2022 Penny Pitch Recap

What a fantastic day! We are so grateful for your support. 

You helped raise more than $100,000 to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors experiencing homelessness and poverty! Your generosity makes it possible to provide essential services and pathways to stability for San Franciscans in need, helping to create a community in which all persons flourish.


Congratulations to our returning champions, the Pitchin Sisters, winning two years in a row, and taking home the coveted Ed Moose memorial trophy adorned with a giant martini glass and penny olives!


Coming in a close second place, was Richey's Busher League, this year's team from Original Joes, that honored their late co-worker Adam Richey. This team took first place in the "last chance pitch-in" and earned their way back into the penny pitch semi-finals where they played tough until the last penny was tossed.


Lastly, congrats to Non-cents from PlayStudios for winning the Best Team Spirit, the Queen Bees, for Best Team Costume, and the Pitchin Sisters for Best Team Name.




Started in 1977 by legendary restaurateur Ed Moose as a friendly wager between two watering holes, Penny Pitch has become a cherished San Francisco tradition supporting St. Anthony’s mission to feed, heal, shelter, clothe, and lift the spirits of people experiencing homelessness and poverty in San Francisco.   


Like bocce ball with coins, Penny Pitch is a friendly contest that brings together local business owners, corporate partners, government officials, Franciscan Friars, athletes, and San Francisco personalities of all kinds. Much like the NCAA’s March Madness, Penny Pitch features teams of six competing in a single elimination bracket-style tournament. Back by popular demand, “Last Chance Pitch-In,” where a losing team can earn a spot back in before the finals. The Penny Pitch Champion will earn themselves the coveted Ed Moose Trophy and bragging rights for the year!  


Legendary “Pitchers” from the past include Metallica, SF Giants Tim Lincecum and Andres Torres, SF 49ers Guy McIntyre, Keena Turner and more.  



We invite you to partner with us as a sponsor and enjoy the benefits that come with it! Join those who have already decided to be a part of this long-standing San Francisco tradition to support San Franciscans in need and make our city a better place for everyone.
