Compulsive eater Taro "Lunchbox" Yamada is a new transfer student at Takaoka (Hawk Hill) middle school. A gentle and kind individual, he soon shows his incredible strength in the school judo club. The baseball team soon realizes that he could be useful and brings him onto the team as its "little giant." Before long, Dokaben is the ace hitter on the team, but this brings forth bad feelings in some of his teammates. This typical sports anime was based on a 31-volume manga by Shinji Mizushima, creator of Song of the Baseball Enthusiast. Dokaben also has a cameo appearance in Go for It, Tabuchi.
