Audio: FM 99.1/99.3 or AM 990 - John Wilkerson with Kyle Hixson Live Stats: www.UTSports.com Twitter: www.Twitter.com/VolBaseball VOLS AT A GLANCE The University of Tennessee baseball team is 10-7 on the season with wins in six of its last eight games. The Volunteers picked up a dominating 13-2 victory over Morehead State on Wednesday after claiming triumphs in two of their three games at the inaugural Arby’s Classic this past weekend, defeating Connecticut and Marshall, while falling to No. 17 Ohio State. The Volunteers got an absolutely outstanding performance from junior southpaw Bryan Morgado on Saturday against the Huskies, as he allowed just one hit in seven innings of shutout baseball, while striking out a season-high nine en route to SEC Pitcher of the Week honors. With his nine punch-outs, Morgado moved his career total to 208, passing Luke Hudson (202) and Wyatt Allen (203) for sole possession of ninth place on UT’s all-time strikeout list. The tides turned on the Big Orange the following day, as preseason All-American Alex Wimmers held the Vols scoreless through eight frames while leading No. 17 Ohio State to a 2-0 triumph. The Orange and White came right back out after that loss and used a two home run performance by sophomore Zach Osborne to propel itself to a dominating 13-8 win over Marshall. The Louisville, Ky. native finished the game 2-for-5 with his second and third home runs of the season and a career-high five RBIs. On the mound, freshman Alan Walden earned the first victory of his collegiate career, tossing two shutout innings in relief of UT starter Aaron Tullo. Following the first two home run performance of his career, Osborne was named the Most Valuable Player of the Arby’s Classic. Against Morehead State, Osborne picked up right where he left off with a first-inning grand slam that helped the Vols score 10 runs in the first two innings en route to an easy win. SCOUTING SOUTH CAROLINA South Carolina this weekend’s series with a seven-game winning streak and a 13-4 overall record, including a 9-1 mark at home at Carolina Stadium. After dropping two-of-three to rival Clemson March 7-9, the Gamecocks tallied a pair of mid-week victories over Valparaiso before sweeping a weekend set against Brown. USC then defeated both Furman and Davidson earlier this week in its final two contests before SEC play. Junior Whit Merrifield, who saw his school record 26-game hitting streak snapped last weekend, enters the weekend with a .351 batting average, has scored a team-high 23 runs and also has three home runs and 17 RBIs. On the mound, the South Carolina pitching staff has been tough to hit so far this season as it leads the conference with an opponent batting average of .214 in addition to notching a league-high 183 strikeouts. SERIES HISTORY Friday night’s game will be the 74th all-time encounter between Tennessee and South Carolina. The Gamecocks currently hold a 40-33, including wins in four of the last six contests between the two squads. USC took two of three from the Big Orange both in Knoxville last season and in Columbia in 2008.

TODD RALEIGH

Turn up the VOLume

Third Season Western Carolina, 1991 Record at UT: 63-64 (.496) Career Record: 320-273 (.540) Tennessee head coach Todd Raleigh is in his second season at Tennessee after guiding his alma mater, Western Carolina, for eight seasons. While at Tennessee, Raleigh has had seven players drafted, including two in 2008 and five more in 2009, highlighted by first-round pick Kentrail Davis. In 18 seasons as a collegiate coach, Raleigh has now produced a total of 39 MLB draft picks and 56 professional players. That number will undoubtedly continue to grow as 2009 third-round selection Bryan Morgado made the decision to return to Knoxville for a chance to continue to grow under Raleigh’s leadership during his junior campaign. During his tenure in Cullowhee, Raleigh’s clubs won two regular-season Southern Conference championships, one Southern Conference tournament title, turned in five top-three league finishes and made a pair of NCAA Regional appearances—reaching the Regional final both times. His 2007 WCU team posted a winning record against teams in the top 35 of the RPI and earned a rare mid-major at-large bid to the NCAA Championships. The Catamounts were touted by ESPN’s Kyle Peterson as featuring an “SEC-style offense.” In 18 collegiate seasons, Raleigh has coached 56 players who have gone on to play professional baseball, including 13 players who were drafted in the top-10 rounds and seven who have advanced onto Major League rosters. In those 18 seasons as a collegiate assistant or head coach, Raleigh’s teams have finished third or better in their respective league 12 times (67 percent). Raleigh and his wife, Stephanie, have three children: Cal (12), Emma Grace (10) and Carley (3).

TODD RALEIGH NOTES u Raleigh led an offensive juggernaut in 2007 that ranked fifth nationally in runs per game (8.4), sixth nationally in home runs per game (1.4), scoring (8.4) and slugging percentage (.517), seventh in doubles per game (2.39) and 11th in batting average (.323). u Raleigh’s 2008 UT squad hit 67 home runs in just 56 games, the fifth-highest single-season total in program history. u The Vols improved upon that number in Raleigh’s second season, blasting out 87 home runs in 55 games, good for the second-best single-season total in UT history. u Despite fielding a lineup that regularly included six or more underclassmen in 2009, UT improved its RPI by 31 positions from the previous season, moving from 89 to 58. u Under Raleigh’s guidance, first-year Vol Cody Hawn became just the 10th player in UT history to claim the team Triple Crown with a .364 batting average, 22 home runs and 81 RBIs.

“Tennessee has everything. It’s the state school, the flagship school. We can recruit this state, and there are enough good players in this state to win a national championship. We’ve got to build this program from the inside out, and that’s what we plan on doing.” — Head Coach Todd Raleigh “When you make a crazy play like that, say when you are younger, you’re like ‘Man, what if there was a TV camera around? That could end up on SportsCenter.’ Luckily they dug through it and found a video, and I was just sitting there on my couch. It was weird seeing me and then LeBron. It was crazy.” — UT Outfielder Chris Fritts “I think we’ve done a good job of building a foundation that we need to build, but obviously, with that comes the end product. The end product for us is winning some games, and I think we’re poised to do that. I think what we had to do was go through the right process and we have gone through those proper channels. I feel excited about this season. We’ve got a tremendous team. We’re more athletic, more physical, we’re deeper, we’re better. You combine that with the way we ended last year, the momentum we had, I feel like we’re going to have a great year, I really do.” — Head Coach Todd Raleigh “The renovations that have been made to the stadium are unbelievable. It’s a place we can call home now. Coming to the park every day, I feel really at home and proud to be a part of this team and this university. This is probably the most talented team I’ve been a part of at Tennessee. Our depth is just tremendous and everywhere on the field is a strong point.” — Junior Catcher Blake Forsythe “I’ve been a fan my entire life and I will be even when I leave this university. It’s always going to be home to me. No matter if I’m here playing or watching younger guys several years down the road, I will always want to see UT do well and hopefully we can really turn it around and become one of the premier programs in the country, starting this year.” — Junior First Baseman Cody Hawn

A 2005 loss to Clemson which started at home, was halted, and then concluded on a different date on the road is not included in Raleigh’s home-away-neutral record.

NOTEWORTHY QuiCK HITS uSophomore Zach Osborne has been absolutely on fire the past two games, hitting .556 (5-for-9) with three home runs, five runs scored and nine RBIs. He had his first career two-home run game against Marshall on Sunday before hitting another in his first at-bat versus Morehead State on Wednesday, giving him three longballs in a span of four at-bats. uIn his first four starts of 2010, senior Stephen McCray has already induced 39 groundballs while giving up just 16 flyouts, good for an astounding 2.44 groundout/flyout ratio. In comparison, McCray’s G/F ratio last season was 0.75, as he recorded just 44 groundouts in 27.2 more innings than he has pitched this season. uScoring the initial run of the game has been a key to victory for Tennesse this season as it is 7-1 when it cracks the scoreboard first. When they allows its opponent to do so, however, the Vols are just 3-5 with two of those wins coming on walk-off hits in the bottom of the ninth. uUT scored 40 runs in its season-opening sweep over Xavier, the most since it tallied 47 in a three-game set against Radford in 2005. morgado claims sec pitcher of the week accolades Following a stellar outing against Connecticut last Saturday, University of Tennessee junior southpaw Bryan Morgado has become the first Volunteer in nearly three years to claim Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week honors. The last UT player to earn the accolades was James Adkins in the 12th week of the 2007 campaign. Morgado twirled an absolute gem in the Orange and White’s 3-2 victory over the Huskies this weekend, claiming his second win of the season with seven shutout innings of one-hit ball. The 6-3 lefty set a season high with nine strikeouts, while surrendering just one hit in the first inning. He then proceeded to sit down 19 of the final 21 batters he faced,

including 12 straight at one point. He allowed just one runner, the double in the opening frame, to advance past first base during his seven innings on the mound. With his nine punch-outs, Morgado moved his career total to 208, passing Luke Hudson (202) and Wyatt Allen (203) for sole possession of ninth place on UT’s all-time strikeout list. He currently ranks fourth in the SEC with an opponent batting average of just .188 and ninth with 22.2 innings pitched. He also ranks fourth in total strikeouts with 29, including a league-high 13 of the looking-variety. setting the table Tennessee has been extremely successful at finding ways to get on base to start an inning this season. Through 16 games, the Vols have reached base 64 times in 151 leadoff opportunities, which equates to 42.4 percent of the time. Only 23 of those successful chances have come via a hit though, as UT leadoff hitters are batting just .233 (27-for-116) this season. Instead, the Vols have been working their way on base with 27 leadoff walks and eight hit-batters. SO many choices... When UT Head Coach Todd Raleigh fills out his lineup card, he certainly has plenty of options at hand defensively. Already this season, UT has had 14 players combine to play a total of 30 different positions. The list is below: Matt Duffy (3) - 3B/SS/LF Blake Forsythe (3) - C/1B/3B Chris Fritts (3) - LF/CF/RF Cody Grisham (3) - 2B/SS/3B Matt Hamaker (3) - C/1B/3B Drew Steckenrider (3) - LF/CF/RF Adam King (2) - C/1B Josh Liles (2) - CF/RF Khayyan Norfork (2) - 2B/LF PJ Polk (2) - LF/CF Cody Hawn (1) - 1B Zach Osborne (1) - SS Cody Stubbs (1) - 1B Charley Thurber (1) - RF brothers in arms The story of the past 10 games for UT has been starting pitching as Bryan Morgado, Steven Gruver, Stephen McCray, Rob Catapano and Aaron Tullo have combined to post a 1.70 ERA, allowing just 10 earned runs on 33 hits in 53.0 innings. They have also struck out 45 batters during their recent run of success, while walking only 13 and holding opposing hitters to a .175 batting average with just 10 extra-base hits. For the year, the Tennessee pitching staff has limited opposing hitters to a batting average of .234, good for second in the league. Senior Stephen McCray leads all SEC players with an opposing batting average of .153, while junior Bryan Morgado ranks third as opposing hitters are batting just .188 off of him.

adkins named “care”acter star athlete of the week Sophomore pitcher Adam Adkins has been selected as UT’s CAREacter Star Athlete of the Week. The CAREacter Program is based on a five-point star system that includes the basic traits of a true champion, whether on or off the field. Those traits are attitude, character, grades, community service and performance. A southpaw from Goodlettsville, Tenn., Adkins has appeared in three games, striking out two in 2.2 innings, and has an ERA of 6.75. This semester, Adkins is participating in the VOLScholar Program for academic and citizenship-building and wears the VOLScholar logo on his uniform as the holder of a 3.0 or better grade-point average. The sophomore has a 3.2 GPA as an agricultural major. Every two weeks one student-athlete is selected as the school’s “Star Athlete of the Week” based on the aforementioned five criteria. As a reward for their accomplishments, honorees will be recognized each week by their local media and presented with a T-shirt and a letter acknowledging them as their county’s “Star Athlete of the Week.” hAmmerin’ hamaker Senior Matt Hamaker had a breakout offensive performance against Eastern Kentucky on March 3, notching the first two home run performance of his UT career. The 5-11 Clarksville, Tenn., native had just one home run in his first 31 at-bats as a Vol before blasting two in three plate appearances versus the Colonels. Fritts’ Diving Catch Earns Spot Among SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays of the Day The diving catch made by University of Tennessee freshman outfielder Chris Fritts in the seventh inning of the Vols’ Feb. 28 game against No. 10 Oregon State in Corvallis, Ore., was tabbed No. 9 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 “Plays of the Day” on Monday, March 1. It was also shown on the show “SportsNation” the following day, when it was voted “More Athletic” than an in-your-face dunk by the Phoenix Suns’ Amar’e Stoudemire. It did not, however, win a vote against a LeBron James alley-oop when it was up for the best play of the week award, but it did garner 39 percent of the vote. With a runner on first and one out just moments after the Beavers scored their first run of the day on Sunday, OSU’s Carter Bell drove an 0-1 pitch from UT starter Stephen McCray to deep left. Although the ball was slicing away from him, Fritts made a leaping grab, somersaulted on the warning track and gunned it back into shortstop Zach Osborne who was able to relay it to Cody Stubbs at first to double up Parker Berberet to end the inning and the Oregon State threat. Gruver Recognized as CB360 Primetime Pitcher of the Week After logging seven shutout innings against 10th-ranked Oregon State on Feb. 27, University of Tennessee sophomore 2010 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes


southpaw Steven Gruver was named the CollegeBaseball360.com Primetime Pitcher of the Week, the web site announced March 2. A native of Canfield, Ohio, Gruver picked up the first win of his collegiate career with a sterling performance against the Beavers on Saturday, getting the Volunteers back on track after a 17-1 loss the previous night. The 6-1 lefty threw seven shutout innings, while striking out a career-high nine and allowing only three hits and one walk. Gruver allowed just two runners to reach second and none to advance to third during his time on the mound. He threw a total of 97 pitches with 65 going for strikes and sat down 11 of the final 12 batters he faced, including 10 straight at one point. FORSYTHE NAMED TO JOHNNY BENCH AWARD WATCH LIST Following a stellar sophomore season and a strong start to the 2010 campaign, the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission announced that UT junior catcher Blake Forsythe was named to the Watch List for the 2010 Coleman Company Johnny Bench Award delivered by Papa John’s Pizza. Fifty-three catchers were nominated for the award by their coaches. Because the award is given annually to the top division one catcher, the list will be updated to include other candidates until May 5, 2010.

vols name captains for 2010 season The Tennessee baseball team announced Wednesday that juniors Blake Forsythe, Josh Liles, Bryan Morgado and Rob Catapano will serve the squad’s captains for the 2010 campaign. SUMMER LEAGUE SUCCESS for vols After a strong finish to the 2009 season, a numbe of Vols were able to carry that momentum over into summer league action where they put their talents on full display. Junior Bryan Morgado spent his summer helping to lead the Bourne Braves to their first-ever league championship in the prestigious Cape Cod League. In the regular season portion of the team’s schedule, he threw 32.1 innings, amassing a 2-1 record with a 3.06 ERA in eight appearances, including six starts. While Morgado was setting down hitters in Cape Cod, UT sophomore Steven Gruver was dominating the Northwoods League, earning postseason all-star honors. As the undisputed ace of the La Crosse Loggers pitching staff, Gruver put together a stellar 7-1 record and 2.23 ERA in 14 appearances, while leading his team to the championship series. forSYTHE SPENDS SUMMER WITH USA COLLEGIATE NATIONAL TEAM Following a breakout season in 2009, junior catcher Blake Forsythe completed a stint with the USA Collegiate Baseball National Team this summer, where he hit at a .293 clip with a pair of home runs and nine RBIs. He also walked 21 times in as many games, en route to an impressive .500 on-base percentage. He is the 17th Vol to have either played for or been invited to try out for Team USA. new faces in the crowd The Volunteers have welcomed 14 newcomers to Rocky Top this season. Highlighting the group are four freshmen that heard their name called in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft. The class includes a total of nine freshmen, two transfers and three junior college players.

catapano brings cws experience Junior left-handed pitcher Rob Catapano brings an element to this year’s team that no other Volunteer can claim: experience playing in the College World Series. The 6-0 Knoxville native is donning the Orange and White for the first time in 2010 after sitting out a season after transferring from North Carolina. During his time as a Tar Heel, Catapano amassed a 5-1 record and 3.42 ERA in 46 appearances, including seven starts. North Carolina advanced to the College World Series in both of his seasons in Chapel Hill. Catapano twirled 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief against Rice, as well as a a third of an inning versus Oregon State in the squad’s first go-around and another perfect inning against Fresno State the following year. new faces on the coaching staff In addition to the 14 new players, Tennessee also welcomes a trio of new coaches in pitching coach Jason Beverlin, volunteer assistant Bill Currier and strength and conditioning coach Herman Demmink. Former volunteer assistant Nate Headley also moved into a fulltime position as the team’s director of operations during the offseason. homegrown talent plentiful on tennessee roster Tennessee’s roster includes 16 players from the state of Tennessee (44 percent of the roster). Four Vols are from Knox County and one is from Hamilton County (Chattanooga), while five other hail from West Tennessee and six are from Middle Tennessee. VERMONT’s loss is tennessee’s gain When the University of Vermont made the decision to disband its baseball program last year, Catamount coaches and players were not sure what their futures held. For two, shortstop Matt Duffy and head coach Bill Currier, their paths would lead to Tennessee. The 2009 America East Conference Player of the Year, Duffy found out he would be playing

in Knoxville in April. It wasn’t until the next January though, that he discovered that he would be joined by his former head coach, as Bill Currier assumed the reigns as UT’s volunteer assistant coach. Duffy, who has moved to third with the Vols, hit .388 with 13 home runs and 57 RBIs en route to second-team All-American honors. Currier coached at Vermont for 22 years, putting together a record of 486-470. FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING According to freshman outfielder Chris Fritts, the sacrifice bunt he laid down in the third inning of UT’s 17-1 win over Xavier on Sun., Feb. 21, was the first of his life, including high school and summer league ball. “I didn’t even really think about it until I got back to the dugout and all of the guys were giving me high-fives,” Fritts said. “Bunting was not one of my strong points when I got here, but I’ve done a lot of extra work before practices to get better at it, so it felt good to get that first one down.” second phase of renovations underway at lindsey nelson stadium The second of four phases of renovations is nearing completion at Lindsey Nelson Stadium. Crews have already finished adding a new club area and MVP seating behind home plate that will allow fans to sit closer to the field. Permanent chair-back seating has also been added throughout the entire main grandstand, while the stadium’s exterior has been faced with brick. In addition, the visitor’s locker room behind the third-base dugout has been renovated and a a new batting cage facility, approximately 60 yards in length, will be added down the right-field line. The first phase, complete prior to the 2009 season, included more than $4 million worth of improvements, primarily to player development areas. Work was finished on a team clubhouse that features a state-of-the art locker room, training room and coaches’ office complex. Phase I also included the addition of
