12 In the Season 12 elections, the Worms traded Huber Frumple to the Philly Pies for Farrell Seagull via the Pies' Exchange will. The Worms themselves received their own Exchange will, trading Mindy Kugel to the Seattle Garages for Pitching Machine, and the Infuse will, increasing Huber Frumple's stats post-trade. The Worms also benefitted from the Canada Moist Talkers' Tag Team Hitting blessing, increasing the entire lineup's hitting by 10%. 6th Yes
13 The Worms finished Season 13 with a record of 21-78 and a grand total of 14 wins, entering Party Time on Day 67, a new record.

During the Season 13 elections, the Worms benefited from all four "Bubble" blessings: Pitching Flotation Bubble, Hitting Flotation Bubble, Defense Flotation Bubble, and Baserunning Flotation Bubble, which boosted all four primary stats by 4% each.

The Worms also benefited from the Free Wills decree, giving them a third Will. The Worms received Plunder will, choosing Pitching Machine, who was already a member of the lineup. The will randomly selected Farrell Seagull from the Worms lineup to swap; however, as both players were already in the lineup, no change resulted from this Will. In addition, the Worms received the Exchange will, trading Wanda Schenn to the Chicago Firefighters in return for NaN. They also voted for the Trust will, giving Pitching Machine the Uncertain modification.

6th No
14 As one of the many teams that installed PsychoAcoustics for their ballpark, the Worms received their own Wyatt Mason, who was nicknamed Wy8 as they were the eighth one. On Day 86, Mason VIII and Mason III of the Atlantis Georgias echoed each other into static which removed them both from the active rosters.

The Worms' finishing record of 46-53 with 46 wins tied with the Miami Dale. However, the Worms had the divine favor of six whereas the Dale had the divine favor of ten. This prevented the Worms from triggering their team modification, Bottom Dweller, as they were not at the bottom of their division.

In the Season 14 elections, The Worms won the Jam-Packed blessing, awarding them the Jam-Packed modification. They received the Exchange will, trading Enid Marlow to the Baltimore Crabs in exchange for Luis Acevedo. They also voted for the Foreshadow will, sending Persephone Splotter to the Shadows in exchange for Xandra Pancakes.

5th No
15 In the Season 15 elections, The Worms won the Shadow Pitching Practice blessing, boosting all their shadow players' pitching stars by 1 to 12%. They also won the Epiphany blessing to boost Pitching Machine's divinity by -12%.

The Worms benefited from the Free Wills decree, giving them a third Will. With the Move will, they moved Ephraim Ladd from their rotation to the Shadows. They received the Equivalent Exchange will, trading Luis Acevedo to the Baltimore Crabs in return for Jacoby Podcast. In addition, the Worms received the Transfuse will to infuse Acevedo's pitching stars while outfusing their baserunning stars.

6th Yes
16 The Worms finished third in the league and entered the post-season for the first time. They played against the Houston Spies in the Division Series. In game four when the Spies were up 2-1 in the series, the Spies and the Worms both triggered Sun 2 by scoring 10 runs each which allowed the teams to gain a win. Although the Spies technically reached three wins first, the series was tied 3-3 after the Worms won game four. This allowed the Worms to play one more game in the series which they lost.

In the Season 16 elections, The Worms won the Shadow Batting Practice blessing, boosting all their shadow players' batting stars by 1 to 12%. The Worms moved Cantus Hojo from their lineup to their Shadows via the Move will. They also received the Transfuse will to infuse Patchwork Southwick's pitching stars while outfusing their defense stars.

2nd No
17 The Worms were unable to replicate the past season's performance. They finished with a record of 55-44 with 56 wins.

In the Season 17 elections, the Worms won zero blessings. However, they did receive the Transfuse will to infuse Jacoby Podcast's pitching stars while outfusing their baserunning stars. In addition, they utilized the Enrich will to gain a seasonal modification, Home Field Advantage, which would grant them one run at the beginning of home games for Season 18.

4th No
18 The Worms went on a string, surviving an influx of Consumer Attacks. They finished with a record of 54-45 with 52 wins.

In the Season 18 elections, the Worms won zero blessings. However, they did receive the Move will to move Xandra Pancakes to the Shadows. In addition, they utilized the Shadow Revoke will to remove Tad Seeth from their shadows. This gave Seeth the Roamin' modification and they made their way to the Miami Dale's shadows.

5th No
19 Due to Turn Tables becoming Non-Physical Law from the Season 18 Election, the Worms finished the season with 39 Unwins with a record of 38-61. They entered the playoffs as the second seed of Wild Low. The Worms played against the Boston Flowers for the Division series and lost 1-3.

In the Season 19 elections, the Worms won two blessings, Cluttered and Subtractor. Cluttered would allow Scratch Deleuze to play better in Filthier Ballparks. The Subtractor blessing hit Cedric Spliff on the Moist Talkers and made them a Subtractor.

1st No
20 Worms end the season 44-55, coming in 5th in the Wild Low. They spend both their wills this season moving the thrice Consumer chomped Rivers Rosa to the shadows in an effort to save her from further damage, bringing out sleeper favorite Xandra Pancakes. the Team wins the Blessing Green Light for Wild Low and gives several players, including Stew Briggs the ability to play better in positive polarity Weather 5th No
21 Thanks to receiving a replica of Chorby Soul wielding Chorby's Soul, replicas of the now Yolked Liquid Friend and Uncle Plasma from the gift shop, the team descends the Depth Chart towards the Blaseball2 Gate and crash through in order to release Pickled Herring into the league.

COMMUNITY REPORTS
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

Ohio

Wapakoneta

Birthplace of Beil Armstrong and Landing Pad of The Ohio Worms, this run-of-the-mill town in Ohio has gone largely unchanged since the arrival of an ILB expansion team…..on the surface. Travelers passing through town however report getting stuck driving through endless cornfields down roads that turn at non-Euclidean angles for days, sometimes weeks at a time. Worms congregate in Wapakoneta en masse, so secrets don’t stay buried for long. Other bugs seem to flock here as well and the evenings are filled with noises of calling insects.

Cuyahoga Fire River

The Cuyahoga River has caught on fire no less than thirteen times and recently former Firefighter Rivers Rosa spent the vast majority of her off time fighting fires on the river, as well as helping create safety procedures and evacuation route for those who live and work near the flame-prone body of water. Though she is recovering from Consumer-related injuries in Los Angeli, Rivers’ legacy lives on in the many livelihoods she has helped to safeguard in Ohio

The New Aeronautics, Space, and Worms Administration (NASWA)

This foundational agency was established shortly after the Breach event. It’s main function is to study the rules of this plane to better understand the properties and relationships implied by its laws. Ultimately The Worms seek a way to return to Blaseball2. Whether they would take the path after its confirmation is a matter of debate, but the team agrees it would be nice to at least discover a way home.

Elder Cottage

Player housing! The Elder Cottage caters to your every whim, but be careful as it is as likely to deliver what you need, as what you want

Wormhole Highway Interchange

Dare you hop aboard the wormhole highway? This baby wormhole in the basement of the stadium and allows players with their wormhole highway license to travel to alternate realities, each with their own Ohio Worms

The Entrance to Althio

The team has decided to stabilize a route on the wormhole highway to Neohio, the pocket dimension discovered by Xandra Pancakes and Farrell Seagull. Rather than keep it as a floating hole in the fabric of space and reality, through the use of scientific machinery that none on the team other than Muse Scantron seem to understand they've managed to transform a broom closet door within the stadium into an actual doorway into the other dimension. Access is as simple as opening the door, but the door is locked behind a secret password that the whole team shares and changes regularly. Home of the Neohio Wyrms.

Augusta Chadwell Memorial Park and Promenade

The Ohio Worms memorial park and gardens, named after the team’s first incinerated player, Augusta Chadwell. The Promenade came about because the team wanted incinerations to be a reason to celebrate and remember. They had lost someone they loved sure but also they got to come together and create something beautiful together as well. Death seems less permanent when there is a baby wormhole in your basement and another reality where that loved one may still be around is only a few steps away.

Non-Player Worms

Sandy Loam

The Ohio Worms stalwart[citation needed] team owner[citation needed], provisioner[citation needed], and plausible alibi, Sandy Loam has never once been spotted within the confines of the [[Wapakoneta Air, Space, and Worm Museum and Ballpark]]. Players and staff alike will report that they have received instruction or had pleasant conversation with Loam but when pressed for details, none could or would be provided. Sandy Loam’s whereabouts are currently unknown, but she is to be presumed well-equipped to handle the task and willing enough to see it done no matter the consequences.

Gregg

Legend has it that Gregg was the first Ohio Worm through after the Breach. Having been charged by the team with finding a way to escape Blaseball2, Gregg was the closest team member to the tear when The Crabs broke ground once again. The resulting forces twisted his body and mind until they were shells of their former selves. The impact with Ohio finished the job but cleared a safe landing for the team. The team built the stadium in his honor, and all around what remained of him. When construction completed, they found their old friend could once again speak to them, as his consciousness haunts the building erected around his remains

Blacklight Mode

When the going gets tough, the worms get…glowing? Blacklight mode is a process that occurs across all players on the team when they get excited or enthusiastic. This process is known to cause physical and emotional changes in players for the duration of the anomaly. It is not uncommon for them to appear or act like someone completely different.
