Memorial Bat Forest
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
When a Blaseball player passes beyond blaseball, whether through retirement, ascension, or incineration, their bat is planted in the Memorial Bat Forest by The Groundskeeper. The Moss Woman typically crafts bats for new players from the branches of the trees they grow into, though some players prefer to bring their own or request special designs.
While the Memorial Bat forest started purely to memorialize incinerated Flowers players, after the rapid-fire tragedies of Season Four, the Flowers decided to open the Forest to all teams. While the typical memorial is a planted bat, cultivated into a tree, for players whose bats have been passed on or otherwise lost the Flowers hold an Honorary Planting, where they plant a new flower of the incinerated player's team's choice.

The flowers are often fasciated, appearing stretched and distorted.

- Patch of Black-Eyed Susans (overgrown)
- Stele, inlaid with memorial pearls in a design commissioned by Adalberto Tosser, reading:
If I had lived a thousand lives
At once, and every single eye affixed
Aloft, and tracing clouds adrift,
Stoic to that sidelong din,
That grasping, cloying everything,
I would have filled a thimbleful
Of life and loss before the pull
Of sleep begot this welling weight
Of stone within my chest
And you, and you, and you,
Had every moment witnessed this,
And crystalized it well within
Until without, so all your skin
Was made of stone, and laying bare,
I could not feel the softness there,
But in the storied fissures glowed
A gentleness that caught the light
In facets gleamed a thousand tears,
- Adalberto Tosser
- By request of the deceased, the memorial was placed besides that of Brock Forbes. The memorial is often marked by flower murals, tags, and splotches, though it is unknown from whom or where they come from or where they go.
- Ashes returned to Baltimore to be made into pearls
- Bat Tree, grafted to Sweetgum, standing over patch of Marigolds. Black-Eyed Susans grow in from Brock's memorial
- Stele, inlaid with memorial pearls and poem, commissioned by Flower Baldwin Breadwinner recalling their time in the Ascension, and the friendship that followed, reading:
We wanderers of warrens wound
Above, beneath, within,
No eyes could trace the pitch, so plunge
Your lifeline tether limb:
The astronaut, the cartograph,
The poet sent, the thief.
You, and a flashlight
Alone could bring relief.
How many stars would burn before
Your paint can's gotten dry?
How many underhanded scores
Before you aurify?
We fell forever on that shore,
I had no words, I screamed.
But you, and a pencil,
Alone described the dream.
