This is not your typical boy meets girl, boy accidently kisses girl, boy pursues girl for 30 episodes drama. While the romances develop slowly like other shows, the romance is not the purpose of this drama. It's about the relationships among the town folk, their hardships and an agenda to bring people together and create hopes and dreams through baseball. It's an honest look at poverty and the difficulty it creates. What I enjoy most is the development of lower class suburban culture and aboriginal characters on the eastern territory of Taiwan. The adult actors play very compelling and convincing roles. The story is engaging and the life of the village comes alive. But, there are some glaring shortcomings in the writing where you slap your head and exclaim, "what the heck?" Honestly, this happens too much and I need to knock off a few points. The 2 stars this show received on average is really an inaccurate and lazy way to characterize the hard work of the cast and crew. The filmography is amazing and scenery beautiful, the characters are rich and complete, the people are beautiful. Few shows engage me, this one did.
