  • Come out and enjoy four specialty beer nights with 7 Locks Brewing on June 11June 18July 2, and July 22!
This is just a sampling of what we have in store, but just know that whatever night you come out to Povich, you're guaranteed to see great baseball and have a ton of fun.
The Big Train is also excited to bring back our Picnics! The Davis Family Picnic Pavilion at Povich Field is the perfect place for a youth sports team to celebrate the end of a great season before a Big Train game. Or treat your friends to a ballgame at your birthday party. Or celebrate a family reunion, a company outing, a community celebration, or basically anything. You tell us the day, and we do all the work!
Dinner is at 5:30 p.m. provided by Gregorio’s Trattoria and Catalyst Hot Dogs. For just $22, each person receives a ticket for that night's game, dinner, and a drink. It's the perfect evening! For any youth sports team celebrating the end of their season, enjoy the added perk of the players getting to run out onto the field with their Big Train counterparts after having their name announced over the PA system. It's an amazing experience for kids and parents alike.
For more information and to reserve your place today, please visit our Picnics Page or email Bruce Adams at
The full team at the Big Train couldn't be more excited about welcoming everyone back to Povich Field for a full season of fun entertainment and great baseball! Come out and join us for our 23rd Summer of Fun!
