Honoring and Supporting Big Train Community Heroes

The Bethesda Community Base Ball Club has always been about more than baseball. Our founding mission was to improve opportunities for our youth. Our community building work has never been more important than it is today. 

Echoing the Orioles’ Birdland Community Heroes program and with the support of the Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation, we were planning to honor five Big Train Community Heroes this summer. We will wait until 2021 to honor them on the field, but all of us can honor them now with contributions to their organizations as they serve on the frontlines of our fight against Covid-19.

As part of our “Safe at Home Tuesdays" bigtrain.tv programming during the summer of 2020, Big Train founder and president Bruce Adams interviewed each of the five Big Train Community Heroes. Links to each interview are provided below. Here’s a link to an overview of the Big Train Community Heroes program.

The Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation has agreed to contribute $250 to each of these organizations this summer, and we urge you to support our Big Train Community Heroes listed below with links for learning about and making contributions to their organizations:

All five of these wonderful leaders and their organizations deserve our support every year.
