Host Families

Every summer, local families generously provide “homes away from home” for our players. The hosting experience and housing arrangement proves beneficial and rewarding for both the hospitable families and the players, with many long-lasting relationships formed.

The Backbone of the Mainers

Without the support of the Host Family Network, Sanford Mainers Baseball would not be possible. The Sanford Mainers Board of Directors and coaches would like to acknowledge the following for their support, commitment and dedication to our players and organization!


Four Happy Campers

Chica notes, “It is lots of fun, and they are great guys. Plus, we enjoy having the house full again!”

Friends Forever
