Official League Records
On Season 3, Day 98, Taylor swallowed a stray peanut and suffered an allergic reaction. This lowered their rating from ★★½ to ★ .
On Season 4, Day 43, Taylor was caught in a Feedback loop and swapped teams with Jessica Telephone, changing from the Philly Pies to the Hades Tigers. Having played with the Pies during their victories in the first two season, Spears, alongside Yazmin Mason, became one of the first two players to be on the winning team of three internet league championships. This title would have gone to Telephone had the trade not happened.
In season 7, Taylor gained a half star in batting from the Enhanced Party Time decree. Taylor was then rerolled to 1 star by the Paracuasal Event blessing, and then finally regained the extra half-star due to the Pretty Plz? blessing.
| COMMUNITY LORE|
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
As an imp summoned using demonic magick by the 13th Order of Bloodstone Warlocks, Spears is considered a native resident of Hades. Although most imps are conjured to perform some menial labor, Spears proved to be overly capable as a janitor/hoplite and was instead used as a covert agent by the order, capable of breaking into military installations, noble manors, and corporate headquarters while carrying multiple unwieldy pole weapons.
Following the demise of the 13th Order of Bloodstone Warlocks, Spears was unbound by all fel pacts and able to live and roam freely. They eventually left the underworld to roam Eastern Canada and Europe before reaching the Philly metro region.
Conjured henchmen by nature, imps are known to be impressionable creatures and Spears took on numerous jobs during this wandering time. Spears was approached by Sam Hinkie outside of The Oven three hours before the first match of Season 1 when Sam realized the Pies never signed a Third Baseman. Spears accepted the position despite never watching a Blaseball game. To this day, Spears rejects any splorts representation or sponsorships, calling them "capitalist distractions".
During Season 7, Spears declared themselves mentor to Richmond Harrison. Spears taught Richmond everything he knew about Blaseball, which unfortunately wasn't much. During the offseason, Spears and Richmond then decided to mount a series of expeditions around the world to visit the home cities of other teams and find Blaseball wisdom. It was at their last stop, the infinite Los Angeli, where the pair managed to lose their way in spacetime and encounter their future selves in a paracausal event.
Spears was disappointed to find that their future self wasn't actually any better at Blaseball at all, and couldn't teach them anything they didn't already know.
Spears Taylor was at one time rated the second most anticapitalistic (warning: FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE) player in the league due to a history of throwing literal spears at capitalists. Taylor is perhaps best known for the incident where they threw a partizan at Bees Kneesos, or the time they made the news for clipping Eli Rank with a halberd. They love to steal... those bases!
Taylor has always had an obsession with equipment management, as players typically share equipment harmoniously without an expectation of ownership. Fearful Symmetry has been wary about appointing Taylor to this volunteer role, since they keep whittling bats into stakes and inserting iron tips into the balls.
Taylor has a lifetime ban from the underworld ride-sharing service Lyfe due to several incidents resulting in pierced upholstery. Since Taylor lives in the Sixth Circle Stadium Equipment Manager's Office and has the Hades Public Bus Route committed to memory, the lifetime ban has had no impact on their life (although they have compensated the drivers for the interior damage after Lyfe refused to).
Peanut Vengeance and Feedback
On day 98 of Season 3, Taylor attempted to throw a spear into the heavens in order to bring down the Blaseball Gods themselves. Shortly after this rebellious act, they swallowed a stray peanut and had an allergic reaction. These events are assuredly a coincidence, as is their later banishment to the underworld via feedback.
Since the allergic reaction, Taylor has been prone to shrinking and growing unexpectedly, diminishing their ability to hit and run to bases. However, the new condition has not affected their prowess at throwing spears while playing defensively.
Since feedback-ing from the Pies to the Tigers, Taylor has been provided with, according to onlookers, "just an unreasonable number of pikes, glaives, lances [...] A big pile of loose pole-based weapons." When asked to comment on why, Tigers manager Fearful Symmetry said, "We actually had those lying around already. We've been trying to get rid of them for ages."
When approached by the media, Spears has refused any glory or attention connected to this title, stating such excuses as "I had strep throat during the awards ceremony for Season 1, so I never actually received that award".
Spears Taylor's origins are shrouded in mystery. However, many claim that they follow a similar fate as fellow Pies player Kennedy Cena, being an amalgamation of both Taylor Swift and Britney Spears. Since joining the Tigers, Hades fans have also begun to speculate that they may be a siren instead. Neither of these theories have been confirmed, but eyewitness karaoke reports testify to the beauty and horror of their singing.
