Early Life and Recruitment
Originally hailing from Moab, Utah, Bookbaby's path to blaseball stardom began when his parents perished in the Hellmouth eruption of XX09. Bookbaby kept out of trouble by studying finance while he made his way through the foster system. He eventually joined his mentor Cornelius Games's "blaseball team" front organization, then unnamed, as a trainee accountant. After earning his last name with skilled bookkeeping, he found himself thrust onto the mound in an attempt to live up to Games's high hopes. While with the Shoe Thieves, Bookbaby specialized in stealing platform pumps typical of the disco scene.
After the Season 3 finals, Bookbaby was caught in Tastycake Stadium trying to sneak off with the teams' cleats (and possibly sensitive financial information). He made a deal to play for the Pies in order to avoid prosecution. The Pies sent Kevin Dudley in exchange.
On Season 6, Day 21, Bookbaby was incinerated by a rogue umpire. It is widely believed that this was the result of Bookbaby mismanaging the Umpires’s pension fund, including light embezzlement. "Doh, ya got me," said Bookbaby, scratching his head sheepishly as the umpire's gaze fell upon him. "Easy come, easy go."
