MISSION: Support and Promote all things Florida Gator Baseball 

The Gator Dugout Club is the official booster group for the University of Florida Baseball program. Our main objective is to encourage fan support for the Gator baseball team.

What Does The Gator Dugout Club Do?

The Gator Dugout Club is the official booster group for the University of Florida Baseball program. Our main objective is to encourage fan support for the Gator baseball team.

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.

Additionally, the Club holds a merchandise raffle at each meeting, raffling restaurant and merchandise gift cards as well as Gator merchandise. 

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 Gator Dugout Club Scholarship Endowment Fund for more than a decade. Some of the funding has come from membership dues and merchandise raffles, auctions and our annual golf tournament.

In 2020, despite a pandemic cutting the NCAA season short, Gator Dugout Club members, their family members and friends, and season ticket holders rallied to raise over $100,000 toward the building of a new, state-of-the art facility across campus from the old McKethan Stadium. This donation is recognized by the UAA with a title sponsorship of the National Championship trophy display at Florida Ballpark. 

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