Pitch is a sports drama television series that aired on FOX from 2016 to 2017. The show debuted in September 2016 and only lasted for one season. The series tells the story of the first female pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB). Kylie Bunbury stars as Ginny Baker, a talented young pitcher who becomes the first-ever woman to play in the MLB when she is called up to pitch for the San Diego Padres. She is supported by her agent Amelia Slater (Ali Larter), who is determined to protect her client and help her navigate the media frenzy that accompanies her debut.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar plays Mike Lawson, the catcher who becomes Ginny's mentor and close friend as they work together to win games for the Padres. Mike is a veteran of the sport, having played for the team for over a decade, and he sees potential in Ginny that no one else does.

Mark Consuelos plays Oscar Arguella, the General Manager of the Padres, who takes a chance on Ginny and brings her onto the team. Oscar is a tough and no-nonsense boss, but he believes in Ginny and is willing to do whatever it takes to make her successful.

The show explores themes of gender, race, and personal identity as Ginny faces challenges both on and off the field. She struggles to gain the respect of her teammates, some of whom are skeptical of her abilities, and she also faces pressure from the media and the public, who are fascinated by her story.

Throughout the season, we see Ginny grow as a player and as a person, as she faces setbacks and triumphs on her journey to becoming a star in the MLB. She also struggles with the burden of being a trailblazer and a role model for young girls who aspire to play baseball.

The show features a diverse cast of characters, including Ginny's father Bill (Michael Beach), a former minor league pitcher who trains her and serves as her coach; Blip Sanders (Mo McRae), a veteran Padres player and Mike's best friend; and Evelyn Sanders (Meagan Holder), Blip's wife and Ginny's close friend.

Pitch combines elements of sports drama, romance, and family drama to tell a unique and inspiring story of a young woman breaking barriers and defying expectations. The show received critical acclaim for its honest portrayal of the challenges faced by female athletes and its message of empowerment for women and girls.

Despite its critical success, the show was ultimately canceled after only one season due to declining ratings. However, Pitch remains a beloved and groundbreaking series that has inspired a new generation of female athletes and fans.

Pitch is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on September 22, 2016.
