Gulls Seek Host Families For Athletes

May 22, 2013 - New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) - Newport Gulls News Release

NEWPORT, RI - The Newport Gulls are looking for new host families to take into their homes the Major League Stars of Tomorrow for the 2013 summer season. The Newport Gulls host family program is the foundation on which the Newport Gulls family is built. Our Host Families have opened their homes to our players who have come from all over the country for the summer in hopes of chasing their dreams of becoming Major League Baseball players. We are so thankful to have such wonderful families that give our players and coaches the same care and attention that they give their own children. The relationships that are forged between our players and their hosts are memorable, and will last a lifetime.

On behalf of the Newport Gulls organization, our players and their respective families, we thank all of the area residents who have opened their homes and brought the word "family" to the Newport Gulls Baseball Club.

In addition to the rewards of forming a life-long relationship with a player, the Newport Gulls thank their host families with a very special free Host Family Package. The package includes: A season pass for each family member, team photo in season, a Gulls T-shirt for each family member, an invitation to selected Newport Gulls special events, free registration to Newport Gulls summer camp and host family and team parent weekend festivities, and on-field recognition at the Gulls final home game with their player for Host Family Appreciation Night, Thursday, Aug. 1.

If your family is interested in becoming a host family for the 2013 summer season, email General Manager Chuck Paiva at gm@newportgulls.com for more information or call 401-849-4982.
