Coast Distributing donates to YMCA

Coast Distributing Co., Markstein Beverage Co., and the San Diego Padres recently announced the donation of $12,200 to the Armed Services YMCA.

The funds were raised throughout the 1991 San Diego baseball season. Baseball fans tested their pitching arms at the Budweiser "Fastest Pitcher in the West" game. A radar gun clocked the speed of participant pitches. Fans paid $1.00 to throw three pitches.

Over the past six years since the game's inception, nearly $80,000 have been raised for local charities.

A highlight of this year's game participation was the men's division champion, Jason Bender. An olympic javelin-trialist, Bender's pitch was clocked at 97 m.p.h.

Coast Distributing Co. and and Markstein Beverage Co. are the San Diego area Anheuser-Busch, Inc., distributors.
