HiToms Looking for More Host Families
High Point/Thomasville, NC – Do you have a spare bedroom taking up space? Do you want to help support local baseball in your community? If your answer is yes to these two queries, we’d like your help. The High Point-Thomasville HiToms are looking for more host families as we prepare to defend our 2020 CPL West Division championship this summer.
Without host families, the lives of Coastal Plain League players and organizations would be much harder. When teams around baseball bring in players from out of the region, they need a place to stay. That’s where a host family comes into play. They are the backbone of the HiToms organization, helping us stay as a leader on the field and in our community by housing our players for the three-month season.
Each year we honor our host families with complementary tickets to games and an end-of-the-year ceremony at Finch Field. Host families assist with the connection of a player to the local community, with some relationships lasting for years beyond the summer season.
“I’ve made lifelong connections with my three host families while working in summer collegiate baseball,” says Shaemus Kreider, the broadcaster of the HiToms. “Baseball players are hardworking, exceptional individuals and you will not regret your time spent with the future leaders of this country.”
If you’re interested in hosting a player, email Greg Suire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
