Paducah, KY – The Paducah Chiefs Baseball Club have announced that they will return to Brooks Stadium for the 2018 season. The team is part of the Ohio Valley League, a collegiate wooden bat association. A large percentage of the 27-player roster is comprised of players originally from the Paducah area. The players who don’t call the city home are housed by host families for the duration of their 42-game season. The Paducah Chiefs are currently seeking host families for those players from outside of Paducah.
According to team manager, Greg McKeel, “Being a host for the Paducah Chiefs is a great and rewarding experience. The players are all college students that are here for the summer season. They are on their college baseball team and very dedicated to improving their game. The players will arrive the day after Memorial Day and be here until the last week in July – approximately 8 weeks. They would need a place to sleep, shower, and some space in the frig for some food. As a host you will receive free season tickets for you and your family. These young men will become part of your extended family.”
The season will kick off on May 31st with the Chiefs home opener against the Madisonville Miners. The regular season July 18th followed by two playoff rounds and a championship round. In addition to becoming a host family, sponsorships and season tickets are currently available for the 2018 season.
