The Bethesda Big Train college summer baseball team is looking for host families to house its players this summer.
The Big Train, which plays its games at Shirley Povich Field in Cabin John Regional Park, is a team of college players from around the country who come to sharpen their skills and play in front of scouts in the wood-bat Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League.
Big Train players, who work at the team’s youth camp during the day and typically play at night, need housing from late May through late July or early August:
If you love to watch baseball, have kids who play baseball, or get a kick out of lazy summer nights at the ballpark, you can host a Bethesda Big Train player this summer, and get ready for the summer of your life! Let your family scream themselves silly when your very own player comes up to bat or pitches a game. With your own player, a recruit from a local or long-distance college, staying with you, your family will have a personal interest in the team that you’ve never felt before.
