WATCH: Tennessee Releases Electric SEC Baseball Championship Hype Video

by -

Tennessee baseball swept its way through last weekend’s SEC Tournament in Hoover, claiming the program’s first conference tournament championship since 1995.

The Vols dominated the week in Alabama, furthering their season domination of Florida and Vanderbilt and avenging their lone regular season series loss to Kentucky.

“You want accomplishments,” Tennessee head coach Tony Vitello said. “You could just go in the cage and swing and get a little better with your swing and accomplish something or maybe it’s even something poor and you take confidence from the things that you accomplish and then when you don’t do so well, you can say the old, you win or you learn. You’ve got to learn from those lessons. This just happens to be on a bigger stage, but there was other wins throughout the year. I could go into different teams or whatever, that were big moments, and you take confidence from it.”
