The Bethesda Big Train summer collegiate baseball team is bringing back the Big Train Celebrity Softball Classic to raise money for its mission of improving baseball fields in the D.C. area.
The game, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, will match up local athletes including Washington Redskins Ryan Kerrigan and Chris Cooley against local media personalities who cover them. The athletes won last year’s inaugural game, 3-2.
The game will take place six weeks before the start of the Big Train’s season at Shirley Povich Field (10600 Westlake Dr.) in Cabin John Regional Park. The event also includes the Big Train FanFest at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets to the game are $10 and proceeds to the game will benefit the team’s foundation. Since its founding in 1998, the Big Train have donated more than $600,000 to building better baseball fields in Montgomery County and D.C. Last year, the Big Train merged with BCC Baseball.
