A new series on Fox looks at the fictional life of  Ginny Baker, an incredible female baseball pitcher that joins a major league baseball team.

The show features actress Kylie Bunbury, who makes history when she's called up by the San Diego Padres. 

Ginny Baker, isn't written as the type of pitcher who can throw 100 mile per hour fastballs. Instead she's modeled her after pitchers who use guile and accuracy, and she's also given a secret weapon ...  the screwball pitch.

A Martinez talks to co-creator and executive producer Rick Singer and executive producer Kevin Falls.
