Tennessee is on the downhill stretch of its fall practice. The Vols defeated Virginia Tech in an 18 inning scrimmage two weeks ago and faces Samford in an 18 inning scrimmage this Sunday at First Horizon Park in Nashville.
The Vols are coming off a strong 2023 season that saw Tennessee return to the College World Series for the second time in three years. When Vitello’s squad knocked off Stanford in Omaha, it marked Tennessee’s first win at the College World Series since 2001.
Expectations are again high for Tennessee entering the 2024 season. The Vols lost a number of key players, particularly on the mound, but landed a number of impact transfers most notable Clemson infielder Billy Amick and North Carolina State catcher Cannon Peebles.
Tennessee has had an interesting fall practice through of position battles and position tinkering for a number of position players. Read RTI’s latest fall ball update here.
