Sports Network is making its first foray into sports anime in more than a decade.
Sports Network launched in 2010 with a variety of shows and specials including The Bachelor, Football Manager, and Super Street Fighter.
Since then, the network has expanded its portfolio with such hits as the NFL Sunday Ticket, AFL Saturday Night Football, and NBA Countdown.
It is also home to a host of other shows, including the NFL Network’s All-22 documentary series, the NBA Finals, and the Masters golf tournament.
SportsNetwork has launched multiple sports titles, including a football game called The NFL, and a soccer game called Soccer Monday Morning, but the new series marks the first sports anime to launch on the network in more live action form.
The show is based on a manga by writer Yoshihiro Omori, which has been adapted into two anime series and one short film.
The manga is based around the “big brother” of baseball star Shohei Otani.
In the first series, Otani was a top baseball player in Japan.
In this new series, he is a rookie catcher, and is sent to college for a year, but he becomes a star by winning the Japan Baseball Federation’s World Series title.
The second series follows Otani after he retires, and he is given the task of catching baseballs for a new team.
The series will feature guest appearances from other famous baseball players including Yasuhiro Otani, the Japanese baseball ace who was the first to hit over .300 in a major league game in 1968.
Other guest stars include Shohei Kawashima, the legendary baseball broadcaster who had the most winning seasons of any Japanese broadcaster of the time.
In a cameo in the first episode, Otania, a high school girl, talks about how she once watched the legendary Otani play for the New York Mets, before the Mets fell in the World Series.
The two-part series is set to premiere on Sports Network in the summer.
