Each summer, the Bucks bring approximately 40 college aged men to the Cedar Valley. These players come from  universities from all over the United States.

Host families house, feed, and provide the player with support throughout the summer. Each player becomes a member of their host family during their time in the area. Hosting a player can be a rewarding experience.

During the existence of the Waterloo Bucks, host families have been one of the most important parts of our team’s success both on and off the field. Having the players become a part of a local family helps these young men have some sense of normalcy in a strange new city.

Here’s the Pitch:

  • Provide a home and bed for player(s) during the Bucks season
  • Your family receives free season tickets and tickets to the 2019 Northwoods League All-Star Game
  • Your family will be invited to attend special events
  • The player will be a positive role model for your children
  • You will have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the future of a young man
  • You might be getting to know a future Major League Baseball star
  • You have the potential for the creation of a long-term friendship

Families or individuals interested in becoming host families may apply with the Bucks by calling 319.232.0500.
