Become a Bees Host Family in 2019!

The New Britain Bees are seeking members of the Central Connecticut community that are interested in becoming host families for Bees players for the upcoming 2019 baseball season.
Hosting a Bee is the perfect opportunity for fans to get involved with the team. The experience provides families with the chance to get to know a professional athlete and develop an everlasting bond. In addition, each host family will receive exclusive benefits not available to the general public.
Becoming a Bees Host Family is easy! The only requirements for host families to provide are:
  • A private bedroom for the player
  • Use of a bathroom and kitchen
Any other amenities that you are willing and able to offer will be greatly appreciated by your player and the team.  If you are interested in becoming a host family or if you are a landlord with available properties, please call 860-826-BEES (2337) or email Bret DeRosa at
