D'Arby the Player, Part 9 (ダービー・ザ・プレイヤー その⑨ Dābī za Pureiyā Sono 9), originally D'Arby's Unknown Ability (ダービー謎の能力 Dābī Nazo no Nōryoku) in the WSJ release, is the one hundred twenty-second chapter of Stardust Crusaders and the two hundred thirty-fifth chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.
Now understanding the controls, Jotaro hits home run after home run. Jotaro is now in lead; four to zero. Feeling confident, Joseph gives Telence an ultimatum: return Kakyoin's soul and guide the group to DIO, and Joseph will consider sparing Telence's life. Telence reminisces his youth with Daniel, and how the master gambler would never challenge his younger brother to a game. He gloats about how superior he was to his older brother, and that he has an ability that makes him unbeatable. Telence switches his pitcher and begins foretelling his pitches. He claims that he will throw a forkball down the middle. He pitches. Jotaro swings for a forkball, but the pitch was a fastball. Jotaro hits it, but Telence is able to catch it easily. With three outs the two players switch positions. Jotaro is starting to figure out Telence's ability. Jotaro realizes that Telence can somehow read his opponents' thoughts. Jotaro's up to pitch and tries to hit the batter with the ball. Telence's hitter leans backwards and hits a home run.
