Ripken Collegiate Baseball Players Collect 9,499 Pounds for Manna Food Center

Gaithersburg Giants Win Challenge for First Time as League Sets Record

On Saturday June 30, nearly one hundred college baseball players who have come from across the country to play summer baseball in Montgomery County collected 9,499 pounds of food at twelve Giant Food stores across Montgomery County for the Manna Food Center. The Gaithersburg Giants upset the perennial champion Rockville Express to win the Ninth Annual Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League's Feed the Hungry Challenge by collecting an individual team record 3,205 pounds of food. Players from the Bethesda Big Train, Rockville Express, and Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts also collected food on Saturday. Despite wilting heat, the league total was the highest in the nine years of the challenge as three of the four teams recorded dramatic increases over previous years. In the nine years of the competition, the college players have collected 53,171 pounds of food — nearly 27 tons of food for Montgomery County's neighbors in need. Thanks to the Manna Food Center, Giant Food, and Text Design for supporting this community service program of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League.

Jackie DeCarlo, Manna Executive Director, said "Once again the Cal Ripken League teams came together for the local community in an impressive effort. The Manna team thanks all who made the collection of nearly five tons of food possible. It is especially valuable to get this food now to restock our shelves for the summer.” Ripken League Co-Founder Bruce Adams, who initiated the Feed the Hungry Challenge in 2010, said: “Seeing these college ballplayers who have come here from all across the country pitch in to serve our Montgomery County neighbors in need — especially in this incredible heat — reminds us of the good there is in the world when we all work together.”
