The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Miki Santana joined the Houston Spies Blaseball team roster in Season β1, but was a long-time member of the Spies agency before they started playing Blaseball. Known for her musical talents, Santana is said to have been an expert in encoding and decoding messages in a variety of audible formats. Attendees of their gigs frequently reported "sick horns" and "dope beats," but also the occasional strange side effect, such as implanted memories, unexpected responses to code phrases, and the sudden desire to organize their workplace.
On the Field
Santana was one of the Spies' stronger players. Their tendency to wear recording equipment drew scrutiny from umpires at first, but when it was demonstrated that this equipment was primarily used for recording ambient Blaseball sounds later used in music rather than recording information, Santana was allowed to continue. Whether this equipment aided in their success on the field was a oft-debated topic during the ILB's first few seasons, but it was eventually dropped following their incineration in Season 3.
Though Santana's activities with the Spies organization are by their nature classified, fans of their music have compiled their numerous tracks, both finished and unfinished. Santana was a versatile music artist with a number of genre influences, resulting in a diverse and eclectic collection of songs. However, one constant among their music is the use of backmasking—messages recorded and played in reverse—and even ultrasonic beeps beneath the melodies. Despite these discoveries, none of the messages have yet been decoded.
Given their fruitful career as a musician and being a Blaseball player, Santana toured the world performing gigs and playing games in front of numerous audiences. Their travels afforded them ample opportunity to smuggle information across borders without suspicion. Though Santana denies that her world tours serve any purpose other than performing both on the Blaseball field and at her gigs, trying to play any of the sheet music she carries tends to result in unfathomable screeching sounds.
Miki Santana was incinerated by a rogue umpire on Season β3, Day 76, in a game against the Seattle Garages. The Garages' secret show immediately following the game became an impromptu tribute to Santana, with both Spies and Garages fans celebrating her life and legacy through song, dance, and vigorous shoving in the mosh pit. The Seattle Garages have since taken to sampling Santana's songs by way of both apology and honor; most notably, a sped-up piece of Santana's hit single "Play Must Continue" is used in place of the snare drums on the album version of [REDACTED].
The loss to the Blaseball community and the electronic music scene resulted in an extended mourning period, during which fans of the Houston Spies and Santana's music played her songs—even the ones that sounded like static or screeching—for days on end.
Box of Miki Santana Files
- Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-425.37 and start reading...
Santana is the alleged scion of the music industry power couple █████████ and █████████. While Santana's purported parents have not publicly acknowledged having any children, their reclusive habits make secret offspring plausible. █████████ and █████████'s halftime performance during the Spies' playoff win against the Hades Tigers in Season 1 only served to further propagate rumors of a connection.
She will be dearly missed.
Rumors that the body found at the scene of her incineration actually belonged to one "Mimi Santana" were quickly dispelled by the commissioner's office. If Miki Santana did assume a false identity, leave town, and is currently enjoying her retirement on a beach somewhere, there's absolutely no evidence of such a thing.
