He fistfights his peers who hate his passion for baseball, his coach uses him for his own means and the girl he falls in love with is dating the starting left fielder. As misfortune and conspiracies gather against him, Layton is forced to confront his own behavior. Is he a baseball player, or a fistfighter? Along the way Layton finds friendship, love, the art of hitting and eventually himself.
