Ren Mihashi is a timid pitcher with problems; he has no self esteem or confidence, due to the relentless bullying of his once teammates, and is reluctant to play baseball again. However, at Ren's new school, Nishiura Prefectural High, he finds himself picking up the mitt once more. Along with the help of alumni-turned-coach Maria Momoe, tough but supportive Takaya Abe, and the rest of his teammates, Ren will regain his confidence and show the game of baseball who's the boss yet again!

Score 9.8/10

With all the other sports anime that get so much praise, this one flys under the radar. It is easily one of the best sport anime made and it follows a detail narrative that describe how underdogs can achieve great things with great teamwork and chemistry. I highly recommend it if you love anime, especially sports anime. lead...lead..lead...go!!! read more

Score 4/10

it looks like it will be a good anime to watch even though i dont like sports irl BUT Ren Mihashi was being too much of a Bit-.."baby" for a few to many eps for me.It just got annoying for me. Maybe, MAYBE i'll pick it up again.. read more
