Box of Geepa Beanpot 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-60.613 and start reading...
“Geepa” Beanpot is an elderly ex-retiree who uses he/him pronouns.
He is known for his love of blaseball and his tendency to tell anyone who will listen about “back in the day”; topics of these rambling tangents include blaseball, --------, Chicago, firefighting, Firefighting, and beans, amongst other things.
Like all of us, he is from Chicago. His jersey number is 613.
Beanpot has not publicly shared much about his life before the Return of Blaseball, but it is known that prior to his retirement that he was a union organizer at ------- -----, and was a volunteer firefighter at the --- Station in downtown Chicago.
It is also believed that he participated in a blaseball league, and was once a star player known for his athleticism at third base and his ability to hit home runs. However, records remain unrecoverable, and if they were to be recovered, they would surely be redacted for everyone’s safety.
He is married, with several children and an unknown number of grandchildren, who he will praise at length. Further evidence of these relations has, of yet, not materialized, and a tendency to express pride in any younger person as if they were his own child or grandchild has been noted.
Beanpot was part of a dedicated group of Firefighters fans who would watch as many Firefighters games as they could manage. Beanpot worked as a strictly unofficial recordkeeper, maintaining a handwritten statistics record. While assessment of his work is difficult, especially regarding the ILB’s early seasons, there are those[who?] who will swear up and down that his numbers are the only ones they trust.
Beanpot claims he has ticket stubs for every single Firefighters home game since the Return of Blaseball, but this claim remains unverified by the City of Chicago Commission for Certification of True Splorts Fans. Anecdotal evidence suggests that he has, in fact, been present at every single Firefighters home game, with some other self-proclaimed “diehard” fans expressing disappointment that he is no longer present in the stands.
Beanpot replaced Carmelo Plums when she was incinerated on Season 19, Day 42. No physical recording of the event exists besides Beanpot’s final entry in his play-by-play log, reading PLUMS - IbRU, standing for “Incinerated by Rogue Umpire.”
Oral histories provided by eyewitnesses of the event conflict. Some claim Carmelo Plums threw herself in front of him to protect him from a rogue umpire when he vocally disagreed with a call from his usual spot in the stands; some say longtime Fire House employee Douglas fetched him when Plums was incinerated, as they played in the same recreational senior league.
Beanpot has not verified or dismissed any of these accounts. However, in interviews provided to the Chicago Blaseball Daily, he has expressed the sentiment that if anyone should participate in a “blood sport like Blaseball, it should be an old geezer like [him].”
While he struggles with the more intense physical aspects of firefighting, he maintains a steady presence as a training instructor, and claims he can “still swing an axe with the best of them.” He has not been witnessed on any first response calls.
Beanpot has taken stewardship of the garden once managed by former Firefighter Atlas Guerra.
- His previous work as a union organizer has led to him teaching union-organizing workshops with Isaac Johnson.
- Beanpot is an avid chess player and, in his free time, is known to organize recreational speed chess tournaments in the greater Chicago area.

- All of Beanpot’s play-by-play logs have been made available for public viewing in the Chicago History Museum.
- Beanpot owns reading glasses of extremely high power, but constantly misplaces them, and then claims he has no need for them.
- Beanpot’s long and storied history of committing tax evasion has put him at odds with fellow Firefighter Peanutiel Duffy.
