Kyle’s Choice #1
Tonight, FOX kicks off the new drama series Pitch. From a young age, aspiring baseball pitcher Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury, Under the Dome) was trained by her father (Michael Beach, Sons of Anarchy), and she eventually made it into the minor leagues. Now her big day has come – she’s been called up by the San Diego Padres, making her the first woman to play Major League Baseball. Suddenly thrown into the limelight, Ginny must prove herself to the fans and her own teammates, especially team captain Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Franklin & Bash). The rest of the main characters include team manager Al Luongo (Dan Lauria, The Wonder Years), general manager Oscar Arguella (Mark Consuelos, All My Children), Ginny’s agent/friend Amelia Slater (Ali Larter, Heroes), center fielder/minor league friend Blip Sanders (Mo McRae, Sons of Anarchy), and his wife Evelyn (Meagan Holder, You Again).
I got a chance to see tonight’s pilot during a screening/Q&A with the cast at this summer’s ATX Television Festival. It’s a really entertaining and inspiring story. Since the series is working closely with MLB, they will be using real team names and locations, which adds a nice layer of authenticity to what’s happening in the series. It seems a bit odd that the series starts right as Ginny starts in the majors rather than leading up to this moment over the course of the series. But I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of dramatic stories they plan to tell.
On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a young pitcher adjusts to life in the spotlight after making history as the first woman to play Major League Baseball.
Play catch with Ginny tonight on FOX at 8:59/7:59c.
