Become A Host Family
Do you LOVE Baseball? Or maybe you just like meeting new people! Are you interested in helping to shape a young man’s career, possibly a professional baseball career? If so, you may be a perfect candidate to host a Danville Dans player this summer. The Dans are looking for host parents/families in the Danville area for the baseball season. This summer, approximately 32 young men will move to Danville to play for the Dans.
From late-May through Mid-August, these aspiring “professional” ballplayers have the opportunity to hone their baseball skills. Players come from all over the United States to play for the Dans.
The Host Family Program has been a vital part of the Dan’s success, both on and off the field. Many of the players become more than just a house guest; they become part of the family!
Here’s The Pitch!
- Provide a home and meals for player during the season
- Your family receives free season tickets
- Your family will be invited to attend special events
- The player will be a positive role model for your children
- You will have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the future of a young man
- You might be getting to know a future Major League Baseball star
- You have the potential for the creation of a long-term friendship

DANS LOOKING TO GIVE BACK TO COMMUNITY
Danville and Vermilion County fans enjoy coming to Danville Stadium and watching the Dans play baseball every summer. Once again the Dans will be giving groups the opportunity to earn money for their organization.
The DansShare program helps support area nonprofits, school groups and sports teams by having their organization work in the concession stand or sell 50-50 raffle tickets. The concession groups receive a donation for their work, as well as accepting tips from fans. Our fans also have the opportunity during the game to purchase 50-50 raffle tickets from one of the community groups, with the selling group receiving a portion of the proceeds.
Through the DansShare program more than $12,500 was given to area groups during the 2022 season!
Groups interested in selling 50-50 tickets please email email@example.com. Those interested in working the concession stand please contact concession manager LuAnn Grimm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The schedule will go "live" on Friday, April 21st, for groups to claim dates.
Just as Dans fans enjoy coming to the ballpark every summer, the Dans enjoy giving back to our community!
