The Bethesda Big Train college summer baseball team has announced schedules for its annual series of camps.
The popular sessions include instruction from Big Train manager Sal Colangelo, the Big Train coaches, players and appearances from Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles players. Last year, former National closer Chad Cordero was a coach. Pitcher Ross Detwiler and outfielder Roger Bernadina made appearances.
The six camps for boys and girls ages 5-16 range from $160 to $295 per session.
The Big Train is a wooden bat summer league team for college players in the offseason. More than 100 former players have been drafted into Major League Baseball.
The group’s Shirley Povich Field (10600 Westlake Dr.) in Cabin John Regional Park hosts games, clinics and other events throughout the summer.
