Kojima lets himself get hit in order not to lose. He gets Tokuchi to join the Lycaons. Tokuchi negotiates an astounding contract that looks very much to be in his disadvantage with the Owner of the Lycaons. The Owner is shocked when he receives the amount he is to pay Tokuchi after the pre-season game, which is the first game Tokuchi plays in. In the second game, which is against the Fingers, Tokuchi retires all the batters.
