WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee AppleSox players need a place to live this summer.
The team announced Tuesday that it finds itself in an “unusual situation being short of host homes.”
“It’s more than just affordable housing for the players, it’s a way for our team to connect with our community,” a news release from the AppleSox said. “Over those 13 years, dozens of meaningful relationships have been formed, with many host families still hearing from their players years after they left the Sox.”
The team is seeking homes for three players and one broadcaster. The players will be living in Wenatchee from June 1 to Aug. 20, while the radio announcer will arrive May 1.
The release indicated that families of all shapes and sizes have played host in the past:
“We have families with young children, who like having a role model for their children,” the release said. “We have ‘empty nesters’, who appreciate a hand with the household chores. They all share great stories of their time with these aspiring college athletes.”
There is also one key perk to being a host family: free season tickets. If you are interested in being a host, call the AppleSox office at 665-6900.
