    The new show Pitch on Fox about the first female pitcher is really good.

    What a great show the premiere was tonight.
    If you haven't heard of it, it's about a 23-year-old woman named Ginny Baker who becomes the first female Major Leaguer. She's a pitcher for the San Diego Padres.

    It had real announcers like John Buck and John Smoltz, and analysts from the MLB network.
    Baker's catcher is Mark-Paul Gosseler who was Zack on Saved by the Bell, but he's almost unrecognizable with a thick beard. And her manager is the dad from The Wonder Years.

    The premiere tonight had good writing, likeable characters, especially Ginny and the ending was unexpected and sad. Ginny is strong-willed, but vulnerable and nervous so you root for her. She knows she can't throw as hard as men, so she worked with her dad since she was a kid to perfect a certain pitch to give her an advantage.

    If you missed tonight's first show, you can probably find it online or your cable on demand. It's on every Thursday night. I hope it gets good ratings and lasts awhile, though I'm not too optimistic since it's a sports show and those rarely get great ratings.

    I missed it. My wife was telling me about it and she thought it looked like a good show. I'll have to watch it on demand.

    Hmm. I thought the previews looked absolutely awful with terrible acting and an extremely forced premise. Anyone else see it?

    I was listening to a sports show last week and a customer said hey did u see a woman is pitching in the major leagues now? He thought the commercial was for a game, not a show
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    It was decent. I'll tune in for episode 2 and see how it goes from there.

    It was ok. Her mechanics suck though so I was having a hard time watching her throw.

    Sounds like Eastbound and Down in its first season or 2. Danny McBride's mechanics seemed to improve as it went on. Damn I miss that show.
    Currently looking for the following:
    -90's Bagwell and Biggio rare inserts & parallels
    -Carlos Correa, George Springer
    -2015 Heritage HN Action RCs of Correa, Bryant, Lindor, Syndergaard, Gallo, Buxton, Russell, Rodon

    It's got a 92% rating from 31 critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
    But it came in third place in TV ratings in it's time slot last night, so it may last only one season. Fox has tried so many sports-related shows and they rarely last long. I have a feeling they're going to ruin this show by turning it into a soap opera like Empire to try to get those viewers.

    To me it seems too much like a night time drama. She cries. She's rejected. Gets hate mail. She dominates. She falls in love with a team mate (insert after game shower scene), she cries some more.

    I know this is completely arrogant of me to say after seeing only the previews. But I won't be watching.

    I'll pass. I am tired of the media trying to shove "diversity" down my throat. This show is no different. When youre watching that show again, take notice of the commercials. Specifically the alarm system commercials.. notice what the burglar looks like...the person playing the burglar on those commercials is not the kind of person I worry about breaking into my home while I sleep. Netflix and Youtube only for me. A lot of brainwashing going on in television shows/commercials to try to hide the truth.... this show is a prime example.. Now the First 48..THAT is show where one can learn all they need to know about this country..
