Quotes from current and past host families:

“Our players have continued to be part of our family for over 25 years and have enriched our lives.”

“Our Big 33 experience has opened up unfamiliar doors which has led us to relationships with our players to the equal of “Family.”

“The best kept secret in Hershey!  Our family has gained a “son” through this wonderful experience.”

“Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to be a Big 26 host family.  We hosted two players from Pennsylvania and it was rather amazing how attached we became to “our boys” after only being with them for 4 days.”  We can only hope our own two boys grow up to be as nice and kind as our “baseball boys.”

“Our family thoroughly enjoyed our Big 26 host family experience. We could not have asked for a more polite, well-mannered, and respectful player. He made our weekend enjoyable, and as a mother, I will always remember how he made my 4 year old son feel during his stay.”
