“Fox announced several series orders for the 2016-17 television season on Tuesday, with a slate that includes a 24 spinoff and adaptations of The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon movies. But one of those upcoming shows could be of interest to sports fans.
Pitch will follow the story of a female pitcher who becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues. Kylie Bunbury (Under the Dome) portrays Ginny Baker, the pitcher who breaks MLB’s gender barrier with the San Diego Padres. The show also stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar as an All-Star catcher and Baker’s teammate. Mark Consuelos plays the team’s general manager and Elisabeth Shue is Butler’s personal guru.
The show is teaming with Major League Baseball on the series (perhaps not a surprise since Fox is a TV partner with MLB), giving Pitch access to the actual teams, uniforms, logos and ballparks. Real MLB players will also make appearances, though none have yet been announced.”
So there’s a sampling in this song that I really like, starting from 1:12 - 1:36, where this deep baritone voice talks about; “fish growing big on the side of the bowl…”, almost as if he’s narrating an animal documentary. I looked it up today, out of curiosity, and found that it’s taken from THE Chet Baker’s In A Sentimental Mood. How? Why? WHY? Honestly, I have so many questions…idek where to start.
