Diamond Club

ETBU Baseball Diamond Club

Diamond Club Purpose

The primary role of the Diamond Club is to help the baseball program by providing financial assistance for things not funded through any other source. These things may include field maintenance, meals, travel, equipment and special projects not covered in our annual budget. We are striving to become one of the most respected programs in the American Southwest Conference as well as the state of Texas and beyond. Your willingness to provide assistance is a great step forward in achieving our goals.

ETBU Baseball Needs Your Support

The only source of revenue for the athletic department are budget dollars derived from tuition, very limited gate receipts and contributions from friends like you through organizations like the Diamond Club. The cost to run a first class baseball program is high and we must depend more and more on outside contributions to achieve the level needed to compete at a championship level.  Contributions to the Diamond Club are used to meet these increasing costs.

Message from the Head Baseball Coach

Dear ETBU Baseball Supporters:

I am extremely excited to be taking over as Head Baseball Coach of the Tigers and to continue to develop relationships through our Diamond Club.  I look forward to the challenge of leading the Tigers into a tough and hopefully exciting season in 2015.  We have experienced some success here in the past two years and look forward to our program continuing into the right direction.  As always most of that credit should be attributed to the players, a dedicated assistant coaching staff, a supportive administration, caring parents, along with many former alumni and players.

I invite you to become a partner so together we can continue to build a quality program and shape the lives of the many fine young men who strive for excellence both in the classroom and on the field.

See you at the Yard,

Jared Hood
Head Baseball Coach
