May 2 (UPI) -- Fox's baseball drama Pitch about the first woman to play in the major leagues, has been canceled after one season.
"I'm sorry to tell you that Pitch will not be getting a second season," executive producer Kevin Falls said on Twitter Monday.
Co-creator Dan Fogelman also confirmed the cancellation on Twitter writing, "I was informed today that Pitch won't be getting a 2nd season on Fox. 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."
Leading up to the cancellation, Fox released all of the show's writers in April.
