Host Family


The Tri-City Chili Peppers are gearing up for what is sure to be a memorable inaugural season. Some of the best college players from around the country will throw on a Chili Pepper uniform for the first time and get the opportunity to play in the highly competitive Coastal Plain League. One of the most unique experiences about Chili Pepper baseball is that our players and many of our interns will live within the Tri-City community during the season. Hosting a Chili Pepper player or intern will have a lasting impact on you and your family.  The bond that is made during the summer will continue long after the season is over.  Families often stay in touch with those that they have hosted; celebrating the successes throughout their careers.  In 2019 alone, 92 CPL host families saw their hosted players get drafted into the First-Year Player MLB Draft!

As a host family, you are entrusted to provide essential comfort for our players and interns by both the Chili Pepper organization and the individual’s family. These folks are young adults and deserve a place in the house where they can go to rest, relax and have some time alone. We expect and require all players and interns to be respectful of their host family and the rules of the house. Each family should be considerate of their player or intern during our grueling schedule, too.

Aside from a lifetime of memories, Chili Pepper hosts will receive great perks including tickets to every home game, access to private events and on-field recognition at one or more games at Shepherd Stadium. If you are interested in making the commitment to host one or more players or interns during our summer season, please contact Brent Ellenburg or call 804-499-3104 today.
