Paints seeking host families
– The Chillicothe Paints need host families
for the 2012 season. Host families play a
crucial role in summer collegiate baseball,
as most of the players on the Paints’ roster
are not from southern Ohio.
As NCAA student-athletes, Paints’ players are not
allowed to accept pay for playing in the
Prospect League. As a result, the Paints
rely on local families to house their
Host families are only obligated to provide a spare
bedroom and access to a bathroom and laundry
facilities. Each player is responsible for
their own food and transportation, although
the host family may include the player in
family meals and activities.
Hosting a Paints’ player can be a rewarding experience
for the host family. Paints’ players are
excellent role models for young children and
teenagers, and are great company for the
entire household. Often, players and host
families build a friendship that lasts well
beyond the end of the season.
A family that hosts a Paints’ player is provided two
(2) COMPLIMENTARY season tickets for all
Paints home games and will be recognized on
the field during the Paints’ final home
If you are interested in hosting a Chillicothe Paints’
player, please contact the Paints at
phone, (740) 773-TEAM (8326) and ask for
JOHN WEND for additional information.
