Become a Host Family
The most important service provided by the Boise Hawks Baseball Booster Club, Inc., is the coordination of the Boise Hawks Host Family program whereby players are “adopted” for the season during their stay in Boise at no cost to the player.
The Hawks players are required to provide their own housing, meals and transportation – all on a minimum salary for first year players. Host Families help ease this burden by becoming a player’s home away from home during his stay in Boise. The players are in Boise for 38 games of a 76 game season. The players arrive in Boise mid-June and leave in September.
What a wonderful way to enjoy a game of baseball when you can cheer for “your player”. The game of baseball takes on a whole other meaning when you personally know the players and especially have one of them living with your family for the summer. It is a great opportunity to watch a young man grow in his career and watch him move up in the organization after his short time with the Hawks. Hopefully, he will make it to the “Big Leagues” and you can look back and say “That fine young man lived with our family in the early days of his career.” It is also the beginning of a long-term friendship between the player and his Host Family.
