Quincy Gems Looking for Host Families

Believe it or not, the 2014 edition of the Quincy Gems Baseball team will be taking the field on Wednesday, May 28 when they travel to Hannibal to meet the Hannibal Cavemen. It will also be the season and home opener for the Cavemen. The Gems first home game will be on Friday, May 30 when they meet Danville at Q.U. Stadium. That will also be “Y101 Night at the Ballpark”. ¬†

Have you wondered where the 28 players stay while they are in Quincy? Well, they actually stay with local host families for the two months they are here. Currently, the Gems are looking for host families for the season ahead. Hosting a Quincy Gems player or players is a rewarding experience.

Gems players are excellent role models for young children and teenagers and are great company for the entire household. The friendships made through host families are friendships that last well beyond the season’s end. Host families receive two box seats season tickets at no charge ($360 value) and ¬†also get recognized during the Host Family Night during the season in exchange for providing living accommodations and some meals during the season.

If interested in becoming a host family contact Terry Martin at 430-7422. Imagine hosting a player who goes on to become a major league star. Wouldn’t it be nice to say “I knew him when” or better yet, “I still know him”.
