A summer collegiate baseball team, the Bethesda Big Train delight fans with the sounds of summer: the crack of the bat, the smack of a fastball hitting the catcher’s mitt, and the buzz of a cell phone politely vibrating. Consisting of players from colleges such as George Mason University and UNC-Wilmington, the team also aspires to be a role model for the region’s younger generation, showing them that they can play baseball at a high level while still putting college, their studies, and their right to wear sweatpants to class first. As of 2012, the club has won the Cal Ripken League championship three seasons in a row, giving locals and fans plenty to cheer about while enjoying family fun out under the summer’s warm evening sky.
The Bethesda Big Train baseball team came to fruition through the passion and charitable work of the Bethesda Community Baseball Club. Upon seeing that the area’s softball and baseball fields were in disarray, this group quickly took to the task of improving them for the community’s youth. After raising the money to fix the parks, the organization erected Shirley Povich Field to give the Bethesda Big Train a place to call home beyond the two-story tree house filled with endless antics they all share.
