Major Movie: Yuujou no Winning Shot

Major Movie: Yuujou no Winning Shot

For Goro Honda – now Goro Shigeno – leaving his friends in Mifune was a difficult experience. Not that there’s much time to dwell on the past – no sooner has he moved schools when another team demands his exceptional baseball skills! This time, Goro joins Hakata South, a little league team that hasn’t won a major competition in years and has a coach with a bad attitude. What’s more, although Goro quickly establishes himself as the ace with positive results, this triggers some bad feeling amongst his peers. Add to that his severely damaged shoulder and worrying developments in his adoptive family, and it looks like Goro’s troubles are far from behind him.

Hiro Kunimi loves baseball and was the star pitcher of the youth team until he injured his elbow. Much to the dismay of his friends, Hiro has decided to give up his beloved baseball, even going so far as to burn his glove and enroll in one of the few schools without a baseball club. Hiro then joins the soccer club and decides to throw himself into the sport. One day, in a bid to humiliate the Baseball Fan Club – run by the clumsy Haruka – the Soccer Club challenges them to a match. Disgusted by their arrogance, Hiro decides to quit the Soccer Club halfway through the game and joins the Baseball Fan Club instead! It seems that Hiro’s desire to play baseball and his dream of reaching Koshien are too strong to simply ignore after all.

Having flown high in the Major Leagues for many years, Goro is suddenly struck with an injury that destroys his pitching arm. Life has always thrown him curveballs, but this time there’s more at stake than just fame and glory – namely, the respect of Goro's kids and their love of baseball. With the hopes of his family weighing on his shoulders and memories of his dead father clearer than ever in his mind, Goro decides on an unusual route back into professional baseball. But is he right to push for an unlikely dream when it compromises his fatherhood, or should Japan’s greatest pitcher admit defeat and finally hang up his glove?
