Official League Record
On Season 22, Day 4, Internet retreated to the Breath Mints' Shadows in exchange for Bright Zimmerman at the Kansas City FreshDome via the Ratified Voicemail. On Day 56, Internet rejoined the Breath Mints' lineup in exchange for Zimmerman at the Kansas City FreshDome again via the Voicemail.
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Internet's perceivable form is constructed of several ASCII characters artfully pieced together into the shape of a very kind and talented Blaseball player. In his current form he appears stuck at only dial-up speeds, however, Kansas City's high speed fiber-optic internet may unlock his full potential.
As a personification of the internet itself, the playfully nicknamed "Rod.Net" is well known for his quick thinking and love of cat pictures. Some fans have reportedly seen him keeping a small plush cat on a keychain around his belt, though none can seem to agree as to what the cat looks like. When asked to present the keychain during interviews, Internet consistently laughs to themself before informing the reporter that the alleged feline is "a bit camera shy."
Internet is also known to wear JNCO jeans, both in regular blue and a custom made mint green, which they swear are his secret to being a good player. More often than not, however, it's theorized that this leads to him getting caught stealing more than anything, though Internet has been yet to be seen tripping on their jeans in his day to day life.
After Season 4, Internet was replaced by a doppleganger, nicknamed instead "Rod.Com". At a glance the two appear almost identical, but there are subtle differences between the two.
Original Rodriguez Internet's walk-out music was "Spybreak!" by English electronic duo Propellerheads. Alternate reality Internet's preferred walk-up music is a 15 second unskippable ad. This new Internet always waits for the entire ad to be over before he starts swinging, often resulting in several strikes.
Alternate Internet likes to hand out cookies to fans between at-bats, and then obsessively checks on the status of said cookies throughout the game (and even at future games if he recognizes the fans).
- Very good at recommending gift ideas (often unsolicited).
- Uses pop-up ads to deflect pop flys into his glove.
- Experiences lag while base-running, making him easier to tag out.
- His power increases based on how many fans like and subscribe.
- Rod.net! He’s the internet!
- Hot singles in your area! (after hitting a single)
- Rod.net/dinger (after hitting a home run)
- Beep boop, beep boop, Rod.com is in a loop!
