The Batavia Muckdogs are again in need of local families to host the boys of summer.
The team is looking for residents (preferably close to Dwyer Stadium on Bank Street) to provide lodging for the year’s Muckdogs.
From the team:
Host Families play a crucial role in helping young players feel comfortable in a new environment. Many who have hosted players in the past have had incredibly wonderful experiences. However, with players coming and going throughout the season, we have constant needs as far as housing.
The 2014 season runs from June 13 until Sept. 1 and players typically range from 18-23 years of age. The team will arrive in Batavia the week of Monday, June 9.
The 2014 home opener is June 14. The Major League Baseball first-year player draft is June 5 which will make up a big portion of the Muckdogs’ roster.
Contact Travis Sick at 343-5454 or firstname.lastname@example.org or housing coordinator Shirley Fanara at 356-3411.
