TV show description:
This dramatic series follows the inspirational story of a young pitcher who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball.
A beautiful, tough and gifted athlete, Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury) is vaulted into instant fame when she’s called up by the San Diego Padres to make her Major League debut. Like any rookie, Ginny must prove herself to her teammates.
Foremost among them is Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), the team’s ruggedly handsome star catcher. There’s instant chemistry between them, although neither dares to admit it. After all, Mike is captain of the team and a few of his players don’t even want Ginny on the field. One of the players watching Ginny’s back is center fielder Blip Sanders (Mo McRae), an old friend from the minor leagues.
Guiding Ginny is her agent and confidante, Amelia Slater (Ali Larter). Amelia saw Ginny’s star potential early on and left her previous job as a Hollywood publicist to concentrate on the young phenom.
Although she’s been groomed for this moment by her demanding father, Bill Baker (Michael Beach), the end of Ginny’s improbable journey is the beginning of an almost impossible one. She’s representing her gender as she embarks on a successful baseball career under the glare of the white-hot media spotlight.
Episode #10 — Don’t Say It
Ross warns the Padres that Ginny is dangerously close to her pitching limit, but management is reluctant to end her season. Meanwhile, Amelia confronts Will about money that has gone missing from the restaurant fund.
First aired: December 8, 2016
