HILLSBORO, Ore. – Have you ever dreamed of being a professional baseball player? Well…here’s your chance to, at least, live with one.
The Hillsboro Hops are searching for families with a spare room or basement to house players during the summer season.
Team President and General Manager K.L. Wombacher tells KXL that host families aren’t paid. But, he says the experience is incredibly rewarding, “Players call them their summer Mom or summer Dad. The relationships do get pretty meaningful.”
If interested, contact the team. A committee will review your situation and make a determination on if it’s a good fit for both the families and the players.
Here is the official press release from the team:
