Tokyo, July, 1984: Ten years after the historic 1974 home run-hitting contest between the all-time leading sluggers of U.S. and Japanese baseball, Sadaharu Oh and Hank Aaron get together again to swing for the fences at Tokyo's Korakuen Stadium. While Aaron won the first contest, 10-9, the rematch saw only six baseballs leave the field, four of them hit by Aaron.
