What I Liked: The concept was as good as I anticipated. Ginny is likable. Mark-Paul Gosselaar is awesome. His rough and tumble veteran who doesn’t like the change in his world but comes around quickly is reminiscent of every 90’s baseball movie and I’m okay with it.
I think the first episode set things up well. Ginny didn’t blow everyone out of the water. She actually failed but got a second chance. It will be interesting to see where things go from here.
What I Didn’t Like: The twist at the end. It was really unnecessary to reveal at the end that her dad is actually dead.
I’m also not a fan of the documentary-style it has going on. I don’t think its necessary to have FS1 sportscasters weighing in on things. If a character is watching it, fine, but otherwise let’s stick to making this a character-driven story.
What It Needs: Am I the only one that wants Ginny and Mike to hook up? In general, I could just use some steam that doesn’t involve Mark Consuelos being creepy to Ali Larter.
I know Ginny has been so focused on baseball and living in a man’s world that it has been hard for her to make friends but I’d like to see someone in her corner that isn’t a player’s wife it seems she barely knows. Where is her brother? Can’t they be friends so she has someone to talk to?
Prognosis: Good. I like this one. I think it has potential. I am intrigued already and want to know what happens to Ginny.
