The HEARTLAND CAPITALISTS are the Cosmic Baseball Association's team of businessmen, entrepreneurs and capitalists. Originally the team consisted primarily of economists, however since Peter Drucker took over ownership of the team the trend has been to draft successful business managers. All six rookies on this season's team hold high level executive positions at large corporations.
