While there’s still a tournament to be played for the game’s top prize this weekend, the Tennessee baseball team looks to be enjoying the moment while gearing up to play in the College World Series this weekend in Omaha.

The Vols seem to be loose and confident as they go into the tournament with an SEC co-regular season title, an SEC Tournament title, and a 5-1 record so far this postseason in their pocket. The team arrived in Omaha on Wednesday before hitting the stadium for Media Day and practice on Thursday.

At some point during Media Day, Tennessee pitchers Zander Sechrist and Nate Snead flipped the script and became the interviewers rather than the interviewees. The Vols duo bounced around the facility as they questioned their teammates and fans around the stadium about the excitement for Omaha.

Tennessee will gear up to play Florida State in their opening game on Friday night at 7:00 p.m. ET from Charles Schwab Stadium. While this is the third time the Vols have reached the College World Series in the last four years, the team is drawing on past experiences to put together a big run while understanding that they’ll have to adapt on the fly, too.

“I think it helps in a lot of different ways that are away from the field, but again, once the game starts, you just have to play ball,” Tennessee head coach Tony Vitello said about returning to Omaha on Thursday.

The Vols enter the College World Series after earning and holding onto the No. 1 overall spot late in the season. Tennessee has been a dynamic team on the mound and a dangerous team at the plate behind power hitters such as Christian Moore, Blake Burke, and Billy Amick. The Vols will look to put all of the pieces together over the next two weeks to capture an NCAA Championship under head coach Tony Vitello.
