He asks his friend Jimmy Fleming (Mike McGrone) for help in repayment of the debt, but Jimmy pays O'Neill the coaching fee on condition that he coaches the youth baseball team Kikanbus, who is taking care of him. Make a suggestion to pass.
O'Neill isn't enthusiastic at all, but he takes on the coach of youth baseball because he really needs money.
He starts coaching lazily, but the boys he meets are black children who spend their days in insecure areas, scared of conflicts and the sounds of pistols.

Meanwhile, O'Neill got a lot of money in a basketball gambling aiming for a one-shot reversal, succeeded in repayment of the debt in full, and even if he repay it, the money will still be in hand.
Originally, the youth baseball coach took over to repay the debt, so people around me thought that O'Neill who had finished repayment of the debt would definitely quit the coach, but O'Neill and the boys have already developed a bond. rice field.
O'Neill decides to wash his feet completely from his gambling life.

G Baby is a cute cheeky boy who has a small body but is a mood maker of Kikanbus and was loved by everyone. Originally he was not qualified to participate because he was young, but G Baby enters the batter's box because there is no player who can put out a pinch hitter for the last-minute Kikanbus.

Impressions and evaluations of the movie "Hardball Ground"
I don't remember watching TV commercials at that time because I think I wasn't really talked about except for starring Keanu Reeves.
The theater I went to see was probably Ikebukuro's Cinema Rosa, so I think it was open to the public.
So maybe I was invited, so I think I saw it with the feeling that I should look at the leaflets.
I will never forget it. I went to see it with a female director who was indebted to me in a student movie at that time, but I cried so much that I was surprised myself, and on the way back from the movie theater, "I will never go to see the movie again." I was told.
Apparently I was crying too much and the chair was trembling all the time so I couldn't concentrate at all (laughs) I'm sorry. But it didn't help. I bought a DVD and watched it many times at home, but I never cried. I will cry no matter how many times I see it.
It's such a "hardball ground", so I definitely want people who haven't seen it to see it.
I don't think Keanu Reeves is a very good actor, and of course I don't hate it, but I don't really like the work starring Keanu Reeves. "My Private Idaho" is also my favorite movie because I like River Phoenix.
But, I love Keanu Reeves in this work. It's the best. It makes me laugh, and the harmony with the children's acting is wonderful.
I also watch making, but in fact the boys really love it. In the interview, I was delighted that "I can't believe the people in The Matrix talk normally."
And the characters and acting of these boys are indispensable to the splendor of this movie. This is of course for boys, but I think the director's skill was also very great.
I hope you will see "The Ground of the Sun".
This is a recommended movie. please.
