Season 6 began on September 7, 2020. The regular season concluded on September 12, 2020, followed by the postseason and Internet Series on September 13, 2020. It is the 5th season of The Discipline Era. The Baltimore Crabs defeated the Seattle Garages in three games to win their first Internet Series championship.
League Restructuring and Blood Baths
The High Filter decree successfully passed at the end of Season 5, "resulting in the ILB getting dunked in the Blood Tub and surfacing reborn." The existing Good/Evil subleagues and Lawful/Chaotic divisions were restructured based on Season 5 standings into the Wild/Mild subleagues and High/Low divisions. Specifically, the Wild League contains the Top 5 and Bottom 5 teams as of Season 5, while the Mild League contains the teams in between.
Additionally, the decree describes "blood fill[ing] the tub" to introduce a new game mechanic called Blood Baths that interact with four new permanent modifications to every team, based on their division. All four of these "Blood" modifications involve losing or receiving star stats in a variety of circumstances that appear to redistribute player ability across more of the league. The first Blood Bath was anticipated to be occurring this season, but it was instead postponed for unknown reasons.

Idols is the sixth subtitle of The Discipline Era, appearing upon the opening of Season 6. This introduced the new game mechanic Idols, which allows Blaseball participants to idolize any player in the league and benefit from that player's success during games, independent of team loyalty.

Wild Wings v. Blaseball Gods
See the main article on this topic: Mexico City Wild Wings v. The Blaseball Gods
Following the Leagues reorientation from the High Filter decree, the Mexico City Wild Wings were placed in the Mild League instead of the Wild League. The team and its fans filed a legal complaint which was summarily dismissed by The Commissioner. Throughout Season 6, the team was known at various points as the "Wild Wings" and "Mild Wings" while their location alternated between Mexico City and Wexico City. During the events of The Third Strike (below), the team was renamed the Mexico City Mild Wings.
The Third Strike

Following the conclusion of the regular season, the dotted red line on the Idols leaderboard, splitting the top three idolized players from the rest of the page, began to vibrate for approximately half an hour. At the top of the hour, The Peanut spoke and called The Third Strike, claiming that fans have patronized them. Jessica Telephone and Nagomi Mcdaniel received the modification Shelled, which encased the two players inside giant peanut shells, effectively skipping them when their turn comes up in the rotation. However, Peanut Bong, who was in the third position, was left unscathed. Fans speculated that The Peanut only wanted the Peanut-named players in the top three positions, and that this was the reason Bong did not suffer any harm during Third Strike.
The Return of Jaylen Hotdogfingers

Shortly following the end of play on Day 32, incinerated Garages pitcher Jaylen Hotdogfingers entered the Idols leaderboard as a member of the enigmatic Null Team after fans learned of the means to idolize incinerated players. As Hotdogfingers was the first incinerated player in the history of Internet League Blaseball, many fans viewed Hotdogfingers' idolization as an act of defiance against the Blaseball Gods. In response to fans, The Commissioner asked, "are you sure about this[?]" Fans were sure about it, and helped maintain Hotdogfingers' 14th place on the leaderboard, which was covered by the blessing Lottery Pick. Hotdogfingers was brought back to the Garages during the Season 6 election, replacing Mike Townsend in the pitching rotation, who was sent to Shadows.
Following the Season 5 election, the following decrees are in place for Season 6:
- Eat The Rich (Season 3): Funds from the top 1% of coin-havers will be redistributed to the remainder of Fans at the end of the postseason. This decree will remain in effect indefinitely.
- Alternate Reality (Season 4): Two players from each team have swapped with alternate reality versions of themselves and have new attributes. This player effect is permanent.
- High Filter (Season 5): Teams have new leagues and divisions. Fans may now select a player as an idol. The Blood Bath will become a seasonal occurrence.
