For Those of You Who Like Baseball...

The O's and Nats both suck.

So, come out today to Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda, Maryland and watch the playoffs in the Cal Ripken, Senior Collegiate Baseball League at 4 and 7:30.

This is incredible baseball right in our backyard and most people don't know about it. The league isn't quite the Cape, but Povich is better than any field up there and the talent is getting better and better. In this year's MLB draft they had 40 players taken, including two in the first round.

Today, the Bethesda Big Train (29-13) play the College Park Bombers (23-18) at 4:00. The Big Train are led by relief ace Matt Hiserman, who became the first pitcher in league history to finish with a 0.00 ERA in 33.2 innings. He also went 30.2 innings before walking a batter, also a record. They also have 1B Danny Stienstra, whose .391 batting average would have been the league's all-time record by a long-shot...if not for 1B Mike Celenza of the College Park Bombers, last year's batting champ who raised his to .395 this season to edge Stienstra.

The winners and losers will go on to play eachother at 7:30. The Big Train's second game will be at Povich win or lose though since it is their home field. They also ask all fans in attendance today to WEAR GREEN for a green-out at the field.

Seriously folks, if you haven't seen Povich, it's a $2 million gem of a field, and these players are incredible talents. It's also an awesome family atmosphere...adults are only $7, kids $3, and kids in a youth baseball or softball uniform get in free.

Directions to Povich are here: http://www.bigtrain.org/published/new_directions.html

Highly recommend checking it out.
