Tennessee Baseball Adds to Massive All-America Award List

by -

Throughout the early portion of the Tennessee Baseball offseason, Rocky Top Insider has been keeping you up to date and tracking all of the Vols’ postseason awards. After a record-setting 57-9 regular-season record, Tennessee has had plenty of postseason recognition for individual players from the team.

In the latest All-America awards from D1Baseball.com on Friday, four Volunteers received the coveted honors. Tennessee RHP Chase Dollander was given a First Team All-American nod while RHP Chase Burns was given a Third Team All-American selection.

In addition, both third baseman Trey Lipscomb and outfielder Drew Gilbert were also named Third Team All-Americans on Friday.
