Become a Host Family
HOST FAMILIES ARE NOT BEING SOUGHT AT THIS TIME.
Host families provide a safe and comfortable family environment-the players will provide a positive influence in our community and in your home.
"I would encourage interested people to give it a try. The players are responsible, respectful, and truly appreciative of having a 'home' to return to at the end of a long day!"
- The Rick Family-
What does a host family need to provide?
We ask that each host family live within a reasonable distance of the ballpark and be able to provide a private bedroom for the player. An understanding of the schedule and lifestyle of the players is a necessity. Due to a hectic game schedule, players are often leaving the house early and arriving back late. Meals are not required, though it is always appreciated when they are provided. Transportation is also left to the decision of the respective family.
How long does the program last?
The players will be reporting to Spring Training in early May and will need housing through the duration of the season, which we always hope will include playoffs. Playoffs could extend up to two weeks after the final regular season game. The final regular season game in on September 5th.
What do host families get in return?
The host family program gives local families the firsthand opportunity to experience the thrills, joys, and the lifestyle of a professional baseball player. In many cases, it results in a memorable summer ending in lifelong friendships. Each family will also receive the equivalent of four (4) season tickets along with season ticket holder privileges and invitations and on-field recognition at a Fielders game.
