About Big Windup
Most guys can't wait for baseball to start. But not Mihashi. For this kid, the crack of the bat is the sound of failure. Every summer he gets caught in a pickle between wanting to stay on the mound and watching his pitches get blasted out of the park. But each spring brings a fresh start, and this year, Mihashi's at a new school with teammates that don't know how bad he used to be. Most importantly, he's got Abe – a real superstar behind the plate. If Mihashi can learn to trust his new catcher, this could be the year he falls in love with the game all over again.

FUNimation Entertainment will release the 26 episode series in two 13-episode sets later this year.
