THEN YOU MAY BE A PERFECT ROCHESTER HONKERS HOST PARENT/FAMILY!
Every year approximately 30 young men move to Rochester for the summer to play for the Honkers. From late-May through mid-August, these young, aspiring ballplayers continue to hone their baseball skills playing 72 games in 76 days. Players come from all over the United States to participate in the Northwoods League and be part of the Rochester Honkers.
Over the 29-year history of the Rochester Honkers and the Northwoods League, the Host Family Program has been a vital part of the team’s success both on and off the field. Having the players become part of a local family helps them have a sense of normalcy in a strange, new city. Many of the players become more than a guest, they actually become part of the family.
