Vibes

For more team-related Vibes, see Hawai'i Fridays/History.

The Fridays are blessed/cursed by Our Lady of Perpetual Friday. For the Fridays, it is always island time. Players cannot feel the passing of the hours for it is always late afternoon on Friday, a time to stop worrying about the trials of the week and instead a time to hang out with family and friends. No matter the temperature, the Fridays experience the weather as a cool 70-something degrees with a pleasant ocean breeze. The smell of pit oven smoke lingers around them. They are fun at parties.

The Fridays are a workers' cooperative where each player owns an equal stake in the team. Departing players give their shares to transfers. There are outside sponsors, such as singer-songwriter Rebecca Black. There are no coaches, managers, or non-player owners. Everyone on the team fills these roles simultaneously.

The Fridays never go home from a game before having a nice cookout with the opposing team. Fan cheers include the classic "TGIF!', the lengthier "TGIFE24HADAFH" (Thank God It's Friday Every 24 Hours All Days Are Friday Here), "GRILL'S UP!" during the 7th inning protein snack, "WSSSHHH!" (wave noises), and "IT'S ISLAND TIME!" (the team motto).

Stadium

The Fridays do not have a proper stadium and prefer to play wherever the vibes feel the best.

The lack of a set stadium means there is no PA system, and so batters are played to the box by the combination of Stevenson Heat on ukulele and Jimmy Mora on vocals (even while either are on the mound), the duo unofficially called 'More Heat'.

The Fridays traditionally set up their snack and frosty drink carts next to third base. This leads to many Fridays players getting thrown out trying to steal third, as they forget about the game and leisurely stroll over to check out the cart. Efforts to move the carts to a less accessible and game-altering place have been strongly resisted by former captain Elijah Valenzuela ("All such things should be freely available to the people.") and pitcher Stevenson Heat ("I just gets real hungry sometimes, you know?").

The Fridays no longer have a fourth base, as their original one gained sentience to become Evelton McBlase. As such, the team uses Daddy Bradley's lucky ballcap to mark its location during games. Due to the chill nature of the team, the placement of the ballcap is never exact and that often results in differing lengths of the first and third blase lines from game-to-game.

Uniform

There is no Fridays uniform. Players wear whatever they want—sometimes in team colors, sometimes not. (Always in 'aloha shirt' patterns.) Despite not having a uniform, the Fridays do have a dress code: if wearing a shirt, at least one button must be unbuttoned to feel the ocean breeze. It is unclear if any player has read the dress code.

There is no official team mascot. At various times, the Fridays mascot has been: any bird in the vicinity of the game currently going on (often Hawai'ian honeycreepers, such as Fletcher Yamamoto himself), a fan dressed up as a volcano, Our Lady of Perpetual Friday, C O C O N U T, or literally anything silly that shows up to the game. Lately, Gabriel Griffith has taken it upon himself to act as a mascot when not pitching.

Sponsorships

The official drink of the Fridays is Mountain Dew® Baja Blast Freeze. Unofficial drinks include piña colada, margarita, Capri Sun, Sunny D, Pineapple Spindrift, and (not really a drink) Hawai'ian-style shave ice. These are kind of like mascots.

Although the team has no owners, this almost changed due to the persistent need for 'drink money' in the lead-up to Season 2. T.G.I. Friday's restaurateur Daniel R. Scoggin attempted to buy the team. On his way to seal the deal, however, Scoggin got lost at sea. The deal accordingly never took place, although T.G.I. Friday's did manage to secure a minor sponsorship for mascot rights, which simply means that the team serves the T.G.I. Friday's drink menu at home games (e.g. THE BEST FRIDAYS™ MARGARITA, etc.).
