Transfer student Yamaguchi Tsutomu has just joined the baseball team. Yamaguchi is overweight and can't run very fast, so the coach places him on the "D" team. Unlike the "A" team which is has nothing but aces, the "D" team is filled with baseball misfits who don't expect to see any playing time. Despite this setback, Yamaguchi is determined not to give up his dream of someday becoming a pro second baseman!

I don't really read tons of sport manga, but when I heard that Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, would be doing a baseball manga I could not help but wonder how that would all turn out. Well the result is good sport One Shot that sometimes reminds you of Naruto, but still manage to have a life of its own.

If there is one thing in this manga that definitely remind me of Naruto, then it's the art and that's not really a bad thing. I was always a fan of the art style in Naruto and I guess that if both manga are drawn ...
