History of ILB Inhabitation
The First Haunted Player
The Haunted modification first appeared in the ILB in the Season 10 Elections when Esme Ramsey of the Charleston Shoe Thieves gained it via the Haunted blessing. During Season β11, the effects of the modification were revealed, when Ramsey was Inhabited by Deceased player Atlas Jonbois on Season β11, Day 1 against the Yellowstone Magic. Jonbois gained the InhabitingThis Player is temporarily Inhabiting a Haunted Player. modification and proceeded to hit a groundout to Bevan Wise. Ramsey then re-emerged and Jonbois' Inhabiting modification was lost.
With the rise of Ballparks in Season β13, it was noticed that Esme Ramsey's Haunted would trigger more often than usual. One correlation noted was the Mysticism in the Chesapeake Racetrack and Ballpark; due to it being the sole constructed Ballpark at the time, any game Ramsey played in the Ballpark would find them becoming Haunted at an increased rate compared to other Home Ballparks. This increased rate would be adjusted during the Off-Season between Season β17 and Season β18.

Wright inhabited Loser, and hit a ground out to Beck Whitney, before leaving Loser. Wright was unsearchable on the main site, and had not been a Player seen in the 20 Seasons of Blaseball prior. Loser would proceed to be inhabited by dozens more unknown Players. The phenomenon would be coined by the community as "KLoNGs" (Kennedy Loser's New Ghosts/Guys). As Ultra League Blaseball was revealed by the community, these mysterious specters were found to be Pre-History Players, and once revealed in the Library, they would appear in the Hall of Flame alongside the Deceased Players the community was more familiar with.
