Bethesda Big Train's Holiday Auction To Feature Local National


Bethesda Big Train's annual Bethesda Baseball Holiday Auction will feature a Washington National with local ties. Steve Lombardozzi, the Howard County native who played many positions for the N.L. East Division champions last season, will be on hand when the Big Train holds the fundraiser on Sunday, Dec. 16 at the DoubleTree Hotel (8120 Wisconsin Ave.). The Big Train are a summer baseball team for collegiate players who often live with area host families while playing games in and around the region as part of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League. The team is part of the nonprofit Bethesda Community Base Ball Club, created in 1998 to improve conditions of baseball fields throughout the area. The team, named after former Bethesda resident and all-time pitching great Walter Johnson, plays at Shirley Povich Field in Cabin John Regional Park. Tickets for the event start at $50 and can be purchased here. For more information, visit the Big Train's website. Flickr photo by Keith Allison
