Bethesda’s summer league collegiate baseball team will again showcase Montgomery County nonprofits this year, thanks to the support of the Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation.

The Big Train will honor two nonprofits at each of its 24 home games at Shirley Povich Field in Cabin John Regional Park this June and July.

Each nonprofit that signs up will get a table to set up a display and banner to promote its cause at the game. The featured nonprofits of the night will also get 100 complimentary tickets.

To sign up, email bruce[at]greaterwash[dot]org.

The Big Train will start its 16th season with an exhibition game at Shirley Povich Field on Monday, June 2. The team is made up of college players from throughout the country who stay with host families in the area.

It’s part of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League, a wood bat summer league of teams from around the region that’s one of the fastest rising in the country.
