Do you love baseball?
Are you interested in having an impact on a young man’s life, possibly his professional career?
Are you interested in building a relationship that may last a lifetime?
If you answered yes to these questions, please consider being an Eau Claire Express Host Family.
This year approximately 35 young men from all over the country will move to the Chippewa Valley for the summer to play for the Eau Claire Express. From late May through late August, these young aspiring ballplayers hone their skills by playing 72 games in a minor league setting.
Over the 30-year history of the Northwoods League, the host family program has been a vital part of every team’s success both on and off the field. Having the players become part of a local family helps these young men have some sense of normalcy in a strange new city.
Many of the players become more than a guest. They actually become part of the family!
