Series protagonist Mihashi Ren shows up for the first day of practice at the newly-formed baseball team for Nishiura High School, a small public school in Saitama. Here he meets Coach Momoe and other prospective players, including Tajima Yūichirō (superstar 4-hole batter and 3rd baseman), Hanai Asuza (upstanding and insecure future captain), and Abe Takaya (catcher). Always believing that he was a no-good pitcher, Mihashi looked down on himself, but despite this continued to want to pitch. With the help of his new teammates, Mihashi starts down his jōrney towards the ultimate goal for pitchers: becoming a "true ace." After the team spends a week in training camp, they face down their first opponent, and Mihashi is forced to confront the demons of his past, in the form of his former teammates, the freshman players at Mihoshi Academy in Gunma.
