A/N: This is another story. For those who have read my other stories I have most of the chapters ready. I just got to edit them and tweak 'em a bit. I got the idea for this after reading Heat by Mike Lupica. Good book.

Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto no matter how much I wish I do…D':

Sasuke, his brother, his brother's friends, and Sasuke's friends were walking down a street in a small run down town. It had gangs, thugs, and drunkards. They were preps and thought no one would touch them with the way they were dressed. They had just moved from a different city and they had a gigantic house since they were planning to stay with each other.

"Ugh. I don't like this town." said Ino. "It's so dirty!"

"It's not that bad." said Temari. "It's better than the crazy city."

"T-true." said Hinata. Ino stared at them then sighed.

"You're right. It is pretty nice and different from the city." Ino agreed. Tenten nodded.

"I like it he-" she broke off as she felt something by her bag. She whipped around but was too late. A guy was running down the street with her purse.

"STOP!" she yelled. Everyone turned around to see what had happened. They saw Tenten running down the road after the guy.

"Hey you! Stop and give me back my purse!" Tenten yelled again.

"Come on guys! We have to help!" said Temari. She took off after Tenten. Everyone followed. Sasuke and Itachi were the fastest and soon were past Tenten. They saw a policeman.

"Sir! A man stole my friends purse!" said Sasuke. The police man nodded.

Now, the man was fat. So he couldn't run very fast. But they still took off running after the thief. Meanwhile….


"Come on Sak! You're on my team!" said Sakura's friend Kiba. Sakura nodded. Lee groaned.

"Darn it! Sakura's a baseball prodigy! That means we're gonna lose! Fine. Ryuu! My team and let your youthfulness spread so we can beat Sakura-chan!" said Lee.

"Aww you jus' tryin to butter me up. I ain't no prodigy." drawled Sakura, winking.

Sakura, Kiba, Shino, Lee, Chouji, and Ryuu were playing baseball at the Hokage Park. The teams were Sakura, Kiba, and Shino. And Lee, Chouji, and Ryuu. Kiba and Lee were the team leaders.

Sakura and her friends were the toughest, yet nicest people in the town. They alone could beat up 2 gangs with only the 6 of them. But they were kind so they always let them go.

First up at bat was Chouji. Sakura was pitching. She was the best batter and pitcher at age 17. Everyone in the town thought Sakura should be a professional.

Sakura smiled, winked, then tipped her hat a bit so it covered her eyes a bit. She kicked her leg up….then threw.



Chouji missed. Sakura had thrown the ball really hard.

"Aw darn it!" said Chouji. Sakura smiled.

"'tis awight!" drawled Sakura. "You did good!"

Sakura has an accent. Ryuu is her brother but he got rid of his accent. She moved from Texas to Konoha when she was 8 with her parents. She learned the language but she could never get rid of her southern accent. (A/N: If anyone wants to give me some pointers on the accent that'd be handy!)

Ryuu was a guy(of course). He had red hair and dark green eyes. His hair had black streaks in it and he was about 6 ft. tall. He was lean and was on the track team at school. Just like the rest of their friends. Chouji is actually pretty fast. They are also on the school baseball team, soccer team, and football team. Sakura was a tomboy.

Ryuu and Sakura's parents died when they were 9. When Ryuu turned 18, they got their inheritance. They used to live like they were the kings of the world, but when their parents died, they lived alone in their big house. When they earned enough money, they moved to the little town of Konoha. When they got the inheritance, they sold stuff they didn't need and used the money when they were in a tight spot. But now, they have their own (bigish) house and they're happy. They met the gang when they were 10 and 11.

"GIVE ME BACK MY PURSE!" yelled a voice. Sakura and her friends turned from where they were standing. (which means Sakura was still on the pitchers mound)

"Hey! Ya see that?" said Ryuu. Everyone nodded. They all saw. What they didn't see was Sakura tipping her hat and pulling her leg up.



A baseball hit the guy right in the head. He fell down, out cold. Kiba turned to Sakura.

"You did that?" asked Kiba amazed. Sakura nodded.

"Le's go see wha's gonna happen 'bout the ruckus." said Sakura. "We need to help." Kiba and her friends shook their heads. Southern hospitality they figured. They followed Sakura as she walked towards the man.

A crowd was already forming. They saw the girl that called out, and what appeared to be her friends, crowding around the boy. Sakura pushed through.

"Caisou!" she called out. The policeman, the girl, and her friends looked at her.

"Ah. Sakura-chan! How are you?" asked Caisou. Sakura nodded.

"Mighty fine. How 'bout you and the wifey?" she asked back.

"Fine. Hey Kiba, Chouji, Ryuu, Shino, and Lee!" said Caisou to them. They nodded back too.

"We're doing fine." answered Kiba. Sakura looked at Caisou.

"Caisou. Tha's my baseball righ' there." she said. Her hands were in her pocket and she was looking cool and calm. The girls in Sasuke's group were looking a tad bit envious.

"So. That's your baseball hm?" asked Caisou. Sakura nodded and smirked.

"Yep." said Sakura. Caisou smirked too. Sasuke, Neji, Shikamaru, Naruto, Gaara, Kankuro, Itachi, Kisame, Deidara, Sasori, Ino, Temari, Hinata, and Tenten were confused. Kiba. Shino, Ryuu, Chouji, and Lee smirked.

"So….mound to him?" asked Caisou. Sakura smirked more.

"It would seem so."

"Lefty or righty?"

Sakura held up her right hand slightly.

"You got some arm and aim Sak."

"That's what they tell me." Sakura smirked.

A/N: Hopefully I update soon. Some ideas are from Heat but I'll add my own though.
