Host Families

Host A Player

Any player playing for the Flash that does not live within a reasonable commute will be placed with a host family. All our host families will be interviewed and informed of all requirements prior to being accepted as part of the Flash family. All host families will be required to provide a bedroom to their player along with access to bathroom facilities and washer/dryer for uniforms. Host families are not required to provide food for players.

All host families will be provided season tickets to all Flash home games.

Anyone interested in becoming part of a great experience and allowing these athletes a chance to develop their abilities on the field can contact us at hendersonflash@outlook.com or call one of the contacts listed to the left.

 

The Impact of Host Families

Mostly every collegiate summer baseball league has a group of host families that welcome an out-of-town player into their home for about two months during the season.Paducah’s Buddy and Ann Rushing make up one of those host families for the Paducah Chiefs housing Brandon Calia of Lexington.

“It’s kind of like living with grandma and grandpa honestly,” Brandon Calia said.

“He comes into our home, makes himself at home, and that’s what we wanted him to do,” Ann Rushing said.

“It’s been a blessing,” Brandon’s father Gerald Calia said alongside his wife Melissa. “The Rushing’s have been a great host family. They’ve taken him in as if he was one of their own.”
