Host Families are a longstanding and honored part of professional baseball. Virtually all teams in independent and Minor-League affiliated teams below Class AA have host families for the majority of their players.
These programs are a vital part of a player’s success both on and off the field. Having players become part of a local family helps these young men stay grounded in an unfamiliar city and affords them the stability they need at “home” to concentrate on building their baseball skills in an incredibly competitive profession.
