Entertaining show with a relatable main character but a little mature.

My elementary school aged children watched the first episode with us. They found the story very interesting and easy enough to follow. My only objection kid-wise was really a few instances of bad language and innuendo (ex: main character gets called a bitch by a jealous rival pitcher). But overall the message of hard work and resilience and female excellence in sports was worthwhile. I don't think it's something we will watch with the kids all the time, I would guess later episodes will have more romance/sex than we find appropriate. But we might let them watch particular episodes or scenes after screening them first, because our girls really did like the main character Ginny and were very interested in her challenges and how she was working to succeed.
