Bees Looking for Host Families


The New Britain Bees are currently seeking community members that are interested in becoming host families for a Bees player during the 2018 baseball season. Hosting a player has many benefits to a family. It is a valuable way to provide a player with a home while keeping them involved in the community and also gives you the opportunity to be involved with the Bees on a personal level. For many families, hosting a player has made a special impact on their lives as well as their “adopted” family member.

For becoming a host family, the Bees will give you the opportunity to attend every home game during the 2018 regular season. You will also be invited to many special events throughout the year, including a picnic event at the end of the season where your family will be able to take live batting practice on the field. For making one of our players feel at home, the Bees will make sure you feel like part of our family as well.

Here are some of the other benefits you will receive when you become a New Britain Bees host family:

-10 percent discount at the Bees Merchandise Shop, B.Hive & Co.

-Four (4) complimentary tickets to every regular-season home game

-One (1) Luxury Suite night, which includes 15 tickets (any Monday-Thursday game, based on availability)

-One (1) parking pass, valid for all regular-season home games and events

-Four (4) complimentary tickets to all regular-season Bees Special Events

-Four (4) complimentary suite tickets to Opening Day (Friday, May 4th, 6:35 pm)

-Up to four (4) members of each family will be invited to throw out the on-field ceremonial first pitch at a regular-season home game

-Preferred choice of playoff tickets prior to public sale (all parking passes valid for playoff games)
