Fresh off of their trip to the College World Series over the summer, the Tennessee Baseball team will be back in the field and in front of the local fans in less than two weeks.

“We are proud to announce we will be hosting the [Tennessee Baseball] Orange & White Game on Saturday, November 6th at Smokies Stadium!” the official Smokies Twitter account tweeted on Tuesday.

Additionally, Tennessee baseball added in some more detail behind the Smokies’ original announcement.

“This will serve as Game 2 of our Fall World Series, which will now begin on Friday, Nov. 5 (previously was set to start on Nov. 2),” the Tennessee Baseball Twitter account tweeted in response to the Smokies. “We’ll provide more details on game time next week. Look forward to seeing #VolNation at Smokies Stadium!

Tennessee Football will take on Kentucky on that day, although, it is a road game at 7:00 p.m. ET in Lexington.

Tennessee head coach Tony Vitello spoke about his offseason at the Knoxville Quarterback Club Luncheon on Monday.

“My conversation with [Tennessee AD] Danny White was a slam dunk,” Vitello said according to WATE’s Tim Owens on Twitter. “I was never going anywhere.”
