Oh Hye-Sung (Yoon Tae-Young), who excelled at skipping rocks as a child, loved Choi Eom-Ji (Kim Min-Jung). As childhood friends Choi Eom-Ji made Hye-Sung's life warm. Ten years later Oh Hye-Sung has become a baseball player and meets Eom-ji again. She is in a relationship with another childhood friend Ms Dong-Tak (Park Sung-Min).
One day, Hye-Sung hides his injury as a pitcher and throws a perfect game. After that performance he disappears. Several years later, Hye-Sung shows up with other baseball players who have sad stories and are thought of as cast-offs. They are known as "Kyong-pyoii Woeinjudan".
- Based on a popular comic by Hyeon-se Lee titled "공포의 외인구단" (Kong-pyoui Woeinjudan = Horror Alien Baseball). The 1986 film "Lee Jang-ho's Baseball Team" is also based on the same comic book. The "alien" term refers to people on the fringes of society rather than extra-terrestrial beings.
- "Strike Love" was originally scheduled to have 20 episodes, but due to lower than expected television ratings has been shortened to 16 episodes.
