Host Families

Would you like to host the next Ryan Howard, Matt Carpenter or Chase Utley? 

The Batavia Muckdogs are again seeking local families to assist in housing players during the 2017 baseball season.

Anyone can help provide lodging for this year's Muckdogs by either providing space or renting a room, apartment, or home. While many host families come back year after year, the team is always looking to add to their list of availabilities for the players.   

Host Families play a crucial role in helping young players feel comfortable in a new environment. Many who have hosted players in the past have had incredibly wonderful experiences. However, with players coming and going throughout the season, we have constant needs as far as housing 

The 2017 season runs from June 19 until September 7 and players typically range from 18-23 years of age.

Anyone in need of more information on becoming a Host Family is invited to contact Travis Sick at (585) 343-5454 or You can also call our housing coordinator Shirley Fanara directly at (585)356-3411.
