Both are sports anime of course. The main characters are really talented, but dont realize it. They have a really talented partner on each team that fights to bring out their full potential. Ookiku is more laid back, and sweet with a set of younger people. The main character isn't as charismatic and flashy as Shoyo but they are in some way alike when it comes to not recognizing when they are amazing at what they can do for their team.

Shoyo and Ren are alike in being easliy scared of their oppents. Unlike Ren Shoyo trusts his teamates, but he is still a little like Ren when he isn't playing a game

Though there are a lot of sports anime out there, Captain Tsubasa and Ookiku seem to fit especially well together. Ren in Ookiku is far more obnoxious than most characters ever, but in general the tone of both is similar: a group must rise against all odds to win their goals. Many episodes focus solely on team building and discussion of moves and such. If you liked one, try out the other.

It's true that both Ookiku and Play Ball are about baseball; but beyond that similarity, there is one important thing the two have in common: the absolutely godawful character designs. In Ookiku, it's the triangle bird-like mouth face; in Play Ball, it's the mushy melted candle face with stunted bodies that look flat out strange. Neither is pretty to look at, but both are about baseball... so try this rec out?

Major Season 3

Having turned down a place as Kaido’s ace, Egashira Edawara, Kaido’s agent, still hasn’t forgiven Goro, and his dirty politics deal our hero a devastating blow! Refused entry into every school with a baseball team, Goro joins Seishuu High where baseball has no place and the girls outnumber the boys 452 to 38. Never one to balk at a challenge, Goro decides to set up a new team of his own to use to defeat Kaido; but first he must persuade the few unwilling boys at his disposal to join him before even thinking about how he will train them up to be good enough. Things at home aren’t easy either as his father struggles with the last days of his baseball career. As Goro enters the grown-up world of baseball where being an ace alone is of little use, he must learn to take responsibility not just for his own training but for those of the entire team...

Well, both anime are about baseball, although the main characters are almost complete opposite the series themselves are quite similiar. They work hard but in reallity don’t achieve anything much. Ehh that’s what pisses me off the most in every Major season but oh well life’s not always fair is it now? Still, it’s a really good and enjoying watch for any sport anime fan.
