HOST FAMILIES NEEDED





WITHOUT THEM COLLEGIATE SUMMER BASEBALL IN ALEXANDRIA WOULD ALMOST CEASE TO EXIST

Each summer, all over the United States, countless numbers of collegiate baseball players aspire to follow their dream of someday playing the game professionally.

Through relationships built by the various summer teams with college coaches around the country a "recruiting" process begins in the preceding fall to build rosters. This effort is put forth to offer players the opportunity to hone their skills and possibly impress a professional scout.

Without host families opening their homes to these young men and offering them a place to stay for two months, summer collegiate baseball would almost cease to exist.

This summer approximately 30 young men from all over the United States will descend upon our area for the summer to play baseball. From early June to early August they will play 42 games in 60 days.

A host family is only asked to provide a warm bed and access to a washer and dryer.

If you would like to volunteer as a host parent/family please contact Hilary Garner at 202 216-8304 or email Hilary at hgarner@ralaw.com
