During the Season β10 elections, Delacruz was cured of xir peanut allergy due to the Nut Button blessing. This was followed by Delacruz valiantly failing to steal second base to prevent a loop in the final game of Season β11, helping secure the championship win for the Sunbeams.
While playing a game against the Miami Dale on Day 52 of Season β12, Delacruz baffled league officials by forcing teammate Nerd Pacheco to run around them while they stayed on third base in the 5th inning, resulting in Pacheco getting a run on Hahn Fox’s sac bunt. Iggy was quoted saying “You have legs Pacheco, don't you? Go around me,” in response to being yelled at by Pacheco to run home.
