Voiced by: Miki Nagasawa (JP), Hilary Haag (EN)

  • Blood Type: Type O

The daughter of Hidehiko and Shino Hayakawa, Ryo is the pitcher and captain of the Kisaragi Girls High Baseball Team. Inheriting her father's pitching arm, Ryo has an innate pitching ability — at the young age of 14, she has a 95 mph fastball! She is left-handed player just like her father. She originally planned not to go to high school because she wanted to help support her mother at the family's Oden shop, but she is recruited to the Kisaragi Girls' High School to be the foundation of the new baseball team. Before playing for Kisaragi, she often played as relief pitcher for a local sandlot baseball team, the Wildcats.

  • Blank White Eyes: When she sees Hiroki and Izumi kissing ( Though it was meant as a "good bye" kiss and not so much a "hello I love you" kiss.)
  • Break the Cutie
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father died when she was very young, and she regrets not getting to know him more. He ends up appearing in Ryo's near-death experience, although it's not clear if it was just her subconscious or an actual visitation from beyond the grave.
  • Daddy's Girl: Her interest in baseball was sparked by her father playing catch with her, and she has a tomboy streak.
  • Heroic BSoD
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Izumi's girly girl, and the girly girl to Koharu's tomboy.

Izumi Himuro

Voiced by: Mami Kingetsu (JP), Monica Rial (EN)

  • Batting Order: 4th Batter
  • Defense Position: Third Base
  • Throws: Right-handed
  • Bats: Right-handed

  • Weight: 107 lbs. / 48.8 kg
  • Date of Birth: August 5th (Leo)
  • Blood Type: Type A
  • Hobbies: Playing piano, watching operas

  • Alpha Bitch: Starts out as a jock athlete with contempts towards others and this attitude poses problems in several games.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Oh, God, is she ever this, when it comes to Hiroki. She gets better, though.
  • Cultured Badass: Comes from an upperclass family, a skilled pianist, and a fan of opera whose is so aristocratic in demeanor. She proves to be quite quick in adapting to different sports and excel in them.
  • Determinator: Nothing can stop her from playing, even injuries.
  • Important Haircut: Snips her long hair down a bit to make it more suitable for baseball, as it kept getting in the way of her line of sight. Since she has a very regal lifestyle, cutting it shows she's willing to cast off her proper lady image to enjoy something she really wants to do.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She might not think much of Ryo at first, but she does care about her and her friends in the baseball team.
  • Losing a Shoe in the Struggle: Played for Drama. When her cab gets stuck in the middle of a storm while Ryo is in critical condition, she decides to go out into the muddy bogs to get to the hospital. Knowing the mud will definitely ruin her loafers and by extension her socks, she willingly strips down to bare feet and trudges on without any footwear. Later, the episode focuses on her battered feet to exemply that this was an unpleasant ordeal and that if she went as far as to come to the hospital barefoot, it meant a whole lot to Izumi to make sure Ryo pulls through and to be by her side.
  • Not So Stoic: She is portrayed initially as keeping her compsure and quite rational but........
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Point of No Return: She burns her tennis stuff in one scene and views the act as this.
  • Single Tear: A teardrop patters onto her clenched left fist after she learns that Ryo has regained consciousness in the hospital.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Ryo's Tomboy.
  • When She Smiles: She hardly smiles in the series (her cocky and mean smiles don't really count), but the time she does a warm smile, is at the end of the series, when she hugs Ryo to cheer her up after losing the semi-final, with the promise of maybe trying to win and go to the Koshien tournament next year.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: As she learns to value of team over individualism, she begins to also respect people of inferior status in general and she also learns not to let a Love Triangle cloud her though to do manipulation and concedes defeat in the relationship.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Like Hikaru, she was also MVP of Junior High School Softball Competition in Kansai.

  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Companion Cube: Fifi (her "alien" doll that she talks to on occasion)
  • Driven to Suicide: Subverted. Attempted to kill herself after being traumatized by her mean teammates in response of her being an MVP of the Kansai Junior High Softball Competition. She ended up not succeeding in killing herself no matter how hard she tried.

  • Date of Birth: November 21st (Sagittarius)
  • Blood Type: Type B

A former school dropout, the red-haired thug had to be tricked by Coach Kido into joining the team. She was a star athlete in track and field, and established records for both the 100 m sprint dash and javelin throw.

  • Bad Guys Play Pool: Not evil per se, but she was recruited while playing pool; she's naturally the team rebel.
  • Big "NO!": She yells "No!" when she discovers that Coach Kido tricked her into joining the team.
  • Delinquent: When we first meet her. She had to be lured into joining the team (much to her disappointment) after Coach Kido saved her from an even worse group of thugs (which included a big one).
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Ironic Name: The Kanji for her name roughly translate to "forest village good saint". She is the complete antithesis of that.

  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Due to her former background as a delinquent, she is probably the most foul-mouthed of all the players on the team.

  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Yoko's Girly Girl.

Koharu Hotta

Voiced by: Akiko Yajima (JP), Kira Vincent-Davis (Credited as "Kira") (EN)

  • Batting Order: 3rd Batter
  • Defense Position: Center Field
  • Throws: right-handed
  • Bats: right handed
  • Height: 5' 1.5 inches / 156.6 cm
  • Weight: 110 pounds / 45.5 kg
  • Date of Birth: January 3rd (Capricorn)
  • Blood Type: Type O

The only member of the team with actual baseball experience, Koharu played for a boys' team before being found out as a girl. She grew up on the sea as a daughter of a fisherman, and has developed an extremely powerful swing, dubbed the `Wave Motion Swing` from her years of fishing. Her batting is so strong that she occasionally hits out of the park home runs. She is originally from Tosa, a small city on the Shikoku island (which explains her Southern Accent in the English Dubbed Version).

Yoko Tokashiki

Voiced by: Mayumi Iizuka (JP), Tiffany Grant (EN)

  • Batting Order: 7th Batter
  • Defense Position: Right field
  • Throws: Right-handed
  • Bats: Right-handed
  • Height: 5' 2.5 inches / 158.5 cm
  • Weight: 92 pounds / 41.9kg
  • Measurements: Bust- 33 inches, Waist- 21 inches, Hips- 33 inches
  • Date of Birth: October 10th (Libra)
  • Blood Type: Type AB
  • Ambitions: To be a singer, dancer or actress

Recruited to fill a hole in the lineup, Yoko has very little athletic ability. Yoko is mostly interested in concentrating on a modeling career, but was looking to use the up-and-coming baseball team as a way to stand out from others. She is originally from Okinawa, the southernmost prefecture in Japan (which explains her tanned skin). She left her hometown, claiming to get rid of dozens of boys who wanted to be her boyfriend, and set her heart to a career in modeling.

  • The Chick
  • The Ditz
  • Dumb Blonde: Well, in the world of sports, at least.
  • Dye Hard: Even called this by Seira, who hates her the most for being the least competent.
  • Hair of Gold
  • Large Ham
  • The Load
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Seira's Tomboy
  • Took a Level in Badass: Completely useless when she joins the team and the only reason Kido picked her wsa because they were in desperate need of players and because Kido found her resume amusing. She eventually improves in skill to the point she does her primary job as field player well and she even does far better as a batter than Ryo and Mao (and was essential in breaking the stalemate in some close games).
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Started out as a preppy chick full of herself who only joined the team to build up public exposure and good PR for her celebrity career, choosing midway to abandon the team as an talent agency took interest in her. Eventually she becomes genuinely devoted to the team and mellows down her spoiledness, even giving up a contract opportunity as a model so she can serve the team.

Mao Daidoji

Voiced by: Kokoro Shindo (JP), Shelley Calene-Black (EN)

  • Batting Order: 8th Batter
  • Defense Position: Catcher
  • Throws: Right Handed
  • Bats: Right-handed
  • Height: 5' 9 inches / 175.5 cm
  • Weight: Not Given
  • Date of Birth: March 3rd (Pisces)
  • Blood Type: Type A
  • Hobbies: Judo

Plucked from the judo team, the imposing but incredibly-bashful Mao is the only person who can catch Ryo's pitches. An excellent team member when she can overcome her personal shyness.

Kanako Mita

Voiced by: Rumi Kasahara (JP), Aninda Praptingtyas (EN)

  • Batting Order: 6th Batter
  • Defense Position: Shortstop
  • Throws: right-handed
  • Bats: right-handed
  • Height: 5' 3 inches / 160.3 cm
  • Weight: 107 pounds / 48.8 kg
  • Date of Birth: June 6th (Gemini)
  • Blood Type: Type A
  • Hobbies: Reading
  • Specialty: Disguise

Kanako is an excellent baseball player and is the daughter of the school's principal who is against the baseball team in the first half. During this, Kanako has to disguise herself as Tami Konaka (小中 多美 Konaka Tami?), a pseudonym which is an anagram of her name, to be able to play for the team. She has a kind of geeky attitude, and she wants to be a doctor. But she also likes baseball, and wants to play baseball during her high school years. Kanako was also previously a softball star in junior high, and Hikaru recognizes her from their previous encounters in softball games.

  • Adorkable
  • Wig, Dress, Accent: Had to disguise herself with a green wig to avoid having her father - the principal who disapproves of the team - find out she's on the roster. Lampshaded when she mentions how odd that all it takes is a wig for a father to not recognize his own daughter.

Voiced by: Taeko Kawata (JP), Jennifer K. Earhart (EN)

  • Team Position: Manager
  • Height: 5' 3.5 inches / 161.7 cm

Team manager and part-time cheerleader, Nene is a constant bundle of energy, but knows little of the sport of baseball (learning all she knows from sports manga). A perpetual ditz, Nene is constantly interested in any hobby or ability she can discover. She also sometimes act as a replacement coach, if Coach Kido is absent or late due to hangovers.

The President of the Kisaragi school organization and the person who initiated the creation of the Kisaragi Girls baseball team, as well as Izumi's mother.
