Do It for Grandma
Garcia grew up as a nature spirit in a relatively secluded area of Pinnacle Mountain within Yellowstone Park with their grandmother. They had a small camper with a TV that only had 3 channels: National Geographic, Blaseball Commentary and K-dramas.
They and their grandma LOVED the National Parks and traversed the nation, acquiring as many National Parks Stamps as possible. Along the way, they learned of blaseball and developed a pitching style, naming all of their pitches after the places they visited like "THE BADLANDS BRUISER" and "THE CONGAREE CURVEBALL."
During the journey, their grandmother passed away, and their spirit was reincarnated as a house cat. To this day, Yeong-ho carries their grandmother in a hiking backpack made for cats.
Yeong-ho has collected every single National Parks Stamp, except for one: Yellowstone. Unfortunately, Yellowstone National Park Service is not giving out any more National Parks Stamps until blaseball has concluded. Yeong-ho has decided to take matters into their own hands, to earn the last stamp for grandma. In addition to joining the Yellowstone Magic blaseball team thanks to their pitching expertise, Yeong-Ho still regularly roams the park as a model guest filled with wonder, admiration, and respect for the natural world.
Their grandmother thinks they are very handsome, and many among the park rangers are inclined to agree.
