“Pitching Love and Catching Faith” is a bit of fresh air, an old-fashioned romantic story about a love worth waiting for. A young man named Tyler challenges fast-pitch softball pitcher Heather Thomas that he can hit her pitches. He is down by two strikes when he finally connects, in more ways than one. Although they have a bit of a rocky beginning, the two definitely have chemistry.
Heather learns that Tyler has never kissed a girl. He is saving his first kiss for a “special girl.” She decides she will be his first kiss. He likes her but is offered a chance to play baseball for the Angel’s organization, and he has a crack at the majors so he doesn’t want to get too involved. However, despite several misunderstandings, they both have feelings for one another and Tyler gives her a purity ring. He makes her breakfast and fixes a picnic lunch for her as a surprise. Will Heather be the first girl Tyler kisses?
