(Wenatchee, WA) For 13 years, all the athletes that play for the Wenatchee AppleSox each summer stay in local homes. It’s more than just affordable housing for the players, it’s a way for our team to connect with our community. 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.
This year, we are in the unusual situation of being short of host homes. We still need to find housing for three players and one radio broadcast announcer. The players are in Wenatchee from June 1st through August 20th. The radio announcer arrives May 1st.
Host families are a diverse group! We have families with young children, who like having a role model for their children. 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. And host families receive free season tickets!
