Babybay has been an OWL staple since the Leagues’ inception, playing in the first game of the inaugural season with the San Francisco Shock. He was traded to the Atlanta Reign expansion team in Season Two as a replacement for fan-favorite Daniel “Dafran” Francesca upon his abrupt retirement.
While the Atlanta Reign fan-base will surely miss his presence, the full impact of his retirement on the team remains to be seen.
