Due to some changes in circumstances, the Chillicothe Mudcats summer baseball team is in need of a few additional “host families” for players and/or coaches for this summer’s team. The team plays mostly in June and July, but players and coaches will arrive late this month, around Memorial Day. The college players who comprise the team sponsored by Grand River Entertainment will come to Chillicothe from across the United States. Over the club’s 10 prior years of experience, it and the community have generated a reputation among the college baseball playing and coaching fraternity for being a first-class summer-league operation and environment, according to feedback the organization has received over the years.
“This is a fun and rewarding experience,” club spokesperson Jennifer Reeter related on behalf of the team’s housing committee.
Anyone willing to house one or more players this summer or wanting or needing more information on what is involved may call one of three Mudcats representatives — Reeter at 660-646-3156 or 660-247-8147, John?Barnes at 660-646-3156 or 660-247-1900, or team general manager Liz Fechtig at 660-646-2165 or 660-752-5279.
