Rivets seek host families

How’d you like to have a future major-league player live with you?

The Rockford Rivets need a few more homes to fill out their roster of host families. Their inaugural season starts on May 31 and ends August 14.  

The host family program is vital to the success of every team in the Northwoods League both on and off the field. Host families house, feed, and provide player with a home away from home, ultimately making the Rivets experience special and rewarding for all involved.  

Host families will receive complimentary Rivets season tickets, a 10-percent discount on Rivets merchandise, a free pass to the NWL webcasts, and of course, the chance to meet and host a player who could potentially end up in the big leagues. One out of every six players in last year’s major-league draft had NWL experience.

Families interested in hosting a player(s) for the 2016 season should contact the Rivets office at 815-240-4159 or email info@rockfordnwl.com.  

Rockford is a member of the finest developmental league for elite college baseball players, the Northwoods League, which will play its 23rd season of summer collegiate baseball in 2016.
