Dietary History

On Day 31 of Season 3, Bates had a yummy reaction to a Peanut and gained one whole star rating. Before this day, Bates had never consumed protein in his entire life. When asked about how he felt about the change at a press conference, Bates stared vacantly and reported that "Mooney [Doctor] has [put him] on a steady diet of protein shakes to see if [he will] improve [his] batting." [citation needed]

Branding disputes

After Lin Manuel Miranda's Hamilton was released on Dlisney+, Bates has begun to insist that he be announced to the plate as "Elijah!" the same way the ensemble says "Eliza." The Moist Talkers Coaches told him to get a couple more hits and they would think about it.[1] At present, Bates does not receive any announcement when walking to the plate.
