Ace of Diamond ( ダイヤのA, Daiya no Ēsu, also known as Diamond's Ace) is a Japanese shōnen baseball manga series written and illustrated by Yuji Terajima and published by Kodansha.
The series follows Eijun Sawamura, a baseball pitcher with a very unusual change of pitch that has occurred naturally. Sawamura plans to go with his friends to a local high school and play baseball to the best of their abilities. However, one scout from the prestigious Seidou High approaches him and offers him a scholarship and a chance to make it to the nationals. Sawamura decides to pay a visit to the school, and it changes his entire outlook on the future.
Yōichi Kuramochi (倉持 洋一, Kuramochi Yōichi)
Kuramochi is the roommate of Sawamura who enjoys replying Wakana's text in Sawamura's place. He is shortstop who, together with Kominato Ryuosuke, forms a strong pair of middle infielders. He is assigned as the first batter due to his ability to run quickly. He likes to play video games during his free time. He is the person with the closest understanding of Miyuki's personality, despite the catcher's cheeky attitude.
