Is there a reason the join to idpitcher is not a left join, like the other joins to alias.identity are? If it were, then this join could also be removed by the planner, and then you wouldn't need access to p.pitcher_identity_id which means it should be able to use an index-only scan on the game_date index.
Alternatively, if you made a multicolumn index over (game_date, pitcher_identity_id), then it could use that index as an index-only scan even with the existing view definition.
