NEW YORK (AP) — Just days after unveiling its Fall 2016 schedule, the Fox network is swapping two of its shows.

Veteran series "Bones," originally set for a fall return, will instead be shelved until midseason, when this lighthearted whodunit will conclude its 12-season run.

In its place Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern, a new baseball drama, "Pitch," is being called up from midseason for a fall premiere.

"Pitch" is the story of Ginny Baker, who becomes the first woman to play Major League baseball under the glare of doubting fans and a media spotlight. It stars Kylie Bunbury ("Under the Dome"), along with Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter, Mark Consuelos and Dan Lauria.
