The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Ogden Mendoza was a marble statue of a human-appearing figure. Mendoza is composed of the same marble as the Pit, which allows em to move when unobserved. Eir composition leaves em vulnerable to the stabilizing effects of ghost lights and their Gazing Agate sources, causing em to be paralyzed in place if caught in range. Mendoza was created an unknown time ago by an artist with the same last name, which the statue would later take on. Mendoza was created with the intention of becoming a garden centerpiece that could move in controlled ways to bring variety to eir environment. According to records found in the Pit, Mendoza accidentally killed eir creator in a studio accident, and after doing so began to move around the studio with purpose, thought, and motivation. It is theorized that Mendoza took on eir creator's life energy upon their death.

Mendoza was discovered before the Return of Blaseball in a newly-rediscovered room in the Pit that was stabilized via a considerable number of ghost lights, locking the statue in place. Mendoza was recruited by the Jazz Hands as a pitcher after being removed from the influence of the lights.
Mendoza's teammates described em during eir short career as acting in very bizarre and impersonal ways. Interviews with Mendoza were notoriously difficult, not due to eir nature as a statue, but due to the fact ey spoke almost exclusively in enigmatic, strange, and sometimes vaguely threatening poetic verse that rarely seemed relevant to the questions being asked by reporters.
After the Season β2, Day 51 incineration of Lars Mendoza, Ogden Mendoza seemed livelier, as much as a statue could be, and reportedly had made a comment to teammates about having absorbed the life energy of Lars Mendoza. It is unknown how this occurred, as Mendoza did not elaborate further. Some theories present the possibility that Mendoza could absorb the life energies of other Mendozas, an ability granted after ey unintentionally killed eir creator.
Mendoza was incinerated on Season β3, Day 23. Due to eir marble composition, it is suggested that Rogue Umpires are capable of reaching temperatures between 1517 and 2442 degrees Fahrenheit, the melting point of marble, or perhaps higher.
