(Redirected from Lee Davenport)
Wyatt Dovenpart was a player in the Shadows for the LA Unlimited Tacos, and was with the team from Season β1 until Fall Ball.
Official League Records
Dovenpart joined the ILB as a pitcher for the Los Angeles Tacos with the Return of Blaseball, with the name Lee Davenport.
The Grand Unslam & Name Change
Dovenpart was the Tacos pitcher in the Season β3, Day 73 game against the Charleston Shoe Thieves known as the Grand Unslam.
After the Season β3 elections, Dovenpart was briefly known as Wyatt Mason due to The Wyatt Masoning. During The Unmasoning, Dovenpart's surname was misspelled by The Commissioner during repairs, and was written as Dovenpart instead of Davenport. They are one of two Tacos players who had their original name's spelling changed through The Unmasoning (the other being Sexton Wheerer). The cause of this error is believed to be carelessness on The Commissioner's part, even if The Commissioner is doing a great job.
On Season β5, Day 82, in a game against the Houston Spies, Dovenpart was caught in a Reverb incident and switched positions from pitcher to lineup player.
During the Season β9 elections, Dovenpart retreated to the Tacos' Shadows due to the Downsizing blessing.

Early Life and 2K Controversy
Wyatt Dovenpart (then Lee Davenport) was a baker before being consigned to the Blaseball league. They are most known for their outspoken opposition to the ILB 2K██ series of video games, as they have strong superstitions against their likeness being used in a simulation.
Dovenpart also criticized the accuracy of the game, saying they had brown hair that the game falsely depicted as red. However, fellow players and fans alike can confirm that Dovenpart has had red hair for as long as they've been in the league. When shown photo evidence of this fact, Dovenpart whispered something about "being replaced by their digital doppelgänger" and refused to give any further comment. They have not spoken a word since.
Dovenpart worked at their personal community garden and bakery, and from this work became rather strong. Al Pastor, who frequented said bakery, noticed this, and while developing a team prior to the first season, asked Dovenpart if they would be interested in joining an up-and-coming Kickball league. While signing health papers to join his team, Dovenpart accidentally committed to a life of Blaseball, instead of Kickball.
The Grand Unslam
Dovenpart reportedly threw their secret ability pitch, The Gateway Ball, also known as the Quantum Curveball or The 502mph Ball, which invoked a 502 Bad Gateway event and led to an unplanned siesta. Fans have theorized that it was Dovenpart's digital doppelgänger who took advantage of the weakening system to attempt to open a rift and replace Dovenpart once and for all, or perhaps escape the simulation entirely, though these rumors are unconfirmed.
However, Dovenpart’s doppelgänger was spotted at a Taco shop by fellow Tacos player Patel Beyonce just a few days before the start of Season β4. After learning this, Dovenpart stated, "I would assume they are doing BAD things." It is unconfirmed what their doppelgänger was doing at the time.
The Many Faces of Wyatt Dovenpart
- According to the Interdimensional Rumor Mill, some things never change, even across dimensions. Someone, somewhere, decided to catalog all the different versions of Wyatt Dovenpart in a Rumor Registry, but today the version from IF-502.71 is playing. Here’s what the rumors say...
The Wyatt Masoning, where every player on the newly Unlimited (formerly Los Angeles) Tacos, was renamed after their worst player, Wyatt Mason, acted as a formative moment for Dovenpart’s relationship to the team. Most of the Tacos categorized the blur of time between the Unslam and Unmasoning as “Just another weird thing to happen to the Tacos. Really, we don’t worry about it, and we promise that Los... [remaining recording unintelligible].” As Parker MacMillan III, whose role in the Unmasoning involved locating frequencies, incompletely reverted the majority of team names, ‘Wyatt’ or ‘Mason’ was left in place of many previous names. The further misspelling of Sexton Wheeler’s name to Wheerer, and Lee Davenport’s name to Dovenpart, caused tensions as Dovenpart viewed the partial renamings as significantly more consequential than his teammates did.
While most of the roster was relatively comfortable with their Unmasoned names, team management has stated that Dovenpart frantically insisted that their names needed to be fixed, and that the team was not reacting appropriately to their identity conglomeration. NaN, accustomed to Dovenpart’s dismays from their partial connection to the original Wyatt Mason, suggested that the anxiety was based on his digital doppelgänger, and consequential uneasiness towards errors. Although the team attempted to calm them, Dovenpart refrained from speaking for multiple seasons after the Siesta, overwhelmed in their own unease.
Once they began privately conversing with their teammates in later career seasons, Dovenpart has been noted to exclusively refer to everyone with their original first names. However, with the nature of Wyatt names, the utterance of original names are usually lost to Los Angeli’s Tear, and instead empty blocks of speech come out.
Dovenpart is also known to hold a grudge against the Commissioner(s) and their lack of action regarding naming, incinerations, and the “Horrid criteria for team manager selection”. While he has not publicly commented on the loss of both the third and fourth Parkers, he is assumed to resent all Commissioners, as well as anyone with a role of power across the plains of Blaseball (besides the Microphone).
