Host Families

Interested in becoming a host family for a Lake Erie Crushers player? Opening your home to a professional baseball player, as well as to the daily grind and lifestyle of an elite athlete, is an experience that few people have the opportunity to enjoy.
The Frontier League is often the last effort of a hard-working, highly motivated player will make in attaining his ultimate goal: playing in the Major Leagues.

These players bring their talents and skills to the Frontier League despite making meager wages, which makes the need for host families extremely important. Becoming a host family truly allows a household to join the Lake Erie Crushers family.

The recognition and perks one receives as compensation for becoming a host family is worth more than money. The memories and relationships host families make with their "host sons" are invaluable and will last a lifetime.

Host Families Receive the Following:

  • 2 ticket vouchers per game for as long as the family hosts a player. Families can use their vouchers as needed throughout the season.
  • One parking pass per family
  • In-game recognition of host families at home games
  • A team-sponsored preseason event for all host families
  • Team-sponsored in-season event with the host family and their player
  • On-field recognition ceremony at the end of the season for the host family
  • Discount coupons for the Fan Attic
