This resulted in the team defeating rival team the Dogdale Barkers, but since Scrooge's rules were not in the rulebook, the team was disqualified. However, the Dogdale Barkers had also been cheating, and so the game ended in a tie. Duckburg also has two professional baseball teams, the Duckburg Mallards and the Calisota Stealers.

History

Duckburg was founded by pioneer Cornelius Coot, although there had been settlements there long before his arrival (most notably, Sir Francis Drake had built Fort Drakeborough on the hill where Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin now stands, and a small colony had developed there, only to die down years before Coot's arrival). For a long time, it was only a small farming village, until the arrival of businessman Scrooge McDuck made it into a large industrial megapolis.
