SteepleCats Seeking Host Families

Print Story | Email Story

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams SteepleCats are seeking host families to house players for their upcoming 2018 baseball season.

The host family commitment is to house a SteepleCats player from June 2 through the beginning of August. Players should have their own room and families provide their meals. Players will arrange their own transportation.  

In exchange, host families receive a "Golden Ticket" that allows them to attend any game throughout the league – and never expires. They also receive a discount on SteepleCats merchandise and are able to build a relationship which can last a lifetime.

For more information on hosting a player, email Pat Decker. volunteer@steeplecats.org.  

The SteepleCats play in the prestigious New England Collegiate Baseball League, which has sent more than 100 players to the Major Leagues over the past 20 years. This year over 100 NECBL players were selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Home games are played at the historic Joe Wolfe Field on Route 8.

The appropriation would be level-funded from this year at $17,769,074.
 
Superintendent Barbara Malkas cautioned that this is still a preliminary budget and that "there are still a lot of moving parts."
 
"This year it feels a little bit more predictable mainly because the governor did issue a budget on Jan. 27," she told the School Committee's finance subcommittee last week. "So the timeline that by which we're going to know about funding will be better than it was last year."
