Rockford baseball team looking for host-families and there are some great incentives that go along with it.

Rockford's wood bat baseball team, Rockford Rivets, is looking for families to open their homes to young players from late May through mid-August. Who knows, you could be welcoming a future Chicago Cubs M.V.P.!

As a host family you'll provide room for the player or staffer, as well as food and good 'ole hospitality. You'll get some perks for being so generous, too.

  • Season tickets for Rockford Rivets' home games.
  • 10% discount in the ball park.
  • Free access to all Northwoods League webcasts.
  • Guaranteed giveaways.
  • A warm, fuzzy feeling.

You and your family will also be invited to special host family events and, more importantly, positive impact on the future of a young man.

The Rockford Rivets are seeking host families who will welcome players into their homes for the season (late May – mid-August).

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 a player with a home away from home, ultimately making the Rivets experience special and rewarding for all involved.
