Program Abstract: The story of Korea's first baseball team is told in this stirring drama set in 1905. Hochang is a scholar's son who is torn between his family duty and his love of sports. When Hochang accidentally discovers America's favorite pastime, he vows to start Korea's first baseball team. Little did Hochang expect that, as Korea prepares to abdicate its sovereignty to Japan, his team would become a national symbol of pride and joy, and a rallying cry for freedom, when the Japanese challenge them to a game.
