Martha's Vineyard News | Sharks Need Host Families – The Vineyard Gazette – Martha's Vineyard News

By Moira and Reid Silva The Martha’s Vineyard Sharks collegiate baseball teams needs host families more than ever. In fact, their 2022 season is in jeopardy over a lack of housing. We have hosted a half dozen players over the years. My most significant Sharks experience may have happened when my youngest son’s Little League buddy was in a serious accident. “Our” Sharks made this child encouraging videos, put together a Sharks goodie bag and attended his welcome home parade.
On rainy days last year, “our” Sharks played board games with my kids. One sunny day, they jumped in tandem from the Jaws bridge—even taking the time to counsel a nervous child through his first jump.
For my youngest child’s birthday, our players escorted him to the pitcher’s mound where he threw out the first pitch. One player even dedicated his home run to my boy.
All together, we enjoyed countless backyard Whiffle ball games and conversations around the table where they taught us volumes about baseball.
Hosting has been a positive experience and one we will repeat again this summer. All these guys need is a bed. My family can attest that host families and our entire community stand to gain so much in return.
Moira and Reid Silva live in West Tisbury.
