This article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community. It is just one of many Rumors that we've found in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill. You can find more Rumors about Yazmin Mason at their Rumor Registry.
Hailing from Elysium, Mason was born an ordinary deer until she was bit by a radioactive blaseball player, giving her the ability to walk on two legs, grab things with her hooves, and speak in Blaseballian. Taking an interest in blaseball, she used her new abilities to practice in the Elysian Underleagues, where games were played on long open fields with no back fence for harder home runs, and with a much slower pace of play. Despite underwhelming performance during her first three seasons, she quickly became popular with fans for her enthusiasm.
Paula Turnip was Mason's childhood friend, though the two had a falling out over Paula's "unethical business practices" before Mason joined the Tigers.
Mason is refused to field interviewers' questions about whether she would be more suited for a Good League team.
This version of Yazmin Mason hailed from an unusually divergent dimension - one in which Landry Violence was never incinerated. It is usually believed that such a massive divergence is impossible, as blaseball outcomes remain consistent across all dimensions. Dr. Pecota has suggested that as replacement Paula Turnip exhibits shockingly similar performance to Landry, such a divergence could occur without violating the Blaseball Consistency Principle.
Mason, like her alternate counterpart, focused on training to improve herself after a disappointing Season β3 performance. However, without psychic rage at Landry's death fueling her pitching, she was unable to match said counterpart.
When the Alternate Reality decree was selected by the participants, this Mason was swapped with the version of herself from IF-17.34. Mason was devastated to discover Violence's death and shocked to find Paula Turnip on the team in her new dimension.
Mason had offered to answer any questions about her home dimension. Facts she shared include:
- Pluto is still considered a planet.
- Hotdogs are called "hamburgers" and hamburgers are called "frankfurters" because Hamburg and Frankfurt switched places.
- Betamax was the video format of choice until Laserdisc went mainstream.
After Mason's incineration, her blaseball cap was put on display alongside that of her alternate counterpart in the Landry Violence Memorial Hall. Both fans and Tigers players have taken to wearing fake antlers for good luck during games.
