The ‘Shoes are excited to announce that Lindsey Mundstock has been named Host Family Coordinator from the Springfield Lucky Horseshoes. She will coordinate with team management and host families to assign players to local homes, fill in gaps when players are released, and mediate any issues that arise.

Lindsey, originally from Sesser, IL, has lived in the Springfield area since 2010 while raising a family that includes her husband, Springfield Fire Captain Ben Mundstock, and three boys, Miles, Hutch and Tripp. She currently is a Kindergarten teacher at Sherman Elementary School, where she has been for the past 10 years.

The Mundstock’s have been host families for the past two seasons.

“Being a host family is such a rewarding opportunity. Your family creates a relationship with these players and their families that lasts a lifetime. They become your family; they are our boys,” the newest Host Family Coordinator remarked.

The host family program is one of the most important initiatives for the ‘Shoes as it helps take off the burden from Lucky Horseshoes players traveling from all over the country to play in Springfield. During the 2022 season, 11 host families located throughout Springfield and the surrounding areas hosted over 20 Lucky Horseshoes players looking to hone their skills over the summer.

The ‘Shoes are currently looking for host families for the 2023 season. Interested families are encouraged to reach out to Lindsey for more information at [email protected]
