Season Results

Season 1

  • Due to interference from the opening The Book of Blaseball, history around the end of Season 1 is vague and ephemeral. However, blaseball historians have collectively agreed that on Season 1 Day 98, the San Francisco Lovers held a record of 38 Wins and 59 Losses and placed 4th in the Lawful Good Division. Thanks to postseason artifacts discovered, we do know that the Lovers did not make playoffs.
  • The San Francisco Lovers received no blessings at the end of Season 1.

Season 2

Details of stat changes between season 2 and season 3 for the Lovers.
Season 2 to Season 3 comparison.
  • The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 29 Wins and 70 Losses. They placed last in the Lawful Good Division, the Good League, and the Internet Blaseball League overall. However, they had a good time out there.
  • The Lovers were blessed with performance enhancing demons despite having 0% of the vote. Speculation on the nature of the demons suggests that they may have been Succubi, lured to the Lovers due to a kinship with the philosophies of the team.
  • Kichiro Guerra was also blessed with BLOODLUST, which manifested as a burning desire to bring True Love back to the world.
  • The Lovers were granted the fourth strike by decree.

Season 3

  • The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 59 Wins and 40 Losses. They placed top of the Lawful Good Division and joint second in the Good League overall alongside the Charleston Shoe Thieves.

Season 4

  • The San Francisco Lovers achieved a regular season record of 49 Wins and 50 Losses.
  • At the end of the season Kichiro Guerra and Parker Meng were accidentally swapped with their alternate dimension counterparts.

She is currently competing against Knight Triumphant for their seat, by seeing who has the bigger, better, and more extensive polycule.

They progressed to the playoffs, finishing in the top four after beating the Dallas Steaks in the quarter finals and losing out to the Chicago Firefighters in the semis.
  • During a game against the Hawai'i Fridays, reverberations caused by The Wave reached dangerous levels and Lovers batter Don Mitchell started to Reverberate. He is now one with time and space, freely able to travel between this dimension and the prohibition dimension.
  • Don Mitchell swallowed a stray peanut while returning from the prohibition dimension for a post-season game against the Chicago Firefighters. It was apparently so delicious that it increased his blaseball skills across the board. Sclientists are still trying to recreate the event.

Main Article: Lovers Lost In the Infinite Los Angeli

This resulted in many scheduling adjustments and many emergency games against the Unlimited Tacos. Eventually, the team was guided out by the Charleston Shoe Thieves. However, the time the Lovers spent in the Infinite Cities with the Tacos created a temporary fate link between the two teams, causing their victories and losses to continue to mirror each other's, regardless of their opponents, for the next 15 days of games.

Know more about the Lovers' history? Add it at San Francisco Lovers/History!

The San Francisco Lovers were founded due to the enthusiasm of their captain, Knight Triumphant—the only member of the original roster to have any previous Blaseball experience. The rest of the San Francisco Lovers original line-up for the team was sourced from Knight's expansive sprawling polyamorous relationships. The roster is currently made up of supportive partners, metamours, and allies eager to encourage Knight Triumphant to pursue their dreams.

Originally sponsored by Miguel Javier's Etsy store, the team ultimately decided to shun corporate sponsorship and are now instead sponsored by the feeling of seeing your partner again after having not seen them for a while. This sponsorship allowed the team to relocate to their current stadium, The PolyHedron.

Trivia

  • The team's highly variable success from season to season could be attributed to their habit of regularly updating their uniforms between seasons. Some of which have caused distractions to occur on field for both the Lovers and their opponents.
