: what is the origin of "get in there and pitch"?

Sure sounds like U.S. baseball to me. In a non-baseball context it probably means "your talents are needed right now". And unless it's a line from a movie, it's a pretty straightforward thing to say to a baseball pitcher, with no idiom or hidden meaning.
