WATCH: Tennessee Freshman Hits Inside-The-Park Home Run

The Lowdown on Amari Cooper’s Possible Dallas Departure

Tennessee baseball is used to home runs, utilizing “Daddy” hats and fake fur coats as celebration props. Entering the weekend, Tennessee was first in the nation in home runs. They added an interesting long ball in Sunday’s win over Oklahoma when freshman Christian Moore hit an inside-the-park home run.

With Tennessee leading Oklahoma 3-0 in the third inning of  the Vols’ final game at Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic, freshman Christian Moore broke the game open with a two-run inside-the-park home run.

Moore took Oklahoma pitcher Chase Martinez deep to right-centerfield, with the ball hitting hard off the bottom of the wall, easily getting away from Sooners’ centerfielder Tanner Tredaway allowing Moore to easily come home safely.

The freshman from Brooklyn, New York has had a limited role early on in his first collegiate season. Entering Sunday’s game, Moore was hitting .250 with two home runs and seven RBIs in eight at-bats.

Making his first start of the weekend in Houston, Moore has been fantastic in the weekend finale. Earning the start as Tennessee’s designated hitter, the freshman infielder went three-for-four with a pair of extra-base hits and three runs batted in.

The win capped off the weekend in Texas for the Vols as Tony Vitello’s squad posted a 2-1 record.
