Grafton Little League (GLL) - Grafton, WI: Welcome

Chinooks Host Family Program
Are you interested in helping out a potential Major League Baseball player?  The Lakeshore Chinooks are looking for Host Families for the upcoming 2015 summer season.  The players are collegiate players from across the country.  Host Families provide a room for the player, occasional meals and potentially transportation.  In turn you get to know a potential big league baseball player, complimentary tickets to all Chinook home games, 10% off team merchandise, make a positive impact on the future of a young man and much more.
 
For more information go to the Chinooks web site.  You may apply online to become a Chinook Host Family.  Additional information is available HERE.
 
Additional questions can be directed to Nancy and Mark Koehler.  N
ot only are Nancy and Mark the Chinook Host Family Coordinators, they also have hosted players for the past three seasons (one was signed by the Miami Marlins).

Sponsors

We are very fortunate to have a core group of loyal sponsors that have been with us for several years; we also have new sponsors join us each year.  It is through the generosity of these sponsors that we are able to continue to offer our little league program.  Please review our current list of sponsors and consider using them for your needs and services when possible.
