PITCH: Kylie Bunbury in PITCH premiering Thursday, Sept. 22 (9:0010:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX © 2016 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: Warwick Saint / FOX. AIt's strike three for Fox's baseball series "Pitch" -- EW reports that the series, which starred Kylie Bunbury as the first woman to pitch in the major leagues, has been canceled.

"I"m sorry to tell you that 'Pitch' will not be getting a second season," executive producer Kevin Falls confirmed on Twitter.

Bunbury shared a heartfelt Instagram post thanking fans of the show. "Ginny Baker has profoundly changed my life and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role that resonated with so many people. I wasn't ready to let go of Ginny, but more than anything I wasn't ready to let go of my 'Pitch' family- the cast, crew, creators and writers, thank you for the magic... Thank you to all of the fans who took the journey with us! Your support and love for the show has always moved us deeply! I love you all."


Co-creator Dan Fogelman tweeted: "Obviously we're all crushed — thank you to our amazing fans and thank you to our incredible cast & crew. Loved every minute. No way around it: we took a bad hop grounder to the face today. All that said: this team put something original and high quality on TV and should be very proud of it — I certainly am of them."

The series was originally going to launch in spring of 2017, but was moved up to try to capture "Scandal" fans after Kerry Washington went on maternity leave. Baseball did not grab the same ratings as sexy political intrigue, alas.
