USF Alumnus Stephen Revetria attends conference in Rome, Italy | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"The SF Giants’ slide into the NLDS playoffs may well’ve been influenced by some divine intervention: As the boys of orange-and-black battled into October, S.F. Giants Enterprises SVP Stephen Revetria just happened to roaming around the Vatican.

Revetria was one of the only American sports execs invited by Pope Francis to Rome where the pontiff held his inaugural global conference on faith and sport titled, “Sport at the Service of Humanity.”

But Revetria’s presence wasn’t all that surprising: He’s a Jesuit-educated, University of San Francisco alum; a supporter of many local charities and a team player for the Giants, who were honored for the Junior Giants Program with the MLB Commissioner Award for Philanthropic Excellence, and by ESPN with Sports Humanitarian of the Year award for the team’s youth programs."
