Commodores honor host families before victory over Chatham

FALMOUTH, Mass.– The Falmouth Commodores celebrated their annual Host Family Appreciation Night with a heartfelt ceremony before their game against the Chatham Anglers on Saturday.

The ceremony began at 5:40 p.m., with players, coaches and families gathering on the field. Each host family was recognized, receiving a rose and warm applause from the crowd. The Commodores’ players, who come to the Cape from all over the country, look to these families for support throughout the season. A summer of baseball on the Cape couldn’t happen without the host families, and their support is crucial to the team’s achievements both on and off the field.

“Living away from home is sometimes tough," catcher Scott Mudler (Oklahoma) said. "The support and care I’ve received from my host family so far have made all the difference.”

“Welcoming a baseball player into our home for the season is like extending our family,” said host dad and Commodores president Bob Curtis.

Following the ceremony, the Commodores went on to defeat the Chatham Anglers with a final score of 4-3. The victory was a fitting end to a night filled with appreciation and excitement.
