Years after the previous series (MAJOR), Daigo Shigeno who is now in elementary school, dreams to become a professional baseball player just like his father and former major leaguer, Goro Shigeno.
Following his father’s footsteps, Daigo joined the little league team “Mifune Dolphins”, but finds his skills lacking and fell under the pressure from his peer players of becoming the second generation. Eventually, Daigo gave up baseball before even trying it out for a year and lived his life apathetically.
Now in the 6th grade, he meets a new transfer student who returned home from America. The boy’s name is Hikaru Sato, whose father is a former major leaguer and a longtime friend of Goro. And the wheel of fate concerning these young lads is about to spin!
