What is a Host Family?
This summertime wooden bat league attracts some of the most talented college baseball players from across the nation. This season, we will need homes for approximately 30 players. According to NCAA rules, college baseball players cannot be paid for living expenses and other costs. It requires summer leagues such as the CPL to use Host Families to house thier players. Becoming a host family for our players is a critical and very important role in the success and in the lives of these athletes.
Who are Host Families?
Host families consist of retired individuals, parents with young children up to teenagers and baseball fans of any age. These young men are passionate about baseball and inspire those around them. These guys become part of your family for many years to come.
Be available to host a player from May 22nd through August 17th
Provide a clean, safe bedroom and bathroom
Provide access to laundry equipment. Players do their own laundry, but welcome any help you give them
Welcome the players much like any visiting guest in your home
Host families do not need to provide meals or transportation!
In addition to the rewards of forming a life-long relationship with your player, the Martinsville Mustangs would like to thank you with a very special free Host Family Package for the supporters of this program.
