Dock Spiders Seeking Host Families for 2022

 

FOND DU LAC, WI – The Fond du Lac Dock Spiders are seeking host families to welcome players into their homes for the 2022 season. Host families agree to house, feed, and provide support to the collegiate players who call the Fond du Lac community home during their Northwoods League season.

“Our host families are truly our biggest supporters,” said Dock Spiders General Manager Jim Misudek. “We couldn’t make Fond du Lac a top destination in the Northwoods League without the attention and care that our area families provide to our players. The relationships formed from this program last a lifetime and create unique bonds – especially as our players progress in their baseball careers.”

Benefits of the program for host families include:

  • Complimentary tickets for your immediate family
  • Host family picnic
  • 15% discount in the team store
  • Guaranteed all giveaway items distributed during the season
  • Rewarding, lifelong relationships

Families interested in the program should have a separate bedroom for the player and be able to host from late-May through mid-August. If you are interested in becoming a host family, please visit this LINK and complete the form at the bottom of the page.
