Dating back to its days as a member of the New York-Penn League, Auburn has a long history of providing host families for players entering their first season as professionals.
The upcoming season includes 64 games, with 32 at home, and the collegiate-age players will spend “a considerable amount of time” at the ballpark or on the road. However, because players do not receive a salary and will be traveling in from out of town, host families are required.
As a host family, it would be required to provide each player their own bedroom. If hosting more than one player, it’s OK that they share a bedroom, but must be provided their own beds and have access to a bathroom, laundry, and refridgerator.
