TO BECOME A HOST FAMILY:
For 15 years, AppleSox fans have graciously opened up their homes to some of the West Coast League's best baseball talents. This season, we want your family to be a part of the tradition, and experience the best summer of baseball on the West Coast!
AppleSox Host Families are the best families, because:
- Each family receives two premium Applesox season tickets (a $430 value) or four general admission season passes (a $460 value).
- Families with kids (especially budding baseball players) love having young, energetic, and inspirational players in the household.
- Seniors, and couples who are "empty-nesters" always enjoy the added company of our local baseball players.
- Without AppleSox host families, our season wouldn't be possible.
About Being a Host Family
We ask that our host families provide a free place for our athletes to rest and recover between games, over the 2 1/2 month season. During this time, our players are also known to play with your children/grandchildren, mow the lawn, walk the dog, and be a member of your family for the summer!
Generally, Players arrive around the first of June and leave around the 18th of August.
Players have games almost every night during the 2-1/2 months (and for half of those games, they are on the road).
People that are interested in hosting can contact the Applesox at 509 665 6900 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will arrange an in-home meeting with their host family coordinator, Tammy McCants, so all questions or concerns can be answered.
Many of the host families have been with the Applesox for years and they all tell great stories about following their players as they strive to make it to the big leagues. The Applesox have seen players posing with their host families for Christmas cards. They really can be inspiring experiences.
