Generous & Caring Individuals & Families willing to open their homes & hearts to members of the Wichita Wingnuts Baseball team!
The Wichita Wingnuts are currently searching for individuals & families in the greater Wichita, Kansas area willing to provide a comfortable home & family atmosphere for the 2014 baseball season.
The Wingnuts have players from all over the United States and around the world on the team. These players need a safe and comfortable place to stay during the 100 game season and the playoffs. That's where you come in.
The host family program is a vital part of our baseball program and community. We believe the quality of people in the greater Wichita area will set our host family program apart from the rest of the league.
The Wingnuts utilize the host program so that players can stay with a family and connect with the community on a deeper level. The host will get to connect with their player, learn about the day to day trials & tribulations and get an inside look at professional baseball that few get to experience. In addition you & your player will have the opportunity to make a new and lasting friendship.
Professional ballplayers are rising stars, falling stars, shooting stars and athletes with stars in their eyes. You, as a host family, will be a big part of their success in Wichita and in their career as a baseball player. The better the "home" environment, the better the player's performance.
Players are paid on a seasonal basis, and unlike affiliated players, earn very little for their hard work and dedication.
As a host family, it will be your responsibility to provide your player with a stable, clean, and healthy home environment. Also required is a private bedroom and access to a bathroom. We ask that access to a kitchen and laundry facility be given. Additionally, because the players are stretched financially to follow their dreams, host families with the ability, means, and thoughtfulness to provide meals to their players during home-stands and those hosts located within Wichita city limits will be given first priority.
All "Perks" are subject to rules and conditions to be set forth in the contract between the Host family and the Wichita Wingnuts at the time of the application process.
