Plot concept: Swing For The Fences!
Hot off the heels of their first win, the players of Nishiura High School are fired up for the rest of the summer tournament! Their next opponent, Sakitama High, has an incredibly strong batter. If Nishiura wants any chance of winning, Nishiura will need a quick shutout win! This should be doable for Mihashi and Abe since they continue to make a great battery, but at the same time, could Mihashi’s reliance on Abe’s signaling spell trouble in the games to come?
Hits and sprints, pains and sprains… Mihashi and team have quite a struggle ahead of them if they want to play on the legendary field of Koshien Stadium!
