Ginny is surprised when she has to play a game against an ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, Al tries to save his job as the Padres’ manager. Get a sneak peek of tonight’s Pitch (“Beanball”).
I think it’s fair to say that Pitch is one of my favorite debuts of the Fall 2016 TV season.
I so enjoy the portray of Ginny Baker’s character and how the show depicts her present (carrying the responsibility of being the first female Major League Baseball player) in the context of her past.
Last week (“The Interim“) we learned how Amelia became Ginny’s agent, and in the process got to meet Ginny’s older brother, Will Baker (B.J. Britt). However, I’m super curious about where Will is now and Ginny’s current relationship with her brother. After finding out Ginny’s dad has passed away… you never know!
This week, we also learned more about Amelia’s past (her difficulty having children and the break-up of her marriage). It also seems that Mike Lawson has experienced some heartbreak too (even though he wants to rekindle a relationship with his ex-wife, Rachel Patrick, she is already engaged to someone else).
But what I enjoyed most was seeing Ginny settle into her fame and use it to stand up for something important to her. When Ginny went on Jimmy Kimmel, instead of talking decorating, she shared her thoughts about gender equality in and sexual assault in sports. As Ginny said, she’s the boss!
I still have some other lingering questions like, if Amelia and Lawson sleep together, what about my Ginny/Mike ship? And will Al really be fired as manager?!
In tonight’s episode “Beanball” (written by Kevin Falls, directed by Ken Fink) :
The Padres are hyped up to play the Cardinals, whose pitcher broke Tommy’s finger in an altercation, but Ginny is rattled when she spots her ex-boyfriend, Trevor, on the team. Meanwhile, Al calls on an old friend to help save his job. (via FOX)
Take a look at clips from the upcoming show.
In the first, we witness the “morning-after” moment following Amelia and Mike’s hook-up. And in the second video, the Ginsanity continues when Ginny receives a special gift and invitation from Drake… yes, THAT Drake!
