On Saturday July 12, nearly 80 college baseball players from across the country collected 3,940 pounds of food -- nearly two tons -- for the Manna Food Center. The Bethesda Big Train won the Fifth Annual Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League's Feed the Hungry Challenge by collecting 1,198 pounds of food.

The Rockville Express collected the most at a single Giant Food Store with 999 pounds.

Players from the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts and the Gaithersburg Giants also contributed to the nearly two tons of food collected. In the five years of the competition, the college players have collected 21,622 pounds of food -- more than ten tons of food for Montgomery County's neighbors in need.

Rockville won the competition in 2010, 2011, and 2013. Silver Spring won in 2012.

Thanks to Manna Food Center, Giant Food, the Gazette, and Text Design for supporting this community service program of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League.
