Fuego seeking host families

Copyright © 2021 Albuquerque Journal

It’s almost baseball season, as the Santa Fe Fuego are set to open their 2021 Pecos League season against the Roswell Invaders on June 2. But, first, the home team needs a place to stay.

The Fuego is seeking families willing to host one or more players at their home through the end of the season in early August.

“A vital part of a successful season is to have host families provide housing for the players, giving them support and a family atmosphere for the summer,” the Fuego say on their website. “Many past Host Families have developed friendships with the players they have welcomed into their homes and have enjoyed watching their players progress in their careers. This is a great opportunity to receive an inside look at the trials and tribulations of a professional baseball player.”

The Fuego ask that host families provide each player with their own room for the season, and access to a kitchen, and washer and drier, if possible.

Host families get two season passes for Fuego home games and a discount on merchandise.

If interested, a meet-and-greet event will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on May 26 at Fort Marcy Ballfield. There’s also a form at
