We’re stoked to announce that SavvyCard came out on top last night in a startup pitch contest in front of the management of the Tampa Bay Rays. Our investor pitch, honed over many months by our CEO David Etheredge, earned us a different kind of pitch – the honor of the making the ceremonial opening toss at last night’s game between the Rays and the Baltimore Orioles.
The only problem? We have two pitchers. David was ready to take the mound, but so was Joe Hamilton, our COO. In the end, David revealed on Twitter that it came down to passion . . .

Hopefully we’ll have some pictures of Joe on the mound before too long.
