Our players are NCAA-eligible college students who come from around the United States to play in the Cal Ripken League. With approximately 20 players coming from out of state each season, we need people in our community to help house Thunderbolts player for the summer.
If you love baseball and have room in your home, please consider hosting one of our college players. If you have children who love baseball, why not give them the unforgettable gift of bringing a real, live, college baseball player into your home? We have pitchers, catchers, infielders, and outfielders – so many from which to chose.
Host families often tell us that the player they host comes to feel like family. Host families receive a family pass to all Thunderbolts home games, which allows all family members to attend our games and cheer on their favorite player for free.
If you have space in your home in June and July (or even just one of those two months) for a Thunderbolts player to stay, please let us know. Providing housing for players from outside the D.C. area is important for the Thunderbolts, as it allows us to recruit nationally.
