Outline

In the 1980s two great players anchored the Yomiuri Giants: “Monster” EGAWA Suguru and “Weed” NISHIMOTO Takashi. As pitching aces for the same team, the two had a legendary rivalry unparalleled in Japanese baseball history. With two real personages as his protagonists, the author based his bold interweaving of fact and conjecture on exhaustive interviews with NISHIMOTO and other featured individuals.
