A short love letter. To Sport

The fastest men. Ever.
Baseball. Unpacked.
Exeter Chiefs. Chopped.
Darts. Arrowed in on.
Panini stickers. Unstuck.
Sporting train stations. Given a platform.
And croquet. All the hoop-la.

“Pitch is such an excellent title, and I think it's a great addition to the sports press. What I like about it is that it covers all sport, which is great, there was a gap in the market for that, for an all-round title. Excellent design too, the cover is beautiful. ”
