Why be a host?
Being a host family can be an extremely rewarding experience for everyone. The ability to create a new relationship with a player who potentially may end up in the Major Leagues as well as provide a positive influence for younger children.
We encourage all Host Families to treat their player as if he were another member of the family. Many of these players will be playing far away from their homes and their families, some for the first time in their lives. Having a supportive adopted family who treats their player as if they were their own son can make the long summer away from family easier, more comfortable and allow them to concentrate on their development on the field.
