Baseball team raises funds for an expensive season


Jupiter High’s varsity baseball team is selling coupon books for $20 to raise funds in preparation for the 2020 season.

Baseball is an expensive sport. The money raised from coupon books, in addition to money raised at the team’s annual golf tournament fundraiser on Oct. 19, goes towards the cost of field maintenance, uniforms, equipment, coaches, transportation, security and umpires.

“It is very expensive to pay for new baseballs because we go through 25 dozen game balls a year, and one dozen cost $70,” head coach Andy Mook said. 

This fundraiser also helps individual players pay for their equipment and travel expenses. 

“Since I have been playing for all four years at the school, it has cost a lot of money to pay for new bats, gloves, and other fees,” senior baseball player Devin Jeluso said. “The fundraising helps us get new things for the season so we can play with new equipment and so we can actually play because we would not be able to have the money to support all of our expenses.”

The coupon books offer discounts for 3 Natives, Duffy’s, Chili’s, Jersey Mikes, Bowlero and Tropical Smoothie.

Warrior baseball is looking to repeat their run at states this school year. They won the 9A State Championship in 2018.
