The Pitch for Israel is a community wide softball tournament in support of Israeli families in need. The tournament has been around for 8 years and has been played in Toronto, London and Detroit, and it was held in Calgary this summer.
Proceeds will support a 2 acre park in the heart of Sderot that will serve one of Israel’s growing communities and the 2,000 families that reside there. This park will be built in honour of the 66 brave IDF soldiers who lost their lives this past summer in Operation Protective Edge.
