The Tucson Saguaros baseball team recently began recruiting host families for their players for the 2017 season, which starts in May and run through August.
“Without host families, the Saguaros cannot survive in Tucson," Ken Weir, Tucson Saguaros host family coordinator, said.
Twenty-four players, all between 21 and 25 years of age and all making minimum wage, will need a home for the summer. Only one or two players will stay at a host family’s house at a time. They can share bedrooms and bathrooms, but also hope to have a washer, dryer and kitchen appliances available.
“It’s a good opportunity to develop relationships with very good young men who have great goals and are great role models for everyone,” Weir said.
If interested, the team asks you fill out a form available at the Tucson Saguaros website, then contact Ken Weir at (575) 491-3216 or email@example.com. The Tucson Saguaros give discounted tickets to host families at $1.50 per ticket.
