez Owens.
4 99 The Flowers faced the Unlimited Tacos in the first game ever to cross the one hour time limit, triggering Spillover. The game ended 65 minutes in, after 22 scoreless innings and tied 1-1 for the last 2 innings.


In the bottom of the 24th, Inez Owens, the replacement for Morrow Doyle (who had been incinerated in the previous game), was driven in by a Nic Winkler double, beginning a Shame period for the Tacos. The Flowers loaded the bases for Beck Whitney, who took hit a ground out to NaN, ending the game 2-1 Flowers.


This broke the record for the longest game in blaseball history, replacing a 21-inning game between the Flowers and the Dallas Steaks on Day 21 of Season 4.

6 99 Heading into Day 98, the New York Millennials (51-46) led the Flowers (49-48) by two games for the last playoff spot. After a Flowers win on Day 98 and back-to-back losses on Days 98 and 99 for the Millennials, Boston's fate would be decided by their final game against the Breckenridge Jazz Hands.


The Flowers quickly fell behind 5-0, and the Jazz Hands repeatedly scored in response to early Flowers' rallies. Entering the bottom of the 8th inning, the Flowers trailed 11-5; with two runners on, Gloria Bugsnax hit a three-run homer to cut the deficit in half. In the bottom of the 9th, an RBI single from Castillo Turner and a 2-run double from newly-acquired Hahn Fox tied the game at 11.


Finally, in the bottom of the 10th inning, with Bugsnax on first, Moses Mason hit a two-run home run; in doing so, the Flowers simultaneously shamed the Jazz Hands, eliminated the Millennials from playoff contention, and clinched the final playoff spot.


This home run would later become known as The Day 99 Miracle, although the name has also been attributed to the rare individual respective achievements of Nic Winkler and Jacob Haynes both stealing bases in the game.

8 61 In a game against the New York Millennials, Mills pitcher Patty Fox pitched a perfect game against the Flowers, preventing any Flowers from reaching base.


This would be the first perfect game in recorded Blaseball history, resulting in the subsequent discovery of the 9-blood Blagonball. When asked, the Flowers were reported to just be happy to be included.


The Expansion Era (Season 12 to Season 24)

Season Date Event Description
14 102 Owen Picklestein, the worst pitcher on the Flowers at the time, was attacked by a Consumer on Day 101. The following day Picklestein held the Tokyo Lift to just 2 Runs until the top of the 8th Inning. The Flowers were eliminated from the Postseason after losing on Day 102, and subsequently Picklestein was sent to the Shadows in the Election.
18 83 On Day 83 Chorby Short broke the perfect game strikeout record with a total of 25 strikeouts. At the time Short had the Overperforming Modification twice. The opposing pitcher, Rafael Davids had also thrown a perfect game until the bottom of the 9th inning, and was ultimately shamed in the 10th inning.
21 81 During the events of Season 21, Gloria Bugsnax stole the Chorby's Soul II item from Chorby Soul IV. This item was extremely eDense causing the Flowers to plummet to the bottom of the Depth Chart, reaching the lowest point on Day 99 of the Season.
23 9 In the Season 22 Election the Boston Flowers won the Traitor Crates Blessing giving several members of the Team items with the Traitor Modification. Baldwin Breadwinner had also roamed to the Flowers in the Election due to the Super Roamin' Fifth Base item. The number of Traitor items on the team caused the Super Roamin' Fifth Base to be traded between teammates 15 times before the end of Season 23 Day 9. Chorby Short drew the short straw, and roamed away from the team along with the Base.
24 98 The Flowers scored the final Runs of the Expansion Era against Chet Takahashi of the Houston Spies. The Flowers had scored 10 Runs in Black Hole(Black Hole) Weather putting the scores to 1-0 in favor of the Spies. In the bottom of the Ninth Nic Winkler hit a Single sending Jacob Haynes and Wade Howe home, and shaming the Spies.
24 99 At the last possible moment before the League was Nullified by Black Hole(Black Hole) the Flowers entered the Vault and became Forced. They shared this achievement with the Hades Tigers, who entered the Vault at the same time.

COMMUNITY REPORTS
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

Team Overview

Each subsection of the Team Overview section will provide a brief summary of details for the relevant area. For complete details see the linked Main Articles.

Home City

Main article: Boston

The Boston Flowers hail from Boston, Massachusetts, a city that lives in harmony with nature be it a sentient garden, rifts in space-time, or just lots and lots of plants. Some areas of the city feature overgrown ruins, places where trees and vines intertwine with modern buildings, or non-Euclidean Fens.

Boston is a forever changing ecosystem that creates mystery and adventure. One day you may see an empty field of flowers, the next a thicket of trees. Nature in Boston is benevolent and helps the people of Boston when possible.

The people of Boston are focused on their ability to grow and thrive. They wish to live and be happy and will do what it takes to protect that way of life. They are also very friendly and community focused. The history of Boston has made its people resilient, and they will always rebuild from tragedy and loss.


Stadium

Main article: Boston Garden

The Boston Flowers home games are played in a stadium known as The Garden. The Garden is an unusual Blaseball stadium, given that it is absolutely and completely overgrown with plant life. It is also a living sentient being that protects those it cares about.


History of Boston

Main article: Boston Flowers/History

Throughout history Boston has gone through a lot. Below is a brief summary of the history of Boston as it is currently understood.


The Dunkies Years & The Big Dunk
In the past the Dunkies Donuts Corporation was voted in as the mayor of Boston and used their power and influence to take over the city. During their reign they mined for the natural deposits of donuts and coffee. The Dunkies Donuts Corporation greed eventually inspired them to synthesize coffee beans from outside of the universe, an attempt which ultimately ended in failure in what was known as "The Big Dunk". The most notable side effect of the Big Dunk was large numbers of space-time rifts opening throughout the city leading to alternate dimensions and versions of Boston.

Post-Big Dunk
Eventually the citizens of Boston recovered from the events of the Big Dunk, and the city began to exist in unity with nature. Plants of all kinds strung themselves up buildings and across streets, the Boston Garden had gained sentience. The citizens of Boston became focused on their own ability to grow and thrive, and gained a culture of resilience.

The Second Dunk & End of the Expansion Era
Due to events occurring in Blaseball during Season 21 the city became threatened again, firstly was the event known as the Second Dunk where the city was plunged deep into Immateria. This event began a chain reaction where the alternate realities connected to Boston via the space-time rifts either began to directly work together or began closing the rifts in an attempt to protect themselves.

The events of Season 24 was the most dangerous period in Boston's known history. The city was at risk of incineration by the Supernova Eclipse or Nullification by the Black Hole (Black Hole). A significant number of the rifts were closed during this time-period due to the existential threats at this time.

Neither incineration nor complete Nullification would ultimately come to pass due to Boston becoming Forced into the Vault, thus avoiding being completely Nullified.

Post-Expansion Era
This is the current time period, and no major historical events have occurred.

Information on the current state of Boston and its residents can be found on the Boston page.
