Naruto is set in an alternate universe where Naruto is apart of the baseball team called “Konoha” all of the villages are pretty much rival teams as well.
Sasuke is recruited to another team because he wants to join the major leagues like his older brother whom left his family in the dust for fame and fortune. Sasuke wants to make it to the major leagues in order to prove itachi that he shouldn’t leave his family for fame and fortune (however sasuke does end up getting swept up in the excitement and gets corrupted as well )
Meanwhile, Naruto wants to get sasuke back to the konoha team because sasuke is one of the best players on the team. Sasuke however refuses and states to naruto ” Come and find me when you’re team no longer sucks.”
So Naruto and team Konoha go against several teams in order to prove to sasuke that they are a good team through teamwork and hard training.
It’s an all boys team, but they recruit sakura as a player because she is a heavy hitter. XD
Hinata cheers naruto like always, however it gets a little troublesome when she’s suppose to be the head of her household and not socialize with “peasants” like Naruto, Kiba, shino, Lee, shikamaru, choji etc.
Neji comes to help every once in a while because hinata asks him too, but in reality he secretly loves baseball.

Ino is apart of the local newspaper so she helps team konoha to get noticed.
