Official League Records

Debut

Dovenpart joined the ILB as a pitcher for the Los Angeles Tacos with the Return of Blaseball, with the name Lee Davenport.

The Grand Unslam & Name Change

Dovenpart was the Tacos pitcher in the Season β3, Day 73 game against the Charleston Shoe Thieves known as the Grand Unslam.

After the Season β3 elections, Dovenpart was briefly known as Wyatt Mason due to The Wyatt Masoning. During The Unmasoning, Dovenpart's surname was misspelled by The Commissioner during repairs, and was written as Dovenpart instead of Davenport. They are one of two Tacos players who had their original name's spelling changed through The Unmasoning (the other being Sexton Wheerer). The cause of this error is believed to be carelessness on The Commissioner's part, even if The Commissioner is doing a great job.

Season 5

On Season β5, Day 82, in a game against the Houston Spies, Dovenpart was caught in a Reverb incident and switched positions from pitcher to lineup player.

Season 9

During the Season β9 elections, Dovenpart retreated to the Tacos' Shadows due to the Downsizing blessing.

Early Life and 2K Controversy

Wyatt Dovenpart (then Lee Davenport) was a baker before being consigned to the Blaseball league. They are most known for their outspoken opposition to the ILB 2K██ series of video games, as they have strong superstitions against their likeness being used in a simulation.

Dovenpart also criticized the accuracy of the game, saying they had brown hair that the game falsely depicted as red. However, fellow players and fans alike can confirm that Dovenpart has had red hair for as long as they've been in the league. When shown photo evidence of this fact, Dovenpart whispered something about "being replaced by their digital doppelgänger" and refused to give any further comment. They have not spoken a word since.

Background

Dovenpart worked at their personal community garden and bakery, and from this work became rather strong. Al Pastor, who frequented said bakery, noticed this, and while developing a team prior to the first season, asked Dovenpart if they would be interested in joining an up-and-coming Kickball league. While signing health papers to join his team, Dovenpart accidentally committed to a life of Blaseball, instead of Kickball.

The Grand Unslam

Dovenpart reportedly threw their secret ability pitch, The Gateway Ball, also known as the Quantum Curveball or The 502mph Ball, which invoked a 502 Bad Gateway event and led to an unplanned siesta. Fans have theorized that it was Dovenpart's digital doppelgänger who took advantage of the weakening system to attempt to open a rift and replace Dovenpart once and for all, or perhaps escape the simulation entirely, though these rumors are unconfirmed.

However, Dovenpart’s doppelgänger was spotted at a Taco shop by fellow Tacos player Patel Beyonce just a few days before the start of Season β4. After learning this, Dovenpart stated, "I would assume they are doing BAD things." It is unconfirmed what their doppelgänger was doing at the time.

The Many Faces of Wyatt Dovenpart

According to the Interdimensional Rumor Mill, some things never change, even across dimensions. Someone, somewhere, decided to catalog all the different versions of Wyatt Dovenpart in a Rumor Registry, but today the version from IF-502.29 is playing. Here’s what the rumors say...

Dovenpart's Doppelgänger

At some point prior to Season 1, the first game of the ILB 2K██ series was released. Regarding Wyatt Dovenpart (then Lee Davenport), this is noteworthy for several reasons: they objected to their likeness being used in a simulation, he insisted that the game had gotten their hair color wrong, and, most intriguingly, he was not at that time signed up for Internet League Blaseball, having a level of interest in kickball but otherwise working at a community garden and bakery. They stated their doubts that they would ever wind up in a game of Blaseball, and that the game was wildly inaccurate.

Fate, of course, had other plans for Lee Davenport; Dovenpart joined the Tacos alongside longtime family friend Wyatt Mason, lured in by the appeal of kickball and Al Pastor's deceptive marketing. Both of them enjoyed the relative calm of Season One. At that point, still speaking, they were quoted saying, "If the doppelgänger predicted me joining this splort, what else can it predict?" It would appear that his concern was not entirely misplaced. On Season 2 Day 73, it was reported that ILB 2K██'s servers went down for almost three hours.

By the time the Quantum Curveball was hit on Season 3 Day 73, his game figure used the 502 Error to its advantage and began materializing in Los Angeli. Although infrequent, team members have expressed that a red-haired Dovenpart had given forewarnings varying in significance, from the team’s 3-9 loss on Season 5 Day 23, to the existence of a wave-based weather event, which eventually resulted in Dovenpart's swap to the Lineup in Season 5. The ominous air of these messages made it unclear whether they were a warning or a threat. Only one of its messages is on record, when it stated that "Your friends will wind up working for the very thing they fight against". During the appearances of the digital doppelgänger, Dovenpart likely became lost in LA’s Corruption and fell into the team's Shadows. Having only vague memories of the Shadows once returning, he only knows of the doppelgänger's actions through secondhand reports from teammates, although they tend to fail to remember details as time passes.

Although Dovenpart's hair could be reasonably described as brown or brown-adjacent for most of their ILB career, it appeared to have gradually become more ginger over time. Post Feedback of NaN (previously Wyatt Mason) at the beginning of Season 9, doppelgänger sightings rose steadily, until the point of Day X, when Dovenpart began to consistently glitch out of physicality between Los Angeli and the Shadows. With little to no sense of physical self, paired with concern over being replaced by their doppelgänger as every disaster seemed to bring them closer, Dovenpart eventually ended up formally Shadowed with the Downsizing Blessing.
