PENNY PITCH’S RICH HISTORY
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.
