CONSTRUCTION, GOLF AND BASEBALL –
Pinciotti’s trunk trifecta.
As president of D.J. Pinciotti Construction
Company, Inc., a hard hat and fluorescent vest,
at minimum, are reserved a spot. The golf
clubs earn space based on a streaming enthusiasm for a game he’s loved since childhood.
And the baseball gear is a product of son Jon’s
year-round involvement in the sport.
“Make sure it all fits [is my trunk system],”
Pinciotti, 46, of Ivyland, Pa., said. “Fortunate-
ly, it’s a big enough vehicle where I can put
the seat down if I need to get some more
room. Sometimes I’ll go to pick up parts from
a local supply house, and they’re like, ‘You’re
putting this in here?’ My father’s comment
always was, ‘The dirt on that vehicle paid for
Pinciotti’s father Dan, Sr. started in the con-
struction industry as an operating engineer in
1957. It formally became D.J. Pinciotti Construction Company, Inc. in 1981 – a business that
specializes in site management for residential
and commercial projects.
“Growing up, I always worked summers
with my dad and the crews, learning what each
member did,” Dan, Jr. said. “We had a super-
intendent whom I would ride around with. He
would teach me what he knew and what to
look out for, basically showing me the ropes.”
During his childhood, Pinciotti also fol-
lowed his father’s golf footsteps, growing to
love the game while caddying at what is now
called Union League Golf Club at Torresdale.
He decided to pursue a career in the profession as a result. Pinciotti attended Lynn
University and competed on its golf team before transferring to Golf Academy of America
(Orlando), where he graduated in 1990.
However, tragedy struck the Pinciotti family
in 1991. His brother Keith, who primarily operated D.J. Pinciotti Construction Company, Inc. at
the time, was killed in a car accident. Pinciotti
swerved on the golf career path before taking a
full-time detour in 1995.
“I tried to make it work for myself playing
golf, but there was always that draw to come
back and be with the family,” he said.
On a typical summer day, Pinciotti arrives
at his office by 6: 30 a.m. and meets with the
company’s foremen to discuss logistics for the
jobs ahead. He’ll travel from job site to job site
throughout the Delaware Valley. Time-permit-ting, a driving range session, or a round of golf,
works its way onto the agenda. Sprinkle in the
baseball obligations, and the trunk is never
begging for dwellers.
“I drive Jon to camps, practices, lessons,
games, you name it. If it’s a Saturday, it’s an
all-day thing,” Pinciotti said.
Jon, 15, and siblings Alex, 21, D.J., 18 and
Dominic, 13, along with mom Tricia, share dad’s
interest in golf. Fortunately, the family vehicle
can accommodate a trip to the course.
“With four kids, you always need trunk
space,” Pinciotti said.

Sanderson’s trunk is complete with the
usual golf clubs, in addition to field hockey and
“And a chair to keep my back from going out
when I watch [games and practices],” Sanderson,
44, of Wyndmoor, Pa., said. “When you sit there
for six hours, it’s helpful to have back support.”
The field hockey portion comes courtesy of
daughter Lucy, a seventh grader at Springfield
Township Middle School. Lucy, 12, volunteered
to play goalie for her school team this past fall.
She enjoyed the experience so much so that
“MY FATHER’S COMMENT
ALWAYS WAS, ‘THE DIRT
