pitch (something) to

1. To hurl, toss, or throw something to someone. I pitched the ball to him pretty slowly, but he still wasn't able to catch it. Don't pitch things to me from across the room!
2. To propose something to a particular person or a group. They let me pitch a my idea to the board of directors, but I don't know if they liked it. She's pitching a radical new kind of cybersecurity software to the government.
3. To target something, especially advertisements, at a particular demographic. It just sickens me how these companies shamelessly pitch ads to children at such a young age. It's still really weird to me how websites pitch advertisements to me for things I write about in emails and blog posts.
