Crosscutters Looking for Host Families

By Williamsport Crosscutters | May 22, 2013 5:04 AM ET

The Williamsport Crosscutters are again seeking local families to assist in housing players during the 2013 baseball season.

Anyone can help provide lodging for this year's Cutters 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", said Crosscutters Vice-President of Marketing Gabe Sinicropi. "I also know that those who have hosted players in the past have had incredibly wonderful experiences. With players coming and going throughout the season, we have constant needs as far as housing." 

The 2013 season runs from June 17 until September 4 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 Jenny Lorson at (570) 326-3389 or

Opening Night 2013, presented by Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania & KISS 102-7 takes place on Tuesday, June 18 and will feature a schedule magnet giveaway for the first 2,500 in attendance, a chance for fans to trade in old Williamsport Outlaws gear for a new Cutters t-shirt and other opening night festivities. 

Season tickets, bonus books, group packages and single game tickets are currently available and can be purchased online at or by calling the Cutters Hotline at (570) 326-3389.
