To such a group of farmer boys as the KANO team, “Koshien”, Japan’s high school baseball championship, was a goal far beyond their reach. In 1928 when Taiwan was under Japanese rule, the KANO baseball team started out simply as a club to improve the students’ physique. However, Coach Kondo, giving extremely rigorous training, would completely transform them. The best use of the team’s multiethnic composition led the dream tiled. They were highly motivated. The mind to win got stronger even after numerous defeats. This determination drove them to win the local championship and proudly march into Koshien. But this was not the end. How would they face the strongest opposing team in the final? What would they do when their ace pitcher got wounded?
