New show 'Pitch' delivers story of the first woman to play in MLB

May 17, 2016

A number of female baseball players have competed in the minor leagues - Jackie Mitchell famously struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in 1931 - but Major League Baseball has yet to welcome its first female player. Fox unveiled the trailer for Pitch Monday, the story of Ginny Baker (played by Kylie Bunbury), who becomes the first woman to play for an MLB team. It looks awesome.
