The Alphatown Ionians are one of the Cosmic Baseball Association's original teams first created in 1981. The team originally represented philosophers. Today the Ionians are comprised of both philosophers and scientists in recognition of the fact that in this day and age the two disciplines have, in some significant ways, merged. However, there are many in and out of the Cosmic Baseball Association that believe the two disciplines should be separated, at least on the cosmic field of play. That will not be happening this season but a proposal to split the team up in the future is under consideration.
