WANTED: EVENT SUPPORTERS AND SPONSORS!
Since 1999, our Big Train Base Ball & Holiday Auction has been an important opportunity to bring the Big Train Family together in the offseason, celebrate our victories and service to the community, and ensure a strong financial foundation to support Big Train baseball.
On Saturday, November 13 at 4 p.m., we will hold an in-person event at the Davis Family Picnic Pavilion at Shirley Povich Field. Sculptor Toby Mendez, who turned the Heroes of Birdland into bronze at Camden Yards, will be there to talk about his newest work – "Shirley & Walter." This fabulous sculpture of journalist Shirley Povich interviewing Walter Johnson will be unveiled just one week before.
As a precaution in the age of covid, attendance at the Saturday, November 13 event will be a ticketed event limited to 100 people. Masks will be worn except when actively eating or drinking. Tickets will be available to sponsors contributing $75 or more. Those attending the November 13 Big Train event will be among the very first to have an opportunity to be photographed with the new sculpture and meet the artist who created it.
On Sunday, December 5 from 7 to 8 p.m., we will hold a virtual event open to all through bigtrain.tv featuring ESPN's Tim Kurkjian presenting his annual assessment of the World Series and the MLB Season. Plus, Bethesda's own Eve Rosenbaum, the Director of Baseball Development for the Baltimore Orioles, will join us.
Both sessions will include online auction and awards for our most outstanding players in 2021 and for our volunteers and supporters who have helped us build the Big Train organization. You do not need to
attend the events to participate in the auctions. This is your chance to do your holiday
shopping without having to worry about the global supply chain.
