Major Season 1

Major Season 1

Goro Honda is a little boy who is obsessed with baseball. As a child, he watches his father, a professional baseball player, be removed from the Blue Oceans’ main team due to a shoulder injury that left him unable to pitch again. However, since his son looks up to him more than anyone else in the world of baseball, Goro's father decides that he can't quit just yet (as pitching is not the only way to be able to play baseball!). With his father's shining example, Goro decides to never give up as well, working his way into the Japanese Little League as a force to be reckoned with!

Both are great quality sports anime with great effects and special talents like high-speed running in Eyeshield 21 and high-speed pitching in Major. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.

Both of these are sport type anime with a rather main character. Although one may say that these shows have nothing at all in common, I don't agree. Both main characters were forced to participate in race/match which began their love to the sport. Both shows are harsh at times but mostly they are rather lighthearted and fun to watch. I don't think you will regret after trying them out.

Suzuka

Suzuka

Yamato Akitsuki has recently moved to Tokyo, and in order to maintain his less than wealthy lifestyle, he currently works at his aunt's bathhouse. While walking by the school one evening he sees a girl by the name of Suzuka practicing the high jump, and is instantly in love. Even better is the realization that Suzuka lives next door! Determined to prove himself worthy of her affections, Yamato decides to join the school's track team and show her what he’s got, but things won’t be so easy; for Suzuka has a love interest of her own, and it isn’t Yamato...

Great sports anime's both. Allthough Suzuka is more revolving around the relationship sometimes. 

Air Gear

Air Gear

What if roller skates had high power engines that enabled the skaters to do stunning new tricks that defy gravity? What if you saw a beautiful girl effortlessly glide through the air with them? To Ikki, this is reason enough to secretly borrow a pair of Air Treck skates, and step into an underground world filled with gang fights and strange customs. Enamored with high-flying stunts and the flirtatious Simca, Ikki forms an Air Treck gang of his own and starts a life of fighting rival gangs and flying over the rooftops, chasing the girl always one kick ahead of him.

And so there you have it

Taishou Yakyuu Musume

Taishou Yakyuu Musume

The year is 1925 and Japan is still a country with socially backwards views, particularly on women's rights. One young girl named Akiko Ogasawara decides to fight for equality in her own way - by forming a girls' baseball team! She soon enlists her good friend Koume Suzukawa, and it's now up to the two of them to put together a team of like-minded and spirited young ladies. Under the able and enthusiastic tutelage of English teacher Miss Garland, the girls will need to bond closely, learn well and practice hard if they are to stand their ground against boys' teams and show a misogynistic society exactly what they're made of... while having some fun in the process.

Both anime feature someone learning about a sport they never thought they would play. They have a good mix of action and comedy, and show how being part of a team can help someone discover how strong they can really be.
