This is good. Really good. One of the very few series that made me want more. I picked this up thinking it was just another typical sports series. In a way you can say that, but there's just something else about it that's so compelling... Maybe the anticipation in finding out how well the main character will do or in just seeing what he will achieve? Art is good, plot is average but the telling of the story? Awesome. Extra plus - it had me in laughter more than a few times. Definitely recommended.

The manga starts off with the main character crying and b*tch slapping 11 members of the opposing team, plus the Umpire. Haha! ...It was funny as hell and gave me a very good first impression.

As the plot picks up, it gets a lot better. I couldn't put it down. This has got to be one of the most exciting baseball manga I've ever read. The cast of characters are so unique and likable. Oh, and the art is very beautiful, too. Not sloppy or messy like many shounen manga. The lines are neat, and clean, and very detailed. I also like the main character a lot. I like that he's so simple and good-natured. His uncomplicated love for baseball, and his willingness to train hard to improve is really great to see.

The most frustrating thing about this manga is that every chapter ends on a really exciting cliffhanger. I had to download the raws to find out what happens next. Yeah, it's that addicting. If you like baseball, or sports manga in general, you've got to try this!

This manga is very funny, so far the plot is really good, in fact it could be up to par with major(another baseball manga) it has lots of volumes out in Japan , so I don't know why no1 is translating this great manga.

P.S the reviews are unfair , we need moar sports manga !!

Why such low reviews, this is a funny manga that made me laugh out loud more than a few times. The main character is not some whiny loser but heart warming person who loves baseball, although the supporting characters could be developed more this is a great manga with great art.
