Support Another Summer of Fun at Povich Field: Contribute Now to the Annual We Are Big Train Campaign

Bethesda Big Train baseball at Shirley Povich Field has been providing affordable family fun since 1999. We have been able to do this because of the extraordinary generosity of our Big Train fans. From 1999 to 2011, our Bethesda Community Base Ball Club (BCBBC) built Shirley Povich Field, started the Big Train, and donated $600,000 to improve youth fields. Since retaking stewardship of Big Train in June of 2020, BCBBC has continued our tradition of serving our community. Our annual We Are Big Train campaign provides us with the resources to support Big Train and continue our community service initiatives. Please make a one-time contribution or sign up to make automatic monthly donations. All contributions are tax deductible.
  • We Are Big Train: We Honor Our Heroes: In 2022, come visit the brand new “Shirley & Walter” sculpture honoring two legends of Washington sports history.
  • We Are Big Train: We Win Championships: In 2021, the Big Train won its fifth consecutive and ninth overall Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League championship.
  • We Are Big Train: We Serve Our Community: In 2021, at each game we honored 25 Community Heroes serving on the frontlines of our covid response.
  • We Are Big Train: We Provide Affordable Family Fun: The Washington Post calls Big Train baseball “the ultimate small-town fantasy.”
  • We Are Big Train: We Inspire and Teach Our Youth: Our kids get to be coached by outstanding college players at our camp during the day and then get to watch them play at night.

We Are Big Train Campaign Letter from Bruce Adams, Founder & President, Bethesda Community Base Ball Club
