Do you love baseball? Over the 12 year history of Baseball in Edinburg, the Host Family program has been a vital part of the team’s success both on and off the field. Having players become a part of a local family helps these young men have a sense of normalcy and family atmosphere, in a new city.
Many of the players become more than a guest; they actually become part of the family. Every year approximately 22 young men move to Edinburg for the summer to play baseball. The warmth they receive from a Host Family is priceless as they try to advance their career.
Being a host family presents a unique opportunity to be part of the baseball season unlike any other, by providing a summer home for a player. Host Family’s are required to provide a room. From June through mid-August these professional baseball players continue their careers playing 80 regular season games, with 48 home games. Players come from all over the United States, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Mexico to represent the City of Edinburg.
Host families receive 4 Box Seat Season Tickets and a VIP parking pass, in return for building a relationship that can last a lifetime. If you are interested in becoming a Host Family or need more information contact Doug Leary at 956-380-4446.
