Tv Season Info

When Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury) gets the call to play for the Padres, she becomes the first female baseball player to reach the major leagues but she struggles with the scrutiny that comes with her newfound fame. In a bid to keep improving, Ginny finds herself relying heavily on her teammates Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Blip Sanders (Mo McRae), as well as her agent Amelia Slater (Ali Larter). Also in Season 1, Ginny's brother Will (B. J. Britt) sees his sister's success as an opportunity to make quick cash, opening a sports bar in her honor.

Critic Reviews for Pitch Season 1

All Critics (54) | Top Critics (29)

If you're female and you love the game, you may even fist-pump at some point.

I wish this show were better, and less superficial, especially at a moment when another woman may be making headway in another male-dominated institution: the presidency.

Sep 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Pitch is doggedly inspirational. And despite its hackneyed moments, the pilot introduces enough meaty stuff to warrant a wait-and-see response.

Whether Pitch eventually knocks it out of the park or strikes out, it paints an intriguing picture of what could be.

Kylie Bunbury is instantly appealing as Ginny Baker, a gifted athlete with a nasty screwball who is set to break in with the San Diego Padres. It also helps that Major League Baseball is cooperating with the series, bringing some authenticity to the tale.

Sep 7, 2016 | Full Review…

Pitch does a lot of things right... especially in the buildup to her first game. Anyone looking forward to relishing the image of a woman in uniform standing tall on a mound for a professional baseball game should get goosebumps when she does.

And it certainly helps that the show is good; the writing is strong, and I can already see myself falling down a Ginny/Lawson rabbit hole. Perhaps it really will be "The West Wing in baseball."

Mar 7, 2018 | Full Review…

For as inspiring and heartwarming as this story is, Pitch works in large part because the Canadian actress is so likeable and believable. Bunbury's Black Girl Magic isn't the only motivation to tune in.

Aug 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Actually, it leaves a lot of things unfinished, but it still manages to be a powerful conclusion to the show's first season.

Jun 20, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

While there are certainly a number of kinks that need working out and the show's sustainability may be questionable, the premise as a whole and a large part of the execution of it makes it a breath of fresh air among the other fall dramas.

Audience Reviews for Pitch: Season 1

Discovered Pitch on On Demand one lazy Friday night and was surprisingly drawn in. Its solid cast and writing creates just enough angst and drama to keep this girl entertained (despite the baseball setting - yawn). I'm now in the #RenewPitch and #KeepHerInTheGame bandwagon!
