Letter to the Editor: Host families needed for Galion Graders

At the heart of every successful summer collegiate or minor league team is a network of local host families.

These volunteers will house Galion Graders baseball players in June and July this summer.

The players are scholarship athletes who have been recruited with the expectation that they will be role models for Galion area youth, while they are guests in our community and in your home.

Host families will become our first fans. In appreciation for your commitment to Graders baseball, each host family will be complimentary guests at all Graders’ fundraising events and receive season passes to all 2017 home games, along with a complimentary Graders hat.

Host families will also be listed in game programs. This experience is a rewarding for both the families and players and will help to make the overall summer a fantastic experience.

Providing players with a comfortable place to live makes their time in Galion one to remember, with memories that last a lifetime and contribute to their improvement as a collegiate athlete.

If you are interested in being a host family, please Contact general manager Mike O’Leary at 419-571-8753 or manager Taylore Baker at 330-904-5086.
