I had no clue there was even such a thing as the Athens Pirates..
Host a College Baseball Player This Summer!
The Athens Pirates College Summer Baseball Club is actively seeking Volunteer Host Families for the 2010 Summer Season. There are approximately 20 out-of-state players seeking a family to live with for the summer (June, July 2010). These players are current college baseball players and major league prospects.
Special thanks go out to our prior Host Families for their support of our program. We’ll be glad to put you in touch with any of our host families who’ll attest to this wonderful opportunity to get to know a pre-professional baseball player.
Each player has his own transportation and a summer job.
Let your Little Leaguer, Junior Leaguer, Senior Leaguer or High School player spend the summer mentored by an All-Star College Baseball player. Each player comes to the Pirates highly recommended by his college
coach, high school coach, summer baseball coaches, and an area Major League Baseball Scout.
Take advantage of this unusual sports opportunity to help a player with professional potential improve his game, and at the same time help your child build on his baseball and people skills.
If you are interested in helping, please call Beth Giddens (706)
372-0015 or Shane Daniel (706) 255-7871 or email
The players will be arriving in Athens the week of May 24th.
