Silver Spring Thunderbolts - Adopt a baseball player!

Do you love baseball? Would you like to adopt a college baseball player for the summer?

All you have to do is contact the Silver Spring Thunderbolts, a community baseball team that plays at Blair High School in the wooden bat, Cal Ripken Sr. league. The summer season runs from June through July, and great college players come from all over the country come to play here. The out-of -state players stay with local host families, and they become a fun addition to your family. Some former players, like Jonathan Papelbon, the closer for the Red Sox, have gone on to the major leagues. Imagine telling your friends that you hosted a big leaguer before he made it big!

Host families receive a family pass, good for free admission to all of the Thunderbolt home games, so that you can always go root for your player. If you are interested in hosting a player, and you would like more information, please call Gina Lowe at 301-890-4282, or email her at:
