The Pitch is a free alternative weekly newspaper distributed in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, including Lawrence and Topeka, Kansas. While known for its investigative stories of the local government, it also covers local sports stories, restaurants, events, and concerts. It was started in July 1980 as the "Penny Pitch" which was a monthly handout at Penny Lane Record Shop in the Westport area of Kansas City.

Village Voice Media bought The Pitch in 1999. It sold the paper in 2011 to SouthComm Communications.

The Pitch is a member of the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.
