The Pitch

The Pitch is a fantastic show hosted by Texas Quidditch team members, Kody Marshall, Sarah Holub, and Jacob Adlis. Marshall is a chaser and Adlis is a beater. I am not sure what position Holub plays. The show starts out with funky music and the line, "do you like to talk about Quidditch? Because we do!" They interview members of teams across the country including LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and the Silicon Valley Skrewts. The focus is rooted in the Southern region, but the hosts have tried to outreach to other regions such as the West and the Midwest.
The show includes a Tips From the Pitch segment in which the hosts demonstrate certain Quidditch techniques such as the weave, bludgering, and tackling. Also, the show is great with introducing names of stand out players to the audience and giving behind the scenes stories.
The Pitch is a fantastic show unprecedented in the sport of Quidditch. With a little more speed, shorter segments, and edited highlights of games with commentary, this show could be the SportsCenter of Quidditch.
