Audio: FM 99.1/99.3/AM 990 - John Wilkerson with Kyle Hixson and Roger Hoover Live Stats: www.UTSports.com Twitter: www.Twitter.com/VolBaseball VOLS AT A GLANCE The University of Tennessee baseball team will close out a five-game homestand on Tuesday when it hosts Lipscomb at 7 p.m. The Volunteers will then travel to the Magnolia State for the second time in three weeks when it makes the trek to Starkville, Miss., for a three-game set against Mississippi State, April 16-18. They will be looking to return to the win column after dropping three of four contests last week. UT suffered a 14-9 setback to Western Carolina last Wednesday before falling in the first and third games of its weekend series with No. 8 Florida. The Orange and White’s lone win on the week came against the Gators on Saturday when senior Stephen McCray tossed 6.1 strong innings, scattering seven hits and allowing just one run while tying his career high with seven strikeouts and not walking a batter. With his effort, the Lilburn, Ga., native staked claim to his team-leading fourth win of the season. Redshirt junior D.J. Leffler came out of the bullpen in all three games against UF, finishing the weekend with four punchouts in 3.1 scoreless innings. The Yorba Linda, Calif., native allowed just one hit and retired 10 of the 11 batters that he faced. Offensively, sophomore Matt Ramsey and junior Josh Liles paced the Big Orange, hitting .455 and .400, respectively, on the week. Juniors Cody Hawn and Blake Forsythe were the team’s top run producers over the course of the four games as both players knocked in six runs. Following their contest against the Bisons on Tuesday, the Vols will open “Super Bulldog Weekend” with a 7:30 p.m. ET contest at Dudy Noble Field. UT and MSU will then square off at 2 p.m. ET the next day before closing out the series with a 2:30 p.m. ET showdown on Sunday. SCOUTING LIPSCOMB Lipscomb enters Tuesday’s showdown with a 12-21 record, but is coming off a strong weekend in which it took two of three games from Kennesaw State at home. The Bisons won the first two games by scores of 4-3 and 6-0, before dropping a 12-11 decision on Sunday. Brothers Lee and Tyler Wilson lead the Lipscomb offense this season as they are hitting .385 and .342, respectively. Junior Cory Hale, meanwhile, has been the team’s top home run threat with eight longballs and is tied with fellow classmate Zach Messer for the team lead with 34 RBIs. Senior right-hander Matt Bowling will get the start for Lipscomb against the Vols. He is 0-3 with a 15.26 ERA in 10 appearances and will be making his fourth start this season. SERIES HISTORY Tuesday’s game will be the eighth all-time encounter between Tennessee and Lipscomb. The Volunteers lead the series 61, including a 17-3 triumph in Knoxville on April 8 last year. The Bisons won 6-4 in Nashville the previous season after dropping the first five contests in the series prior to that, dating back to a 5-3 defeat in 1979. LAST SEASON Tennessee pounded out 19 hits, including home runs by Charley Thurber and Josh Liles, and scored multiple runs in three innings to defeat Lipscomb 17-3 in a mid-week contest on April 8, 2009, in Knoxville. Seven of nine Volunteer starters collected two hits as the Big Orange matched its season high of 19. Thurber finished the game 2-for-5 with three RBIs and P.J. Polk added two more RBIs with a 2-for-3 performance at the plate. ALL MEETINGS April 8, 2009 March 18, 2008 March 6, 2007 May 17, 2005 March 16, 2004 April 1, 1982 March 24, 1979

TODD RALEIGH

Turn up the VOLume

Third Season Western Carolina, 1991 Record at UT: 69-75 (.479) Career Record: 326-284 (.534) 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 ““Bryan Morgado is one of the best pitchers, certainly in our league, but maybe in the country. He’s a kid that’s throwing 90 left-handed, he’s got three pitches -- the matchup for us was a legit (pitcher), one of the best guys in the league.” — LSU Head Coach Paul Mainieri

NOTEWORTHY QuiCK HITS uJunior P.J. Polk saw his career-long 13-game hitting streak come to an end against No. 8 Florida on April 11. Polk hit .303 (23-for57) during the run with six home runs, 18 RBIs, 18 runs and seven stolen bases in seven attempts. uIn his first eight starts of 2010, senior Stephen McCray has already induced 60 groundball outs while giving up just 43 flyouts in 49.2 innings, good for a 1.40 groundout/ flyout ratio. In comparison, McCray’s G/F ratio last season was 0.75, as he recorded just 44 groundouts in 52.1 total innings of work. uJunior Khayyan Norfork saw his seasonhigh 10-game hitting streak come to an end against Florida on Sunday. During the streak, he hit at a .333 clip (15-for-45) with a home run, three doubles, nine RBIs and nine runs. uDespite the fact that it dropped its first seven conference games, Tennessee was close in each one, as it has been either tied or within one run in either the seventh or eighth inning in all but one contest. Unfortunately, the Big Orange allowed 23 runs in the final three innings of those first seven games, as opposed to just 26 in frames one through six. uIncluding his two seasons at North Carolina, Tennessee junior and Knoxville native Rob Catapano has started 12 collegiate games. The team he has started for has won all 12 contests, including all five of the games he has started this season for the Big Orange. uJunior Josh Liles seems to have found the extra-base button recently, as four of his seven extra-base hits this season have come in the past six games. He has had at least one hit in each of those six contests as well. uScoring the initial run of the game has been a key to victory for Tennessee this season as it is 10-3 when it cracks the scoreboard first. When they allow their opponent to do so, however, the Vols are just 6-14 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. uThe 25 runs scored by Tennessee against Presbyterian College on April 1 marked the eighth-highest single-game run total in school history. The team saw its collective batting average rise 11 points on the night. FORSYTHE, DUFFY STARTING TO HEAT UP Although juniors Blake Forsythe and Matt Duffy both got off to a slow start at the plate this season, they have begun to heat up recently. Forsythe has hit safely in 10 of the team’s last 13 contests after recording a hit in just eight of the first 20 games of the year. During his six-game hitting streak from March 23-31, Forsythe hit at a .409 clip (9-for-22) with two home runs, a double and five RBIs. Duffy started to turn things around at the beginning of conference play, during which he is second on the team with a .333 batting average. In the first game of a doubleheader against LSU on March 27, Duffy launched his first home run in a Tennessee uniform. HIs second came at Ole Miss on April 3. He had 16 in his first two collegiate seasons, which he played at Vermont. putting the pedal to the metal The Vols have been considerably more aggressive on the basebaths this season than they have been in either of the first two years of the Raleigh regime. Through 33 games, Tennessee has already stolen 45 bases, led by 17 from junior P.J. Polk. By comparison, the team had just 39 in 2009 with Josh Liles leading the way with a squadbest eight. Polk joins Andy Simunic (20) in 2008 as the only player in the last three years to reach double-digits in stolen bases. brothers in arms The story of this season for UT has been start6ing pitching. Through 33 games, Bryan Morgado, Steven Gruver, Stephen McCray, Rob Catapano, Steve Crnkovich and Aaron Tullo have combined to post a 4.32 ERA. In comparison the ERA for Tennessee starters at the end of the 2009 campaign was 6.29. For the year, the Tennessee pitching staff has limited opposing hitters to a batting average of .261, good for fifth in the league. Senior Stephen McCray is fifth among all SEC players with an opposing batting average of .207, while junior Bryan Morgado ranks eighth in the conference, as opposing hitters are batting just .221 off of him. setting the table Tennessee has been tremendously successful at finding ways to get on base to start an inning this season. Through 33 games, the Vols have reached base 121 times in 291 leadoff opportunities, which equates to 41.6 percent of the time. Less than half of those successful chances have come via a hit though, as UT leadoff hitters are batting just .252 (59-for-234) this season. Instead, the Vols have been working their way on base with 47 leadoff walks and 10 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 16 players combine to play a total of 36 different positions. The list is below: Cody Grisham (4) - 2B/SS/3B/RF Matt Hamaker (4) - C/1B/3B/LF Matt Duffy (3) - 3B/SS/LF Blake Forsythe (3) - C/1B/3B Chris Fritts (3) - LF/CF/RF Josh Liles (3) - LF/CF/RF Drew Steckenrider (3) - LF/CF/RF Cody Hawn (2) - 1B/3B Adam King (2) - C/1B Khayyan Norfork (2) - 2B/LF PJ Polk (2) - LF/CF Zach Osborne (1) - SS Cody Stubbs (1) - 1B Charley Thurber (1) - RF Matt Ramsey (1) - RF Andy Yates (1) - LF shuffling the deck The same theory applies to the batting order, as Todd Raleigh has used a total of 32 different ineups through the first 33 games in an attempt to find the combination that will allow the UT offense to run most efficiently. The Vols used their Opening Day batting order on Feb. 26 at Oregon State but have used a different combination in every game since. ramsey and steckenrider showing off their versatility Tennessee has a pair of two-way players on its roster this season in sophomore Matt Ramsey and freshman Drew Steckenrider. Both players double as power-arms out of the bullpen with fastballs that routinely sit in the mid-90s, as well as power-hitting outfielders. Steckenrider has seen more action on the mound than at the plate during his rookie campaign, as he has struck out eight batters in six innings of work. His only hit of the season came in his first collegiate at bat, when he lined a home run over the right-field fence at Lindsey Nelson Stadium against Xavier on Feb. 19. Ramsey, meanwhile, has provided a spark offensively for the Vols since first being insterted into the lineup against LSU on March 27. Since then, he has 12 hits, seven of them for extra bases. The Knoxville native also doubles as the team’s closer, having picked up one win and one save in 12 appearances. He has 18 punchouts in 14.2 innings. Polk garners conference, national honors after stellar week Following a week in which he hit .524 while leading Tennessee to a 4-1 record March 30-April 4, junior P.J. Polk was honored with a pair of accolades, claiming Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week honors from Collegiate Baseball newspaper in addition to his second Southeastern Conference Player of the Week award this season. Polk finished the week with a team-high 11 2010 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes


hits in 24 at-bats to pace the Volunteers to mid-week triumphs over Tennessee Tech and Presbyterian College and back-to-back victories on the road against No. 11 Ole Miss to lead UT to its first SEC series victory of the season. A 5-9 outfielder, he also paced the squad with nine runs while blasting out four longballs, including the first two home run performance of his career against the Rebels on Saturday. In all, the Murfreesboro, Tenn., native had four home runs on the week to give him a team-leading six on the year. He had at least one hit in all five games to extend his seasonlong hitting streak to 10 games, moving him within one of his career-long streak of 11 games. Polk slugged at an incredible 1.095 rate while posting an on-base percentage of .615 as he walked four times and was hit by a pitch once. He also stole two bases in two attempts to increase his team-high total to 14 on the year. THURBER named “care”acter star athlete of the week Sophomore outfielder Charley Thurber 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 6-4 left-hander from Elmira, N.Y., Thurber has appeared in 20 games, starting 14 in right field. He is hitting .234 with three home runs and 15 RBIs, has stolen a pair of bases and scored nine runs. This semester, Thurber 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 3.33 GPA as an arts and sciences 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.” Sophomore pitcher Adam Adkins was UT’s first award winner. morgado claims sec pitcher of the week accolades Following a stellar outing against Connecticut on Saturday, March 13, University of Tennessee junior southpaw Bryan Morgado became 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, 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 2010 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes

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. 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 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. POLK CLAIMS INITIAL SEC PLAYER OF THE WEEK HONORS OF 2010 SEASON After leading Tennessee to its first seasonopening series sweep since 2004 with a trio of three-hit performances, junior outfielder P.J. Polk was named the first Southeastern Conference Player of the Week of the 2010 campaign on Feb. 22. The Murfreesboro, Tenn., native was 9-for-12 during the opening weekend, good for a stellar .750 batting average. In addition to his nine hits, Polk also walked three times to allow him to reach base safely in 12 of his 16 plate appearances. The 5-9 speedster posted a tremendous 1.083 slugging percentage with four doubles and five singles, while also adding a pair of stolen bases, two RBIs, a sacrifice fly, as assist from his position in left field and a team-high seven runs. The award was the second of Polk’s career, as he also earned the honors in week nine last season after hitting for a .455 average in the Volunteers’ series win on the road against top-ranked LSU. morgado returns for junior season; back in the rotation A third-round pick by the Chicago White Sox in 2009, UT junior Bryan Morgado is one of just two college players drafted in the first three rounds to return to school, joining Arizona State pitcher Josh Spence.

In 2009, the Miami, Fla., native started five games and made 15 appearances out of the bullpen for the Volunteers. He finished the year with a 4-2 record, a 6.36 ERA and two saves, while striking out a team high 75 batters in 52 1/3 innings. The 6-3 left-hander has returned to the Tennessee rotation as its Friday night starter in 2010 after spending most of his sophomore campaign pitching out of the bullpen. hawn rakes in preseason honors Following a monster year in his first yeat at Tennessee, junior first baseman Cody Hawn has been raking in the preseason awards.

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. 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. 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.

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.”
