The series follows Eijun Sawamura, a baseball pitcher with a very unusual change of pitch that has occurred naturally. Sawamura plans to go with his friends to a local high school and play baseball to the best of their abilities. However, one scout from the prestigious Seidou High approaches him and offers him a scholarship and a chance to make it to the nationals. Sawamura decides to pay a visit to the school, and it changes his entire outlook on the future.
Raichi Todoroki (轟 雷市, Todoroki Raichi)
Raichi is on the main batting lineup for Yakushi Highshool. His father, the coach of the team, used to have him practice his swing everyday to earn money in the future, so he is able to hit many different types of balls with a perfect swing. His father encourages him to bat well with the promise of food, such as tonkatsu. His bat is named Money Tree. He is rather quiet in school but he's the loudest one on the team. He is known for his unique "kakakaka" laugh, which he does when he's excited, particularly about facing challenging opponents.
