Ace of Diamond is based on Yūji Terajima’s manga of the same name.

Minoru Ueda (Eyeshield 21: The Phantom Golden Bowl, Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory) provided character designs, while Kenji Konuta (Library War, Blood Lad) took charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll currently streams the Ace of Diamond anime. They describe the show as:
I want to pitch to that mitt again… A meeting with catcher Kazuya Miyuki changed the 15-year-old Eijun Sawamura’s life. He said goodbye to all his friends and knocked upon the door of Seidou, a prestigious baseball school, intent on testing his own strength. There, he met many proud baseball players who were betting everything on the sport! A classic tale, yet new and fresh. All the emotion and excitement of the popular baseball manga is at last coming to television in the form of an anime!
Terajima’s original Ace of Diamond manga launched in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2006. The series ran through 2015, spanning forty-seven collected volumes. The sequel, titled Ace of Diamond Act II launched in the same publication in 2015. The ongoing title spans fifteen collected volumes, with the latest hitting stores on January 17.
