Overview

YamchaTaitans.Ep.117

The Taitans (Garlic Jr. Saga)

The Taitans are coached by Freddy Hein. Yamcha joined the team after giving up fighting due to the end of the World Martial Arts Tournaments as a result of Piccolo destroying the arena during his fight with Goku. The Taitans are seen playing against the Rockets team, the defending champions, one year before Vegeta and Nappa's arrival on Earth. Yamcha joined the team again after being resurrected after Frieza's defeat on Namek.

The Taitans were still at least known of during the Majin Buu Saga; while mocking Gohan's Great Saiyaman outfit, a criminal asked him if the antennas on the helmet got the Taitan's game.[1]

"Hey, are you a baseball fan? I was a pro for a while. We should get some people together for a game sometime! It's nice to get out on the field and sweat once in a while!"
