According to a news release, The Texarkana Twins have signed two players from the Blue Grass state, Tyler Marshall and Troy Squires, from the University of Kentucky.

The new franchise is part of the Texas Collegiate League. In addition to gearing up for the season on the diamond the Texarkana Twins are making preparations off the field as well.

The Texarkana Twins are still looking for families within the community to host the players who will be representing the Twins from colleges from all over the United States. This provides the opportunity to get to know Texarkana Twins players on a personal level while providing a home away from home. Additional benefits to becoming a host family include: reserved season tickets for your immediate family in an exclusive area just for host families, free kids zone passes for children, a special pre season meet and greet, and on field recognition at a select Texarkana Twins home game.

Anyone interested in hosting a Texarkana Twins player for the upcoming season or needing additional information can contact the team.
