Hellmouth Sunbeams/Season 3
The Sunbeams made quick use of their Fourth Strike modification, improving their overall number of wins from the previous season's total by one. Unfortunately this achievement was overshadowed by the untimely incinerations of Rhys Trombone and Velasquez Meadows.
In Season β3 the Sunbeams were subject to two incinerations and one yummy reaction.
- On Day 2 Rhys Trombone was incinerated and replaced with Dudley Mueller (Watch here on Before).
- On Day 23 Velasquez Meadows was incinerated and replaced with Alexander Horne (Watch here on Before).
- On Day 47 Nerd Pacheco ate a stray peanut and had a yummy reaction.
In Season β3 some notable games for the Sunbeams include:
- On Day 23 the Jazzbeams experience the first Double Incineration (Watch here on Before).
- On Day 25 rookie Alexander Horne hit their first scoring play, an iconic Grand Slam Horne Run (Watch here on Before).
The Hellmouth Sunbeams did not win any blessings.
One Step Forward, Two Steps Back
The following summary mixes canon events with community lore.
Season β3 marked the abrupt end of the Sunbeams' peaceful days, with the tragic incineration of Rhys Trombone on Day 2, the earliest incineration in the season. Along with being the best batter on the team, he was also the well-loved husband of hitter Velasquez Meadows and pitcher Sandoval Crossing. Unfortunately, the Umpires struck again on Day 23 with the first recorded double incineration game, stunning fans and players alike when Meadows was incinerated only a few short innings after Breckenridge Jazz Hands' pitcher Ogden Mendoza. The loss of two beloved hitters left the lineup in disarray, and Crossing twice-widowed within the span of only a few short weeks. Shortly after the incinerations, the Charleston Shoe Thieves played the Sunbeams for the first time, allowing Esme Ramsey, the daughter of Trombone, Meadows, and Crossing, to attend her fathers' funerals.
Dudley Mueller and Alexander "Alex" Horne replaced the incinerated Trombone and Meadows respectively. Mueller, formed as a spilled Mlonster Energy mixed with the ashes of Trombone (therefore making it Italian by birth), was taken under the wing of Eugenia Bickle. Bickle, being the only Sunbeam not too shaken by grief, was quick to realize that a newly formed entity should be taught important life skills such as algebra and recognizing 100 species of bird by sight. Horne, on the other hand, climbed out from the Hellmouth and joined the team, seeing the group in need. They made an early impact on the team, with their first scoring play being a Grand Slam against the Philly Pies on Day 25.
With the loss of star hitter Trombone and the calming presence of Meadows, even a yummy reaction for batter Nerd Pacheco combined with the team-wide Fourth Strike modification was still not enough to help the team pull themselves together. Despite finishing with one more win than the season prior, the Sunbeams found themselves with the second worst overall record in the league once again. However, a bright spot was found in the postseason regardless of the Sunbeams' non-participation, as anti-rivals the Hades Tigers took home their first Internet Series title. At the Tigers' Championship Party, the unbreakable Tigerbeams bond led to a blossoming romance, with Tigers batter Ren Morin reportedly being seen canoodling with the Sunbeams' own Emmett Internet.
