Spokane Indians Baseball Season: Host families should be aware that the season is short, running from early June until early September. Host families are required for Indians players beginning around June 10th, with players departing around September 10th.
Spokane Indians Players: Some Indians players are drafted from high schools and colleges across the United States, while others have been signed from foreign countries, but they all share one thing in common -- baseball. This requires discipline and dedication, and you will find that this translates into players that are admirable young men. They are polite, respectful and grateful. The Indians play approximately 76 games over three months, half of those on the road, which means they are away for significant stretches of time. While in town, they are expected to attend pratice and workouts.
Host Family Expectations: The principle role of the host family will be to provide accommodations. Players spend the vast majority of their time time at the ballpark and require a "home away from home" to be able to relax and rest throughout the grueling 76-game season. Host families are expected to provide some meals, but players will special diets will be asked to acquire their own food. Assistance with transportation is helpful, although players tend to make their own arrangements with teammates.
