I’ll assume that you’ve watched the first season so I won’t bother too much on going over how great this series is and trying to persuade you to watch the rest.

The main character is a guy who is highly skilled in baseball and loves baseball with all his heart. His goal isnt to be the best player on the team, its to help his team members get read more
