McCutchen City is a professional baseball club located in Ianoia’s capital city of McCutchen. Founded in 1894, Addison Eliot – a prominent businessman – organised regular baseball games for his workers from all his businesses, including department stores and quarries located throughout Ianoia.. By 1896, the team became known as McCutchen City and travelled regularly around the country in round robin tournaments and exhibition games. Eliot realised that organised baseball was an effective way to earn money and was one of the most prominent people in the country pushing for a nationalised professional competition, especially after observing the success of professional baseball in Koana Islands. They are one of 10 founding member clubs of the I-League that began play in 1900.
Sitting on the banks of Wigland River that runs through the middle of the city, City play their home games at Newry Court, a site bought by Eliot specifically for baseball. A pitcher’s park, Newry Court gives up few home runs a year with wind typically blow in from the right.
The team officially adopted the nickname Myrmidons (a follower or subordinate of a powerful person, typically one who is unscrupulous or carries out orders unquestioningly), after Athletic Ivychurch owner Stanley Hatton accused the McCutchen City players of following Addison Eliot blindly due to his stranglehold on the city.
