This is a paid piece from the Sioux Falls Sunfish.

Simplified: Sioux Falls Sunfish players are ready to play their first season. But first, they need a place to live.

Tell me more

  • The Sioux Falls Sunfish is a new summer collegiate baseball team and part of the Expedition League, which includes a dozen teams from the Dakotas, Montana, Idaho, Nebraska, Wyoming and Canada.
  • About 20 host families are still needed to provide players a place to sleep, laundry access and food in a clean, safe environment.

Why it matters

  • Without host families, the Sunfish players won't have a place to call home, and may be stuck in temporary living situations like hotel rooms, said General Manager Nick Moen.
"We're in a situation where host families are very much needed," Moen said.

What does being a host family entail?

Host families are asked to provide the following:

  • A clean, safe home, including a bedroom, bed, bathroom, laundry access and parking if needed).
  • Food
  • Clear household rules and expectations
  • A willingness to communicate with the player and team staff if issues arise.
