MONTCLAIR, NJ - The NJ Jackals are looking for host families in the Montclair area for the minor league baseball players.

The New Jersey Jackals have announced that they are seeking out local area fans and families to host a New Jersey Jackal for the 2019 season.

According to the release, the Host a Jackal program is a way to get to know the players and to go above and beyond supporting this local professional baseball team. Officials stated that many of the players don't make a large salary and finding a 3-4 month lease is very difficult.

What does hosting a Jackal entail? A player will need his own room (unless you host two in which case they can share) with ideally his own bathroom and access to a laundry room and kitchen. Host families should be able to provide arrangements for players from May 5-September 15. Since the players will be provided dinner at the ballpark after each home game, the host family is not required to cook for them.

To say thank you for participating in the Host a Jackal program, officials will give each host family a pair of Hall of Fame season tickets. These special tickets feature loads of exciting perks that are listed below: : Admission to all exhibition and regular season games : Your choice of seats : discount at our team store : Invitations to exclusive player meet & greets : Preferred parking : Hall of Fame party : Personalized seat nameplate : A Special Gift : Text to order food service
