The next time San Juan Hills High School baseball fans want to know how their Stallions are faring, the results will be as clear as day, thanks to a $25,000 donation from Ladera Ranch-based SmartStop Self Storage.
Michael Schwartz, CEO of the company, presented Stallions head baseball coach Jeremey Wooten with a check for a new scoreboard at the school’s field on Wednesday, March 19. Wooten was joined by several senior players for the ceremony.
The team, including several parents and supporters, had been working to install a new scoreboard since 2008. Although the school received approval from the Capistrano Unified School District, the team still needed to raise more money. A parent put Wooten in touch with Schwartz, who quickly put up the money to pay for the bulk of the costs.
“This will be a top-notch scoreboard, one of the best for a high school field,” Wooten said in a release. “The community has wanted this for a long, and it’s been a long time coming. But that makes it that much more exciting.”
The scoreboard will take two months to produce and is expected to be installed around the end of the season.
