Brantford Red Sox Seek Host Families

The Brantford Red Sox are seeking host families for the 2022 Intercounty Baseball League season.  The Brantford Red Sox host college and international players during the IBL season, which runs from mid-May until September.  Visiting players in the league are billeted with local families for the time they are here playing.

Host families offer a place to live and provide a positive environment for visiting ball players. Billeting provides an opportunity for both the player and family to experience a summer together, create friendships, and provide insight into the life of a ballplayer and a connection to the team. You'll find that visiting players become part of the family!

Host families receive

  • $500 to cover expenses for the season, plus help with household staples for the visiting players
  • A pair of tickets to every Brantford Red Sox home game
  • On-field recognition prior to a Red Sox home game with the opportunity to throw out the first pitch
  • Seats for each family member to attend the team’s year end dinner

What our players need:

  • Their own room (unless you are willing to host more than one player as roommates)
  • Their own bathroom (if possible)
  • Access to a kitchen and laundry facilities

f you are interested in hosting a player, or for more information please contact us via the form on our Host Families page.
