Notable Events

Move to Hellmouth

Prior to the opening of The Forbidden Book at the end of Season 1, the Sunbeams were located in the Moab Desert. However, once The Book was opened, the desert, stadium, and team were all swallowed by Hellmouth.

Post-Incineration Horne Run

In Season 3, Day 25, facing the Philly Pies, Alexander Horne stepped up to bat for the first time as replacement following Velasquez Meadows's incineration. At four minutes into the game, Horne hit a grand slam Horne Run that put the Sunbeams up 4-2. Meadows's ghost could not be reached for comment, but the ash wisps blowing about Hellmouth Stadium were said to take on a pleasant, flowery odor.

History

COMMUNITY LORE

The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

For more information about the Sunbeams, see Hellmouth Sunbeams/History.

Incineration

The Sunbeams avoided incineration until the tragic loss of Rhys Trombone on Season 3, Day 2. Some fans had been hoping that “maybe a few of our pitchers” would be the target, not their four-star batter. Sun Loyalists have claimed that this was in fact an act of “divine alchemy”, while others believe that Coach Sol was strategically tanking the team in the hopes of securing better draft picks. The continued incinerations, and no sign of improved drafts, have called both theories into question. The loyalists’ response was, “maybe the sun isn't protecting us. Who really knows at this point?"

Team Chemistry

The Sunbeams are known for their great team chemistry. Nobody blames anybody after a loss. They all go get smoothies from the Shadow Moabbey. It is not recommended that anyone not on the team drinks the smoothies from the Moabbey. The players have worked very hard to be able to tolerate those god-awful smoothies, and fans are certainly unprepared.

Rivalries

Lined paper with the following text: do you want to be rivals with me? :) yes :( no :| maybe. A few lovehearts are scattered about the note, and the 'i' is dotted with a loveheart.

How Sunbeams Obtain Rivals credit future kudos [discord]

The Sunbeams have a complicated relationship with rivalries. Rivalry involves wistfully watching their rivals matches, hoping to face them in battle once again. Rivalry involves fiercely defending a rival from others, because only You are allowed to defeat them. Rivalry involves being unable to think of anyone other than the rival, and on dark nights wondering if they're staring into the same sun, cursing your name.

Rivalry also arises from competing for something, and in the case of Blaseball the Sunbeams are competing with the rest of the league. Therefore, everyone is a rival. This results in teams falling into one of four categories: Rivals, Major Rivals, Rivalliances, Anti-Rival.

Major Rivals

Seattle Garages

In addition to the heated rivalry between the two teams, famously commemorated in both song and zine format by the Seattle Garages after definitive wins in Seasons 2 and 3, many fans that follow HELIOATRY clash with Garages fans. The Garages have a stated intention to kill the sun, which is considered blasphemy. This rivalry is most clearly seen in the events surrounding The Solympic Flame.

Chicago Firefighters

After the Chicago Firefighters entered the Season 9 playoffs as the Wild Card seeded against the Sunbeams, the Firefighters threatened to put out the sun. Though unsuccessful in their efforts, a beautiful rivalry was forged from this fateful series, with the two teams skirmishing intensely over who would get the Season 10 Nut Button, the Firefighters threatening again to destroy the sun, and the Sunbeams insisting the sun would consume Chicago.

Rivalliances

The Entirety of Wild Low

The entirety of the Wild Low Clubhouse ((Unlimited Tacos, Houston Spies, Miami Dale, Boston Flowers) have what many teams have named 'similar vibes', and it is a very common to see fans of all five of the Wild Low teams excitedly cheering for each other, or apologising to each other for beating them in the playoffs. An example of this was in the Season 10 playoffs, where Wild Low as a whole were very excited for the Unlimited Tacos to finally reach the playoffs with their new and improved team. Unfortunately the Hellmouth Sunbeams, who were hosting Partytime at the time, got pulled in as a wild card and swept the Tacos in the wildcard match. This resulted in very apologetic fans of the Sunbeams begging forgiveness.

Anti-Rivals

Hades Tigers, the Match Made in Hell

The Sunbeams' original Anti-Rivals the Hades Tigers share a close kinship with the Beams, due to the locational connection between Hades and Hellmouth, as well as the Tigers' overwhelming support for their new neighbors from day one after the Hellmouth's opening. Whenever the two teams play against each other, fans cheer on the opposing team from their reserved sections and can often be heard shouting "TIGERBEAMS!". Both teams believe that when one team wins, both win, and are regularly seen adding the two's scores together into one number to proclaim how well TIGERBEAMS have been doing.

Yellowstone Magic, the Mystical Miscreants

The Yellowstone Magic and Sunbeams partnership has been described as "a match made in spell", bonding over the comparably unusual emanations from beneath their home ballparks and a mutual respect for the surrounding unnatural landscape and wildlife. The two teams have very similar ominous but friendly vibes, and are regularly seen engaging in all sorts of ritualistic nonsense together. Fans are known to cheer HELLOWSTONE as a greeting, which is answered with calls of YELLMOUTH, before the shouts and cheers dissolve into eldritch keening as the fans embrace and excitedly summon horrific beings to have tea parties with.

New York Millennials, the Roommates

The friendship between the New York Millennials and the Sunbeams formed during the Season 10 Postseason. The Millennials and the Sunbeams entered playoffs as the Wild Cards for their respective sub-leagues. Fans of both teams came together to cheer each other on and were ecstatic when both teams swept their opponents. Since then the teams have become very close, bonding over their love of Blaseball, not owning their homes/teeth, and the Marijuana Brothers, Randall Marijuana and Dominic Marijuana. They thrive in the chaos they create when together, yelling out long acronyms and mashups of their classic chants such as "WHOSE BONES? NOT OURS WE RENT!" and "STARE INTO THE HOUSE! THE RENT STARES BACK!". Recently the teams have signed a lease together and are now long-distance roommates.

Rivals

Because of the above mentioned rivalry definition that the Hellmouth Sunbeams work with, it is very easy to tell if you are their Rival.

Is your team a rival of the Sunbeams?

Ask yourself the following yes or no questions;

1. Do you often get handmade cards and propaganda from Beams fans?

2. Does your team exist?

3. Do you see Beam fans staring at you and obsessing over your games?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, congratulations, your team is a Sunbeam rival. Please send a framed team photograph to the Solarium at your earliest convenience so rivalry may commence!.

Gameday Traditions

Every time the Beams score a run, a child is allowed to hurl a pane of glass off the highest part of the stadium wall. This has led to numerous incidents of children trying to use psychic powers to manifest runs, which has been a great boost to the team's morale.

At the end of a winning home game, it is customary for the Sunbeams to dump the team's water cooler on the pitcher. The Hellmouth being what it is, this has resulted in 15 hospitalizations for steam burns this season.

In honor of Alexander Horne's revenge-driven grand slam tribute to Velasquez Meadows, fans of the Sunbeams refer to all grand slams as Horne Runs.

The Solympic Flame

At the dawn of every Season, a fire is started somewhere in the Solarium using the sacred light from the easternmost Blaseball location. To date, the flame has been extinguished by Garages fans before the season has concluded. For more information, see the Solympic Flame page.
