<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en">
  <head>
  <title>test</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
	<style type= "text/css">	
	
	.pitchbox{	 
	 border: 1px solid #0066ff;
	width: 160px;
	height: 720px;
 padding-left: 5px; 
 padding-right: 5px;  
 padding-top: 2px;
  padding-bottom: 3px;
  background-color: rgb(227,227,227);
  text-align: center;

Ooops that  should be  <div id="pitchbox" class="pitchbox">

Try and do your design using the class and not the id.  You simply set your css to a class by using a . instead of # (for id)

Because '.pitchbox' is a class and you put id="pitchbox" in the div.  They need to both be the same kind.  Both class or both id.
