Plot Summary: Baseball manager J. Shuro met legendary pitcher Eiji Sawamura as a child in the Philppines during WWII, and heard of Sawamura's dream to have Japan fight America on the baseball field rather than the battlefield. After Sawamura's death Shuro decided to take on his dream by finding nine men who were born nine seconds after 9:09 on September 9, 1954 (the 29th year of the Showa Era). With a baseball-shaped mark on each of them, these men will form Team Astro, the greatest baseball team the world has ever seen.
