Pitch TV series about first woman in Major League baseball

Kylie BunburyHistory is being made.

Fox will debut baseball drama Pitch this fall. The series tells the story of Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury), a young black girl who goes against all odds to become the first female pitcher in Major League Baseball.

Lead actress Kylie Bunbury says her character Ginny is “really intriguing, and I really wanted to take that journey.”

We see Ginny as a young girl. Her supportive father tells her she’ll never have the arm to play in the majors — and that’s why they need a secret weapon. The two develop a strategy (don’t worry — it doesn’t involve steroids).

Kylie adds, “I think I’m going to do the baseball fans proud.”

Pitch premieres Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 9/8c on Fox.
