Message from Big Train Founder & President Bruce Adams
Big Train fans:
This week, the good news arrived. After a lost season in 2020 and a year of hard work by our newly reconstituted Bethesda Community Base Ball Club, Montgomery County has approved our plan for the return of Big Train baseball at Shirley Povich Field.
Just four weeks from today -- Saturday June 5 at 7 p.m. – a Big Train player will throw a pitch for the first time since July 31, 2019 when we won the Ripken League championship. It’s been 635 days, but who’s counting?
And I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed as we try to run our league championship string to a fifth season. Our Manager Sal Colangelo tells me he has been able to recruit another very talented team.
Over the last three months, we have taken great care to craft a rigorous plan to protect the health and safety of our fans, players, coaches, staff, and volunteers at Povich Field this summer. Montgomery County is allowing up to 250 fans to attend our games.
I am writing to you – our most loyal fans – to ensure you are fully informed about how you can secure your tickets to games and how you can support our efforts to bring the fun back to Povich Field this summer.
As you can imagine, our priority this winter and spring has been to do the homework necessary to secure permission from the county to allow us to bring fans back to Povich Field. We are now in a sprint to secure the sponsors and sell the picnics and camps and tickets that make Big Train baseball possible. We have four weeks to do what typically takes five months. We are an entrepreneurial community nonprofit organization dependent on earned income as well as generous contributions from our supporters.
We need your support now. Here’s how you can help:
Thank you for your generous and continued support.
Now, let’s get ready to Play Ball!
Founder & President
