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 be more
...autiful 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.

    The Interim

    Something tells me Ginnsanity isn't coming to an end any time soon! 

    I've noticed the reservations about Pitch. One of the common criticisms was that its premise is not suited for a television series, because there is no longevity in a series about a female athlete in arguably one of the most boring sports.

    As I recall, there was similar apprehension about Friday Night Lights, and it went on to last several seasons. Arli$$  did well, and Ballers is currently doing well. The Game lasted longer than anyone anticipated and Coach is a classic.

    It can be done. After Pitch Season 1 Episode 2, I think Pitch can do it. It has all the potential to be a great series.

    Pitch is about Ginny Baker. Sure, she's the first female pitcher in the league, but that's not all that she is. So how does one sustain a series about a female in baseball? By recognizing that Ginny is a 23 year old woman still trying to navigate life and figure out who she is....

    The Padres were kicking ass and taking names! Literally.

    With episodes like Beanball (formerly known as Double Switch) Pitch may make a baseball fan out of me yet!

    Pitch Season 1 Episode 3  gave us more background on Ginny via flashbacks and better insight into Al, Oscar, and Frank.  There was slick backroom scheming, a hookup, a brawl, an unexpected bromance, hilarious one liners, and loads of sports action!

    There isn't much to complain about. It was the strongest episode so far, of a show that just keeps getting better!

    Let's get that hookup out of the way, shall we? 

    I like Amelia and Mike individually. Hell, I don't even mind the two of them together. I can see why the two of them would be drawn together. They both have their fair share of baggage and are a bit, emotionally damaged, for lack of a better word. 

    But the drawback is that it's going to be messy. The two people closest to Ginny, hooking up and...

    The Break

    What an emotional episode!

    The best thing about Pitch is that it quite simply is a show with a lot of heart. 

    For the most part, Pitch Season 1 Episode 4 was a quiet episode. It was a much appreciated breather after the fun and excitement of Pitch Season 1 Episode 3. It did what this show excels at doing, which is delving deeper and slowly unraveling layers to not only Ginny, but all of the great characters she's surrounded by.

    It took a bit, but we were finally properly introduced to Ginny's mother. I don't know about many of you, but I had been curious about the state of her relationship with her mom for some time. Up until this point, she had been mostly absent from the frenzy that has surrounded Ginny, and that just seemed odd.

    So it wasn't surprising to see Ginny begging Evelyn to stay with her, or relying on Amelia, and even Mike to act as a buffer between her and her mom. There was some clear tension there.

    Pitch really loves playing with our emotions. I for one had no idea trades could be so stressful!

    My feelings about Pitch Season 1 Episode 5 are mixed, but I commend the show for squeezing some emotion, any emotion out of me each and every episode. I'm no robot in cleats, more like a robot in Converse, but Pitch always gets to me.

    Unfortunately with the MLB trades, those damn flashbacks, the state of Ginny's personal life, Oscar, and that ending all of my Pitch feels this time around were not warm and fuzzy ones. 

    None of the revelations this week were particularly shocking. In fact everything was rather predictable roughly halfway into the episode. But I didn't mind the ride to the end too much. 

    I'll start with the tragic flashbacks. I appreciated the fact that the flashbacks coincided so well with what Ginny was dealing with in the present. The fear of losing Blip and the Sanders family for one, and actually losing Tommy for th...

    Wear It

    It has been a fantastic week for baseball. The Cubs won the World Series, and this quiet little show about a female pitcher in the Leagues continues to break boundaries, barriers, and hearts! 

    I didn't expect much out of Pitch Season 1 Episode 6, but by the end of the episode, I was speechless. I certainly didn't expect to be sitting in the middle of my hotel room on the verge of bawling my eyes out.

    This show is amazing. It's so multi-dimensional and touching. There's a reason why fans are so drawn in, and are passionate enough to trend #RenewPitch hours before the episode even aired. It moves people.

    "Wear It" was probably the best episode to date. I may have said that once or twice before, but the show truly does get better with each and every episode. It's amazing how they're able to flesh out these characters and make this storyline so compelling.

    But where this episode differs from anything before it, is the fact that it isn...

    Holy Hotness!

    There were many things to love about Pitch Season 1 Episode 7. The equal opportunity nude fest for example. Then of course there was the tension between Livan and Mike, the peek into Mike's past, and bonding between Ginny and Al.

    What's not to enjoy?

    It's funny, after the bombshell at the end of Pitch Season1 Epiosde 6, I fully expected the episode to be completely dedicated to the fallout and damage control. I was expecting a full hour of Ginny being embarrassed, her teammates being jackasses about the whole ordeal, and those closest being disappointed.

    I was expecting a serious hour and a hell of a lot of mainsplaining before we got to a lukewarm moment of empowerment at the end. 

    Thank God it was absolutely none of that. In fact the episode was lighter than I ever could have imagined and the more serious moments revolved around Mike, who dominated the hour.

    Unstoppable Forces & Immovable Objects

    Holy Crap! 

    Pitch is nearing its finale and is in no way losing momentum!

    Between the tug-of-war between Amelia and Will over Ginny, and the wicked game of chess between Charlie, Oscar, and Mike, the only shortage of games being played on Pitch Season 1 Episode 8 was the actual delayed baseball game!

    Then it all came crashing down with a single word.

    I'm really bummed about Will Baker. He was such a supportive and sweet brother when we first saw him on Pitch Season 1 Episode 2. He did the responsible thing and handed the reigns over to Amelia, for the sake of his sister's career. 

    What the hell happened?

    I welcome seeing B.J. Britt on my screen any chance I get, but was so disappointed to see how Will turned out. I just wanted her to have one family member she could really count on. Jeebus, her father's dead, and she and her mother have a strained relationship!

    I'm grateful that they finally addres...

    AHHHHHHH!!!!

    What an episode! I really love this show and I don't know what I'm going to do with myself once it's over! The fact that it's fate is up in the air only makes it that much more emotional.

    Speaking of emotional, Pitch Season 1 Episode 9 knew how to take us for a ride! From beginning to end it had me sitting on the edge of my seat, gritting my teeth, and occasionally making obscene gestures at a character or two. Charlie. It was totally Charlie! 

    Again, I cannot gush enough about Mark-Paul Gosselaar and his performance as Mike Lawson. He does a remarkable job bringing Mike Lawson to life. He's such a lovable, relatable, human disaster, gruff character but he has so much heart and knows how to rip yours out with things as simple as the delivery of a line or a look. 

    I'm more than familiar with a lot of MPG's work, but Mike Lawson is probably hands down, some of his best work to date. He's one of the many things that make...

    Season 1 Finale  Will Ginny Pitch a No-Hitter? Everything comes to a head during the Pitch season 1 finale, "Don't Say It." Mike and Ginny have to navigate their friendship after their almost-kiss, Blip gets into a fight with both Mike and Evelyn, and Ginny fights with both Will and Amelia. It's a mess. On top of all this, Ginny starts pitching a no-hitter. But will Oscar's warnings that she's overdoing it come true?

    Will Ginny Pitch a No-Hitter?

    "Don't Say It" begins with Ginny pitching a no-hitter. Everyone's so tense and superstitious that no one will even talk to her, sit next to her or say the word 'no-hitter.'

    When Pitch flashes back 36 hours earlier, though, an analyst tells Oscar that he thinks they should pull Ginny from the season. Oscar then calls Mike into a meeting and tells him that the analyst suggested that Ginny should be pulled out of the season because she has too much "wear and tear." Mike says she should keep playing. Blip overhears them, though, and says she's run out o...

    Ginny and Mike's Feelings Come Out

    Pitch's "Scratched" definitely complicates things before the season one finale. With Ginny and Mike both believing that Mike's leaving for Chicago, their true feelings finally come out.

    Mike Gets His Curtain Call

    Pitch's "Scratched" begins with news speculation that Mike is leaving the Padres for the Cubs. Mike gets a call in the locker room while everyone's watching the news. It's a guy from the Cubs. He says they could win with him as catcher, and he wants him there in two days.

    Ginny then finds Mike and says she can't stand the "Mikeomania" with everyone obsessing over him. She's convinced Mike won't leave the team. They're only seven games away from the Wild Card. Would he really leave? Maybe, if going to the Cubs guarantees him getting to the World Series and finally getting his ring.

    Amelia also asks Mike if he's really leaving and says that he should say goodbye to the people who matter to him - like Ginny. Charlie and Oscar, mean...
