Anime News Network describes the manga’s story as such:
”The manga’s story centers on pitcher Yomi Takeda. In junior high, her baseball club did not get far because it lacked a catcher that could catch Yomi’s “miracle ball.” Yomi quit baseball, graduated from junior high, and enrolled at Shin Koshigaya High School. Yomi reunited with her childhood friend Tamaki Yamazaki at her new school. Tamaki has skill as a catcher and can even catch the ball when Yomi pitches with all her strength. Now that the two of them have been reunited, they then aim to bring their high school baseball club to the national championships.”
Tamayomi is a baseball manga series written by Mountain Pukuichi. It is being serialized in Houbunsha’s seinen manga magazine Manga Time Kirara Forward since April 2016. So far, six tankobon volumes have been released for the series, with the sixth tankobon shipped last September 12. The seventh volume will be released on April 10.
