Raiders Baseball


Raider baseball has had a long and victorious history at Seminole State, earning multiple trips to the state tournament and making an appearance at the NJCAA World Series in 2003. Seminole State baseball players are also recognized each year for their contributions to the team, earning All-Conference, All-State and All-American honors.

Raider home games are played at Jack Pantelias Field on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.

Seminole State is a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I and the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Mid-Florida Conference (MFC).

Scholarships for student-athletes, including tuition, books and — in some cases — housing, are available.
