Pedro Davis is gay.
Writing to Valentine Games
Pedro has been writing to Valentine Games long before either of them joined the ILB, having met in the Baltimore Aquarium during a childhood vacation. They two became fast friends and began their correspondence with enthusiasm as soon as Pedro arrived back home. Since then they have exchanged letters frequently, even when Pedro moved to Baltimore full time and the two of them joined the Baltimore Crabs. When Valentine Games was traded to the Jazz Hands for Tot Fox, and they were apart once more, their letters kept them tied together.
In season 7 when Pedro played as the only unstable player of the Baltimore Crabs under the effects of the eclipse, he wrote a letter to Val realizing it may arrive posthumously. Due to the fact the Houston Spies, Val's team at the time, having a conflicting game, Val was unable to be there in person for Pedro. In fact the Spies put out an uncharacteristically straight forward statement confirming that, "There is absolutely no way that we could have sent Valentine Games to Baltimore, you can clearly see the footage of him in our game against the Flowers. It would be absurd to think anything else could have happened in that game".
After the Crabs were called up Val received one final letter from Pedro written before the fateful game, but has continued their half of the correspondence by dropping off letters at the Telescope to await the Crab's return.
After a moving to Baltimore and joining the Crabs Pedro began keeping a written correspondence with his family back in Puerto Peñasco. They are reportedly just "not that into sports" so Pedro makes a point of keeping them abreast of the latest developments in the ILB, though usually focuses on his own accomplishments, and leaves out the accomplishments of certain other star players. In an excerpt of one of his letters to Valentine Games he admins that, "I know it's not the whole truth, and they can watch the games from where they are, but who doesn't brag a little when writing home, Val?"
Writing to Goobie Ballson
An unexpected Pen pal, Pedro began writing to Goobie shortly after the 12 game series that the firefighters played against the Crabs in season 8. While Pedro maintained his usually writing style in these letters, Goobie primarily sent short letters, often consisting of single words. Reportedly Pedro has received:
- A mix CD made by Goobie
- A cool rock he found
- A label from a local brewery bottle
- Items from the gift shops of other team's stadiums (that they both play at regularly)
- One package of sticky hands
- A collection of Chicago Firefighters merchandise to decorate Pedro's RV
Outgrowing the Shell
While in the Big Leagues, Pedro outgrew his current camper. Rather than risk getting ingrown into this one he decided to perform a complicated ritual using all the resources available to the Crabs to try and rework his own Carcinization.
While it is unclear whether something went wrong with the ritual or the Olde One could not reach the Big Leagues effectively, the result was unsatisfactory. Unwilling to give up, Pedro took matters into his own hands and began using his understanding of Carcinization as well as parts from former teammate Axel Trololol and his RV to create a new more compact and more customizable appliance to carry around. The result was a dense crab-like creature that could clamp onto his back, and expand into a wing-like shape.
When asked about how he felt about making use of Axel's remains in such a way Pedro commented that "Evil is a label applied by the world to behaviors society rejects. They call us evil here for killing our god. Let them say what they say about us. I don't let it affect me and my decisions. I'm taking control of my own destiny". This was reportedly followed by yet another attempt by Evelton McBlase II to recruit Pedro as their sidekick.
