Anime Description: Big Windup!

Big Windup! is an anime about a baseball team made entirely of first-years. The story follows Ren Mihashi, the original ace pitcher for his middle school baseball team. Being placed into the position of being a pitcher by his grandfather, the other players of the team treated Mihashi badly.

Mihashi finally gave up the mound and transferred to Nishura High. He planned to quit playing baseball because of his lack of confidence until he was forced, by the coach of Nishura's team, to become their ace pitcher.

Filled with many players with different personalities and skills to offer to a baseball team, Mihashi slowly becomes more and more confident.
