Sikeston needs to be hospita'bull'

Friday, May 15, 2009

SIKESTON -- On May 24, a full roster of Sikeston Bulls will make their way into town for the summer. Bulls general manager Fred Johnson hopes that in the next few weeks the players will have somewhere to lay their head at night following their KIT League ballgames.

"In the past, Sikeston folks have opened their doors to them," said Johnson of the need for host families. "It's not because we're not trying. All they have to do for a host family is to give the players a place to sleep, take a shower and possibly do their clothes. They don't even have to do that, they can take their clothes to the laundromat. They just need a place to sleep and get some rest."
