The Kansas City T-Bones Host Family program allows families to become part of the T-Bones organization and gives the player a place to stay while they are here for the summer. Hosting a professional baseball player is a rewarding experience. Bringing a player into your home will allow for an up close and personal experience with a professional athlete. Players arrive at the beginning of May for Spring Training camp and unless released or traded, most will remain through the first week of September. Besides the experience, Host Families receive two season tickets for each player they host, as well as a few other “perks” throughout the season.
Host families are asked to provide the player(s) with a room with preferably a double bed or larger, a bathroom with a shower and access to a kitchen and laundry facilities. Host families are asked to provide some meals. The players really just need a comfortable place to call home while they are here. Because of the T-Bones being in an independent baseball league, the players salaries aren’t conducive with renting apartments, etc. and therefore need host families. We also prefer that host families live within 30 minutes or less from T-Bones Stadium.
When players are released or traded, it is not always possible to place a new player in the host family home. If that occurs, we ask that they remain in our host family program, continue to come out to the ballpark and utilize their tickets until the need arises to place another player in their home.
