Titre original : Tryouts
Despite losing his bag, ball, and glove Goro has successfully made it to tryouts thanks to Ginumachi Yaginuma, a fellow Japanese who played in Koshien earlier. Goro's first batter is none other than Bolton, who homers off of him on his third pitch, but Goro is advanced in the tryouts. A challenge is given to the 7 rookies who tried out and passed the first test- if they can defeat the Salmons Single A team, they'll all advance to at least the Rookie League. Will Goro fare any better with these Minor League players, especially when only one member of his team can understand him?
