Sun Dong-Ryul (Yang Dong-Geun) signed with the Korean professional baseball team Haitai Tigers in 1985. Choi Dong-Won is driven by the desire to become the best pitcher in South Korea. Sun Dong-Ryul is a rising pitcher, blessed with natural talent. Baseball fans and the media are all obsessed with who is the better pitcher. Their teams, however, are reluctant to have their ace pitchers face off against each other due to the insane amount of pressure that would fall on them. The Korean government uses the pitchers for the own political reasons. The two top pitchers also have their own problems. Choi Dong-Won suffers from a shoulder injury, while also feeling like he is now cast behind the shadows of Sun Dong-Ryul.
