Beyond the Field: Seminole Boosters Supporting FSU Baseball

FSU baseball is a powerhouse program, consistently ranked nationally and boasting numerous conference titles. From legendary coaches to unforgettable championships, the Florida State University baseball team has an impressive history of success and a promising future ahead. Behind the scenes, a dedicated group lays the groundwork for these achievements: the Seminole Boosters. The Boosters provide support that directly impacts the lives of student-athletes and fuels the program for continued greatness.

The Power of Support: FSU Scholarships and Beyond

At the core of the Seminole Boosters’ mission lies financial support for athletic programs, including FSU scholarships for student-athletes. Through the scholarship endowment fund, the Boosters fund more than $11.5 million annually in scholarships for FSU student-athletes in all 18 athletic programs. This year, FSU baseball players have 11.7 full scholarships. This critical funding removes the financial burden of education, allowing players to focus on academics and athletics.

FSU scholarships for student-athletes are more than just financial support. Through hard work and dedication, athletic scholarships are earned by student-athletes who dream of playing college sports. These scholarships provide the means to achieve their goals and become a part of the FSU legacy.

FSU Baseball’s Student-Athlete Perspective: A Blessing and An Opportunity

“Seminole Boosters has helped us become the program that we are, and we wouldn’t be here without them, without their sacrifices and their support of our program” says James Tibbs, a outfielder on the FSU baseball team. The Boosters have uplifted the FSU Baseball team with opportunities for success by providing financial support to the program’s student-athletes and facilities. This support allows all of FSU’s athletic teams, including baseball players, the ability to focus on and excel at their athletic and academic endeavors.

"To be able to come out here every day and compete without the financial burden I think that’s a huge blessing for each and every one of us.” FSU Baseball student-athlete James Tibbs
