Fox's "Pitch" [MLB's Fictional First Female Starting Pitcher]

 Talented baseball pitcher Ginny Baker immediately rises to fame when she is called up by the San Diego Padres and becomes the first woman in Major League Baseball. She immediately sets in on the task of proving herself to her teammates, starting with team captain and catcher Mike Lawson. The two share an immediate chemistry, putting Mike in the middle of tensions between the beautiful new player and certain teammates who don't appreciate a woman out on the mound. Not all of her fellow Padres are so averse to change, with center fielder Blip Sanders providing support through her journey.

 

interesting premise

 

and mc is fine :hat

 

first ep wasnt bad, funny seeing zach from saved by the bell in this and my man from the purple gang in SOA :hat

 

thoughts? 8o

I'm confused. Wouldn't she have to have likely played college baseball and/or gone through the minor leagues. So why would it be such a big deal theoretically. Like a girl in the minors would've been front page news. If she made it through there then her skill wouldn't be a suprised.

Simply because the MLB is 'the show'.

 

True, there should have been a lot of media coverage if her story was written to play in college/minors. But from the previews, it seems that she a Henry Rowengartner type that has an talented arm.

 

We'll see. Zach Morris is her catcher right? Probably will watch the pilot tonight.

they did show her in hs winning her state championship and then getting scouted

 

they mentioned her playing in the minors for a couple years too i think

Isn't there a movie or tv show coming out about the real life story of a female pro pitcher?

She struck out some of the greats (Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig) during the Depression era.

This looks terrible.

Between this show and Lethal Weapon, not sure what Hollywood is doing. They seem to be running out of ideas.

How do you draw a conclusion before even WATCHING the shows?

Easily. I can't suspend my disbelief enough to get past the trailer. It looks terrible. Simple as that.

1st episode was good and believable ... flashbacks give this show a chance to be compelling 

 

if she was going to be throwing no hitters from jump ... i would have been on :| ... i'll continue to watch, especially given the ending

She is the only reason I tuned int. That photo of her in the locker room, and the fact that I assumed it had something to do with young girl who was dominating softball last year or the year before last.

It is very easy to do so based off the topic and actors involved. We do it all the time with movies too, so TV shouldn't be an exception.

I actually enjoyed it, but I don't know if it would last especially if they do a lot of filming on the baseball field. It has to be expensive to keep that up for every episode. I don't know if the story line will pull the viewers they need to justify cost.

I swear I didn't even know that was Zach/Mark Paul. I found out when he was being a mentor to her sort of yelling at her. I was in the kitchen, so I couldn't see him but I heard his voice and I was saying that this guy sounds just like Zach, laugh.gif. When sat back down I realized it was in fact Zach. Happy for him continuing to work .

I liked the first ep. Her and her friend on the team def had to have smashed back in the day. I can see that coming out later and causing a rift between her and his wife since they are "friends".
