The South Korea movie, titled "Glove" (directed by Kang Woo-Suk) will be screened on August 27 in Japan. It is about a Deaf high school baseball team.

A pray for a big box office of the movie took place at the batting center in Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo on August 24.

Former professional baseball player SATO Kazuhiro (46) challenged batting a 100 kilo-speed ball. He said, "I was not a home-run hitter. I was able to become a professional player because I was strong in the chance". He finally hit the 62nd ball for home run. "I realized that I became smaller aiming at the target. The movie really taught me".
