Fox has canceled freshman drama “Pitch.”

The baseball drama will not return for a second season, executive producer Kevin Falls shared with fans on Twitter.

“I’m sorry to tell you that @PITCHonFOX will not be getting a second season,” Falls said. “Thank you to our faithful fans for trying so hard to save us.”

Kylie Bunbury played Ginny, a young female pitcher who becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues when she’s called up by the San Diego Padres.

The cast also included Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter, Mark Consuelos, Dan Lauria, Michael Beach, Bob Balaban, Mo McRae, Meagan Holder and Tim Jo.

The show was not a ratings hit, but developed a cult following, particularly among baseball fans.

Dan Fogelman created the show with Rick Singer. Fogelman, Singer and Falls all served as executive producers alongside Tony Bill, Helen Bartlett, Jess Rosenthal and Paris Barclay, who directed the pilot.

“Pitch” is one of the first shows of the season to be canceled, along with shows like CBS’ “Doubt” and ABC’s “Time After Time.”
