Each year, 28 young men move to Beckley for the summer to play for the West Virginia Miners. From May through August these young aspiring ballplayers continue to hone their baseball skills playing 60+ games in 10 weeks. Players come from all over the United States to participate in the Prospect League and to be a part of the West Virginia Miner Family.
Over the 6 year history of the West Virginia Miners, the Host Family program has been a vital part of our team’s success both on and off the field. Having the players become a part of a local family helps these young men have some sense of normalcy in a strange new city. Many of the players become more than a guest, they actually become part of the family.
