Looking for 2020 Host Family's
The Sliders are always looking for Host Families to "adopt" players during the season. Host Families play a crucial role in summer collegiate baseball, as most of the players on the Sliders roster are not from Illinois.
As NCAA student-athletes, Sliders players are not allowed to accept pay for playing in the Prospect League. As a result, they rely on local families to house them.
Hosting a Sliders player can be a rewarding experience for the host family. Sliders players are excellent role models for young children and teenagers, and are great company for the entire household. Often, players and host families have a friendship that lasts well beyond the end of the season.
A family that hosts a Sliders player is provided FREE season tickets for all Sliders home games and will be recognized on field during our Host Family Night.
If you are interested in hosting a Sliders player, please contact the Sliders (217) 679-3511 or Host Coordinator Carrie McClure, (217) 416-5354 for additional information.
