Christian Moore was a First Team All-American designated hitter while Blake Burke was a First Team All-American first baseman.

Tennessee left fielder Dylan Dreiling landed on the third team after a breakout sophomore season in Knoxville.

Moore hit .375 with 34 home runs, 19 doubles and 74 RBIs in one of the best seasons in Tennessee baseball history. The junior second baseman broke the Tennessee record for most home runs in a single season and became just the second ever player to hit for the cycle in the College World Series.

Tennessee’s star first baseman was also fantastic in the College World Series where he hit .407 with three extra-base hits and five RBIs.

Dreiling went from a fringe starter in his freshman season to one of the best and most clutch players on the Vols’ roster, hitting .341 with 19 doubles, 23 home runs and 75 RBIs. The left-handed hitter earned College World Series Most Outstanding Player honors, hitting .542 with three home runs and 11 RBIs.

The Vols and Texas A&M are the only two teams with two players on the first team. Texas A&M was the only team with more players on the three teams, coming in with five total, while Florida State is tied with Tennessee for the second most of any team.
