Crosscutters Looking for Host Families & Rooms to Rent for Players
The Williamsport Crosscutters are seeking local families willing to rent a room, apartment or home to Williamsport Crosscutters players during the 2016 baseball season.
While many Host Families come back year after year, the team is always looking to add to their list of availabilities for the players.
“Host Families play a crucial role in helping young players feel comfortable in a new environment”, said Crosscutters Vice-President of Marketing Gabe Sinicropi. “I also know that those who have rented to players in the past have had incredibly wonderful experiences and still have contact with the players many years after hosting them. With players coming and going throughout the season, we have constant needs as far as housing.”
The 2016 season runs from June 17 until September 5. Because of the players schedule they typically spend about 40 nights in their Host Family home. Players range from 18 – 23 years of age.
Anyone with interest or in need of more information on becoming a Host Family is invited to attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, May 11 at 7:30pm at BB&T Ballpark, 1700 W. Fourth St., Williamsport. The meeting is for informational purposes only and attendance does not obligate anyone to participate as a Host Family.
