Takao Taniguchi enters the Nakano baseball club and fights his way to the top, determined to lead his team to victory in the national finals. Manga artist Akio Chiba specialized in baseball (his other big hit was 1973's Play Ball) and this adaptation of his 1972 manga was soon followed by a second TV movie later the same year. The two incarnations were recut into a 95-minute movie release in 1981, and the story finally received a full-length TV series in 1983, supposedly because of a "great critical reception," though a serial had been planned from the beginning.
