Major OVA
After fourteen years in the Major League Baseball, Goro returns to Japan because of a surgery that forced him to quit his life as a pitcher. He is determined to continue playing the game, but now as a fielder in his home country. Trouble arises as Izumi, his eldest daughter, is unable to understand his actions.

10 years have passed. Following an injury that put Goro's career as a pitcher into a standstill, he prepares to restart his baseball career as a fielder. His family struggles with his decisions; especially his daughter Izumi, who doesn't know enough about her father to understand why he is so absent from their lives. Goro will stop at nothing until he's in the game once again; everything is now for the sake of the only gift he has to offer his children: Baseball.
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?
