The Blacksox will book player hotel rooms. However, once we book hotel rooms, we will notify the parents and let them know the cost. All hotels are prepaid before the team departs to go out of town. We will try to block off rooms for parents when we can but the parent(s) will be 100% responsible for handling the finances with all their hotels.

Can a player stay with their parents while on the road? 2018-01-25T17:43:47+00:00
