I would suggest Touch of course, by the same author (it's a common theme for Adachi). Truthfully you might want to look at a bunch of his works. Although in my opinion Touch and Cross Game are the best.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is another that has the type of romance you are identifying, but is mainly focused on other plot elements. Childhood friends, childhood trauma, serious guy, a "light" tsundere, etc.

I would also suggest Crest of the Stars and the sequels Banner of the Stars.

Maison Ikkoku is an older work that is actually more focused on the romance, but I think would be something you would enjoy if you enjoyed Cross Game.

You might even like Space Battleship Yamato with the understated romance.

Maybe Last Exile would be good to check out.

Ano Hana might also be to your liking. (The original one)

I didn't finish, but I heard that Hanasaku Iroha developed in that direction.

I've heard Steins Gate is a good romance, might be worth looking into (it's on my watch list)
