2023 Base Ball and Holiday Auction

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 our service to the community and ensure a strong financial foundation to support Big Train baseball.

Join us on Sunday, December 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the fabulous new KID Museum located directly above the Bethesda METRO station for our annual Big Train Base Ball & Holiday Auction. Our great friend, Hall of Famer Tim Kurkjian from ESPN, will share his reflections on the 2023 MLB season and World Series. We will enjoy the company of Big Train fans and some fine food, showcase our auction items, and present our 2023 Randy School Big Train Outstanding Service Awards.

This year's event will be special as 2024 will be the 25th season of Big Train baseball, and we are working hard to make sure it is the very best ever. Funds we raise this Fall will allow us to make improvements to Shirley Povich Field, continue our robust community service activities, and organize a spectacular schedule of 2024 game night entertainment you won't want to miss.

This year, we will have two online auctions to help you do your holiday shopping. The first will open on Tuesday, November 14, at 5 p.m. and close Tuesday, November 21, at 9 p.m. The second will open Tuesday, November 28, at 5 p.m. and close on Monday, December 4, at 9 p.m. Many of the items in the second auction will be on display at the December 3 event.
