Opening day for the Paducah Chiefs Baseball Club is in approximately eight weeks. This college wood bat team plays at Brooks Stadium in Paducah in June and July, and the players rely on the generosity of local families to host them for the season.
General Manager Greg McKeel said, “Host families provide the much-needed stability and support for these young players who travel to Paducah to play for the Chiefs. Even though this is for only two months, I have seen host families and players develop relationships that continue for years. They are truly extended family members.”
At this time, several players need host families for the 2023 season which begins Thursday, June 1 at home against Fulton.
“Being a host family for one of these amazing players is one of the best experiences that I have had,” added McKeel.
