RiverHawks seek host families

FROM PRESS RELEASE - RiverHawks seek host families

Loves Park, Ill. - The RiverHawks are seeking families interested in housing a player for the 2011 season. This unique experience will allow a family to get to know a player beyond the field and allow them the insight of the player's everyday life.

Players may be assigned housing as early as the first week of May. Pending the length of the postseason, players may be in homes as late as mid-September.

Host families can enjoy many benefits in exchange for providing room and board: up to four season tickets (depending on household size), a VIP parking pass, a discount card for purchases in the team store, and monthly picnics with the whole team, all exclusive to host families.

Many host families have developed relationships with players that have lasted long beyond the players' days in Rockford.

Families interested in the program should contact assistant general manager for baseball operations Todd Fulk at (815) 885-2255.

Opening Night for the RiverHawks' 10th season is 7:05 p.m. Thursday, May 26, when they host Schaumburg. Advertising and ticket information is available by calling (815) 885-2255. Fans can also visit
