The second match-up saw them win against the San Francisco Lovers 3-2, advancing to the finals, where they defeated the Breckenridge Jazz Hands in a tense 3-2 series to become the Internet League Champions! In the Season 5 Elections, the Firefighters won Katamari which boosted their defense, but lost the election for the Fireproof Jacket (which was won and then promptly discarded by Mclaughlin Scorpler for Noise-Cancelling Headphones instead.)
In Season 6, the Chicago Firefighters went 50-49 (.505) in the season, finishing at the bottom of their new Wild High division. They did not advance to the postseason. To add further insult to injury, they lost the Fireproof Jacket blessing election again, this time to the Seattle Garages' Oliver Mueller.
In Season 7, the Chicago Firefighters went 50-49 (.505) in the season, finishing at the bottom of Wild High. They were the only Wild High team to not advance to the postseason. In the Season 7 Elections, the Firefighters won the Champs in the Making blessing and stole three players from the Season 7 champs the Mexico City Wild Wings. They also won the Hand-Me Downs blessing, which allowed Declan Suzanne to steal Oliver Muller's Fireproof Jacket. The Firefighters were also hit with Shame Bubble, which states that should the Firefighters be shamed during Season 8, they will start the next run with negative runs equal to their shame.
In Season 8, Day 16, the Firefighters and San Francisco Lovers made Blaseball history with the first ever double shut-out. Due to Firefighters being Shamed in their Day 15 match against the Lovers, and starting Day 16 with -1 runs due to Shame Bubble, the game concluded with a score of -1-0 to the Lovers.

After the Chicago Firefighters arrived at the Great Chicago Blaseball Fire and put it out, they stuck around and formed the Firefighters team as it is known today. Since that day, the Chicago Firefighters have played their home games at The Fire House. Like all of us, they are from Chicago.
After receiving the katamari blessing in Season 5, the Chicago Firefighters created a katamari named Mother Blase, with the intent of rolling the world into Outer Chicago. The first location to be added to Outer Chicago was Ocean City - recruiting its mayor, Joshua Watson, as a batter for the Firefighters in the process.
Each player's number corresponds to the Chicago zip code they live in. Players all have their number tattooed on the knuckles of one hand and WAFC tattooed on the other hand.
Players who inherit a number are from the zip code corresponding to their inherited number. If they were not from that zip code, they are now.
The original Chicago Firefighters once had a manager and a coach. Legends claim that the original coach was even Chicago itself. Ever since the Great Chicago Blaseball Fire, the Firefighters have been a player-owned team, as all players are the coach and the manager.
The only other member of the coaching staff is the Third Base Coach. Each game, a lucky fan is chosen from the stadium and promoted to Third Base Coach, gaining the title Coach Casimir Pulaski Day. At the end of the game, the fan is subsequently demoted and their original name returned.
A sentient pile of fire hats wearing a trench coat that seems to have resided in the stadium since the fire house was created, the Bat Hat is a friendly helper that does its best to help the Firefighters. Always there to deliver a sharpened batting axe or pick up a foul blaseball, fans often fondly remember the mind bending break in reality that is associated with not quite fully seeing or understanding how the Bat Hat gets around. The only time the Bat Hat has ever been seen outside of the Fire House is rumored sightings conducting the L train to and from lowest Wacker.
The Axeman is the creator of all equipment used by the Chicago Firefighters. Little is known of their origin, and what is known is a closely kept secret.

All fans of the Chicago Firefighters are from Chicago. Once someone chooses to be a fan of the Chicago Firefighters, they are from that moment on from Chicago. At this time, it is unknown if this changes should a fan no longer support the Chicago Firefighters, as no one has yet been foolish enough to try.
Common chants include "We Are From Chicago" and its variations. It is also commonly shorted to "WAFC" and accompanied by the 🔥 emoji. Occasionally, it is a hashtag. Fans will shout these chants together in unison as a show of solidarity for many events, including winning a game, gaining a point, or even personal achievements. It is considered a greeting, farewell, and motto all at once. When asked, fans indicate that the "we" in "we are from Chicago" either refers to everyone who has ever been and will ever be a fan of the Firefighters, or every being ever to exist. It is not known which of these is the truth.
