The Gator Dugout Club

Official Booster Club for the University of Florida Baseball Team

 

 

Yearly Meetings

Our meetings during the season are held at the University Women's Club next to the Basketball Practice Facility across the street from the Track stadium and parking lot.


Meetings will begin two hours prior to first pitch on Saturdays. Get there early to buy your raffle tickets for merchandise and gift cards.


Also buy your raffle tickets for a The SEC Tournament Package which includes reimbursed lodging and tickets in Hoover, Alabama in May.


After the season we take three months off to savoy the wins which included the first Baseball National Championship in 2017.


Starting again in September there are monthly meetings on Monday nights at Sal's Place for dinner and an interesting speaker through December.


Starting each year in style is our Covered Dish Dinner with the team (players, coaches with family and staff). Usually there are two hundred folks attending.

 

 

Club Merchandise

The Gator Dugout Club has its own Club polo shirts and ball caps. Three shirts are available in orange, blue, and white with the Club. Ball caps are blue or white. Click here for Shirt and Cap Order form.

 

 

What is the Gator Dugout Club all about?

The Gator Dugout Club is the official booster group for the University of Florida Baseball program. As such our main objective is to encourage fan support for the Gator baseball team. One means of support is financial through our giving to a baseball scholarship.


Another form of support is by being present at home and select away games, at the SEC Baseball Tournament in Hoover, Alabama and in Omaha at the College World Series.


To help financially, the Club holds a merchandise raffle at each meeting, raffling restaurant and merchandise gift cards as well as Gator merchandise. Fifteen to twenty items are raffled every meeting except the Covered Dish Dinner.


Preseason the Club sponsors a Covered Dish Dinner where members can sit with players and coaches and talk baseball and eat great food.


Members get discounts at local businesses (see the sponsor list).


We have an annual trip to Jacksonville in March for the Gators vs. Noles game.


There is also the SEC Baseball Tournament Package where two membership get to attend the SEC Baseball Tournament on the Club. Winners are reimbursed for tickets to the Gator games and their hotel bill for as many nights as the Gators are in the tournament.


If you are a gator baseball fan, we encourage you to join us. Look at our meeting schedule on this site. You are welcome to come see what we are about.

Where does the money go?

The Gator Dugout Club realizes to support the Gator Baseball Program, it takes volunteers, effort and money. The Club has been supporting the Steve Georgiadis Scholarship Fund for more than a decade. Some of the funding comes from membership dues, some from the seven meeting raffles.


This past year, the Club has gathered more than $3000 of raffle items including Gator Baseball merchandise and gift cards from local businesses. From these raffles, we would like to collect at least $1000 in cash to go towards the scholarship.


The Club thanks those who give and encourages every member to participate.
