Pitch Night at the Ballpark will be held in 43 different Minor League stadiums and 12 independent and college summer league ballparks across the country during the months of August and September. After the regularly scheduled games, ticket holders will be invited onto the field for various events, such as Kids Run the Bases, T-shirt tosses, player meet-and-greets, autograph sessions and more. Afterward, fans will be able to watch the pilot episode of Pitch on the centerfield scoreboard, with free snacks.
Pitch follows the fictional story of Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury), the first female pitcher in the big leagues. Produced in association with Major League Baseball, the series’ aspirational element pairs perfectly with Minor League Baseball, where teams have been credited with opening up opportunities to women within the game.
Pitch is a production of 20th Century Fox Television. Fogelman and Rick Singer are co-creators and executive producers. Kevin Falls, Tony Bill, Helen Bartlett and Jess Rosenthal also executive producers. Paris Barclay serves as director and executive producer.
Pitch premieres Thursday, September 22 at 9 PM on Fox.
