Since there are 9 residents of Arkan, and 9 players in baseball, Arkan has adoped baseball as the town's official sport. For the human team, the Arkan Aardvarks, baseball is a constant challenge. If any one of them is unable to play, they must forfeit until the player is well enough to play again.
Their rival team, the Hooded Beavers, are mysterious. They have an advantage because they have more potential players. Nothing much is known about either team.
