The Danbury Westerners’ begin their 27th season on June 7th, and once again we are focused on bringing high-quality summer collegiate baseball to the region.
Funded in part by Major League Baseball, the Danbury Westerners play 42 games in two months, during which several of tomorrow’s stars from throughout the country will showcase their talents to our fans in the region. In 2023 over 50 former Westerners were playing professionally in the Majors, the minor leagues or independent league baseball teams.
The Westerners need host families to house our ballplayers this summer. Our Host Family program is the foundation of our team’s success, both on and off the field. Living with a host family makes the ballplayer’s stay in this region a “home away from home” and improves the quality of their experience.
You will likely see that the ballplayer becomes so much more than a guest- he becomes a part of your family. As a host family for the past sixteen years, I can attest that the experience makes for a very fun summer and is most rewarding. My family and I cherish the relationships that we’ve built over the years through hosting.
