Francisco Preston/Rumor Registry
Francisco Preston has 5 Rumors written about so far.
A scrap of wrinkled parchment is inscribed in dark ink by the Augur's hand
A collection of these notes was located in a file cabinet within the Yellowstone National Park Ballpark offices, all sharing a similar handwriting and purpose. Each note describes a member of the Yellowstone Magic, in synchronicity with a known reality counterpart, but as a particular species of bird. It remains unclear why the Augur is scrying these particular ornithomancies and what purpose they may serve, but the findings are dutifully recorded and cataloged when new ones are discovered.
Scrying target: Francisco Preston (Magic lineup, Dad)
Ornithomantic assignation: greater rhea (Rhea americana) - large flightless ratite native to South America.
Appearance is consistent with expectations. A large bird nearly 5 feet tall, with tattered grey plumage bearing rich brown undertone. Exudes a very welcoming aura. Slight associated aroma of barbecue, flickering between hamburgers, hot dogs, and bratwurst. (and mustard)
Individual is otherwise difficult to identify in comparison to other rheas. This species is well known for its strong paternal drives, with male birds incubating and raising multiple clutches, and freely adopting any unattended chicks they may encounter. Individual in question strongly aligned with these characteristics! I confess, I have struggled to not refer to this individual as Dad throughout the writing of this report. Individual associates with other teammates in a protective manner, observably proud of their accomplishments and supportive during their struggles.
Migration status: nonmigratory (as of yet)
Ley line attunement: well done.
This one is a very solid, providing something akin to a foundation to the team. I do have my concerns regarding how the team might react should something happen-The parchment is burned beyond these words.
Checking in on Weatherman
Following the end of their first set in season 5, Preston was seen jogging from home plate to the pitcher's mound, offering a water bottle to the Flowers' pitcher, King Weatherman. Sources claim that Preston asked Weatherman if he'd like to talk for a few minutes off the field.
Preston has been unofficially quoted as saying, "Walk with me a sec here. The two of us should have a chat."
The two were then seen off the field some time later, with a birthday card discreetly folded into Weatherman's coat pocket and Preston carrying a hot dog. Some claim the two didn't discuss anything of consequence, others hold that Preston was checking to make sure Weatherman wasn't taking the team's rivalry with him personally. Regardless, the conversation is documented to have lasted less than thirty minutes, with both going their separate ways. When approached by fans, Preston is quoted as saying, "Weatherman's a tough opponent, and I look forward to playing against him again."Weatherman was not available for comment.
That's My Dad!

Bradley, affectionately known as “Dadley” by fans and Preston had been good friends for a long time due to the closeness between the two teams and the frequency of Friday Night Magic cookouts, but upon sharing a team they found themselves growing closer.
Bradley moved into a houseboat on one of Yellowstone’s many lakes and the two were often seen fishing together and riding around on Bradley’s jet ski. Up until Bradley’s arrival Preston had been the resident grill master for the Magic. Sources on the team have confirmed that they now share grill master duties, alternating who mans the grills during league siestas and post-game cookouts.
The two can often be seen late into the night sharing a beer around the campfire and rumors have surfaced that they like to spend long nights stargazing together. A source close to the team confirmed that much of the night is spent with Preston explaining to Bradley how the constellations that are visible in Yellowstone are different than those in the Hawain night sky.When asked to comment on their relationship, Preston said, “Terrell is a good splort. I’m glad to get a chance to play with him. We have a lot in common and it’s been great to have him around.” Bradley said this in response, “Preston is a good teammate. [Yellowstone] has been a big change from Hawai’i but Preston has been helpful making sure that I feel welcome here. We’ve got a good group of people here and I can’t wait to see what next season brings.”
