Host Families are needed from the last week of May through the first week of August for the Albert Lea Lakers baseball team. This program is a vital part of the player’s success both on and off the field. Having players become part of a local family helps these young men stay grounded in an unfamiliar city, build life skills, and affords them the stability they need at “home” to concentrate on building their baseball skills.

Host families are asked to provide meals for their player and need to provide a room with access to a laundry room and kitchen. Families can host one or two players and will be paid $150 for each player housed. Each family will also receive a family pass to games this season.

To get an application to host a player or players please contact:

• Tom Jones: 507-402-3265

• Mark Calderon: 507-402-3709

• Michael Keeran: 641-231-1659
