THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I kinda hoped they'd intentionally throw the game or forfeit and I was seriously expecting a grand slam, but I think I like this ending better.

Well,it would have been kind of unrealistic if they had won the game.Not that a 4th grader throwing 110 kmh pitches is realistic...Anyway,it's fine as it is.

It's for the best that the kids lost the game, and it was probably more touching this way.

It was a fitting end to the game, and it did work out for them which is good. Even Sawamura's dad came around.

My question is, if Goro was so interested in playing baseball, wouldn't he have already scouted out which little league team he wanted to join? It seems like after being told "wait till your 9" he just stopped looking for teams to play with until he was 9, only to find that team had pretty much fallen apart. Either way, hard to imagine that rag tag team of 9 would be able to compete against other teams, seems like they got lucky (or the adults sucked), since they had no fielding skills, and couldn't really bat at all.

The second half of the game was great. Now this anime has grown to a level I'm loving it more every episode.

I just knew that even if they were playing seriously, it was because they were impressed by those kids. That team full of geezers was so nice. I also found Sawamura dad hilarious at the end : ''So what? I'm the only vilain here?''

Great episode yet again. I like that they didn't win, but came close, more believable that way.

Great. So now Goro gets to play with a third-rate team once a week. Way to go for someone who wants to go pro... But who cares, it's anime, everything will work out fine.

The 6 first episodes were awesome and gave me the hope taht it would ba an original sports series that would avoid the usual shonen tropes. Alas, it doesn't seem to continue that way...

Aww that was a sweet ending :)

Actually felt like it was better for them to lose. The fact that their pitcher started messing up because of the rain was also a good excuse for the story to give them a chance for a comeback. Also love that towards the end their manager and the rest of the team wanted the kids to win xD

They lost, but I'm glad that the team won't disappear.

Had a feeling it would all work out even if they lost, glad Sawamura changed his mind seeing their passion for baseball.
