ShueAccording to Variety, Elisabeth Shue has been cast in Fox’s female-led baseball pilot “Pitch.”  Shue will play the sleek and confident character Amelia Slater, who’s described as an “image-maker extraordinaire” and Ginny’s personal guru and protector.

Shue joins series Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Kylie Bunbury and Mo McRae in the drama, which revolves around a young pitcher, Ginny (played by Bunbury – picture below), who defies the odds when she becomes the first woman to play in the Major Leagues.
