* CastFromHitPoints: Ginny's best pitch, the one that got her to the majors, is stated to be a screwball, which no current MLB pitcher throws. The ''reason'' nobody throws it is that it's almost impossible to throw the pitch without putting gradually increasing levels of strain on the pitcher's arm. If the strain gets too high, it results in an injury. The technique to throw it that Ginny learned is probably used as a HandWave to get around this. This finally catches up to her in the season finale when the team's analyst notes that the strain she's put on her arm is far out of proportion to the point in the season and urges her to be benched for the remaining games. She doesn't listen, and pays the price.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The show's second season would have revolved around Ginny returning from her injury and starting work during Spring Training the following season.
