Testimony on Yeong-Ho Garcia's Identity

Stories swirl about Yeong-Ho Garcia in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill. Wiki archivists have dutifully recorded some of them in a Rumor Registry, summarized for easy research. These are the notes for one story from IF-37.454...

Supernaturally Good

Garcia grew up in a relatively secluded area of Pinnacle Mountain within Yellowstone Park. Learning early on that they were gifted with a tint of the supernatural, they shortly began a love affair with blaseball, after having been enrolled in the Local Llittle League at the age of seven.

Having discovered a love of pitching, they began to practice and noticed they had a natural connection to blaseballs which were slightly smudged with local soil.

Becoming the second slotted pitcher in their high school team, the Theofate Titans, they were soon noticed by those silent hooded scouts from the ILB.

Taking some time away from the sport to locate the ghost of their great grandmother, recently discovered to be reincarnated as their current house cat, Yeong-Ho was invited to join the Magic, and helped guide the team to where they are today.

Described as 'lanky' by most, with short hair and a warm-hearted smile, their appearance seems to shift often, only in quite subtle ways, but always into forms that those viewing them would describe as 'putting at ease'.

After Season Three of the Blaseball series, Yeong-Ho began their traditional trek into the wilderness. It was while they were out that the announcement of a Prolonged Siesta was announced. They took this time to travel yet deeper into the Park, where they stumbled upon a vast network of caves. Exploring for a while, they began to follow a chorus of whispers, leading them towards a small chamber, deep under the hidden access to Fairy Falls.

It was here that Yeong-Ho began to understand just what their abilities could do, and how they could help them and the Magic in the future. In exchange for such knowledge, Yeong-Ho's left eye had become crystallized, shimmering with a faint purple glow. It is currently unknown if there are any properties to this, however Yeong-Ho has insisted that their vision has not been compromised. It should be pointed out, however, that there are now more instances of the pieces of chewing gum that have been stuck under the stadium's chairs for so long, to have begun pulsing and shifting, possibly starting to meld together.

During the fourth season of Blaseball, Yeong-Ho began feeling vibrations during a game pitching. They looked around, assuming that all was safe, and brushed it off as a shiver of energy. But then they noticed that their abilities seemed to have altered in some way, and there was a heaviness on their shoulders that wasn't there before. What they didn't know was that they had been swapped for a double of themselves, and were now stuck in [Bluesky]. As a result, the rest of the team began to see them standing upside down, but never really said much else, except those more attuned to the disturbances around them.

They are currently still in [Bluesky], but have accepted that things may be different, and are enjoying new walks in a different version of the Park, and learning many new secrets as they watch what happens with the team. They can only hope that this alternate version will help the team much like they have before.

This concludes the entry.

The Alternatization of Yeong-Ho Garcia

After a strange occurrence in Yellowstone, Garcia has switched places with an alternate [Bluesky] reality Garcia. The alternative Garcia has a right eye made of crystal. They have only ever collected the Yellowstone National Park stamp, forgoing an epic national park tour with their grandma. Because of this, they have terrible blaseball skills, and absolutely no specialty pitches.

Alternate Garcia walks upside down, with their feet in the air and their head just barely hovering off the ground. No one on the team seems to notice. They have pretty harshed vibes, and they seem to have a nasty attitude towards most of the rest of the team. Their teammates can't seem to figure out why Yeong-ho has turned so negative, but when Bevan Wise was questioned on the matter, he only responded, "Something's not right." The only being that can tell the difference is the spirit of Garcia's grandmother, who is residing in a common house cat. She loves both and all Garcias very much. The original Garcia still hangs out in the stands and tries to cheer on the team when they can. They're doing fine!

Court Wizard of the San Francisco Lovers

Though they were sad to see the loss of Jaylen Hotdogfingers, Knight Triumphant of the San Francisco Lovers welcomed the addition of Garcia to the team, as their court remained in dire need of a new Court Wizard. Being from the Magic, and with a reputation as both an experienced pitcher and an astute mage, Yeong-Ho quickly became highly regarded among the Lovers despite being a late addition to the team. Garcia was willing to accept the new role they were given, on the condition that they be allowed to spend time between games befriending the resident birds of the PolyHedron. Triumphant accepted Garcia's request, and they were bestowed a falconer's glove and a wizard's tower in which to practice wizardry and spend their free time maintaining their new aviary.

Yeong-Ho's aviary contains no falcons, but instead a murder-colony of trained crows and seagulls. Originally Yeong-Ho's aviary only contained crows, with whom they were previously most familiar while in Yellowstone, but they quickly noticed that as there were a large number of seagulls residing in San Francisco, and as they were just as easy for them to befriend, there was no problem with recruiting seagulls as well. Over time more and more gulls became recruited in the aviary, until it composed of roughly equal numbers of both species. Yeong-Ho's aviary has also caused a subtle ecological shift, with increased instances of cordial and symbiotic relationships forming between crows and seagulls in and around San Francisco.

Garcia's ability to befriend birds has even extended to fellow ILB players. Upon joining the Lovers, Garcia was inspired by their new team's Charm ability, going so far as to attempt the maneuver themself. Garcia, being a new addition to the team, had no ability whatsoever to perform a Charm; however, their eagerness to do so, combined with their bird-befriending prowess, resulted in them accidentally recruiting Hawai'i Fridays captain and actual bird Fletcher Yamamoto to the team. (The Lovers' adopted void NaN transferred to the Fridays in his place, as they were "ready to leave the nest.")

The circumstances of their friendship notwithstanding, Yamamoto and Garcia did, in fact, form a close bond as the two newest members of the Lovers. The recent construction of the aviary proved beneficial to Yamamoto, who found it to be suitable nesting quarters. The two of them are also reportedly friendly with cousins Milo Brown and Bontgomery "Bonty" Mullock, who are both quite popular with birds, as they are literally tree people.

Time on the Spies

While on the San Francisco Lovers for season 13, Garcia became friends with Morrow Wilson. Wilson knew that they would be returning to the Houston Spies at the end of the season and that the team would need a new magic expert in the near future. Wilson invited Garcia to join them on the Spies.

When they arrived, Garcia was assigned to the position of the team’s magic researcher. Garcia threw themselves into their work, drawing on their vast knowledge to provide the Spies and the Agency with valuable intelligence and analysis. During a discussion of anomalous locations, the Spies were the first team outside of the Yellowstone Magic to learn about the anomaly that is Bluesky National Park.

Garcia enjoyed their first season on the Spies, but it wasn’t until Season 15 when they made their first real friend. During the Season 14 election, the Spies received former Shoe Thieves player Bennett Bluesky. The two immediately bonded over their respective experiences with Bluesky National Park. Other Spies report that the two have a plethora of inside jokes that no one else on the team understands.

Off the pitcher’s mound, Garcia slowly came to realize that their connection with birds was growing weaker. After a few seasons of contemplation, Garcia made peace with the idea, and let go of their connection to crows. This didn’t stop their love of birds and nature, though. Garcia can often be found walking through local parks and nature preserves, muttering notes on the local flora and fauna into a hidden tape recorder. During off-seasons, they also give tours of these parks to the general public.
