Last Time Out...

 Tennessee participated in the 2012 Houston College Classic at Minute Maid Park this past weekend, going 1-2 with a victory over No. 16 Texas and losses to Houston and No. 4 Rice.  The Vols opened the week with their first defeat of the season, falling in 10 innings to MTSU in Knoxville on Tuesday despite another ninth-inning miracle comeback to tie the game.  In the Lone Star State three days later, the Vols tried to put together another late rally, scoring three runs and bringing the go-ahead run to the plate in the ninth against Houston, but came up just once again, falling 7-4 to the Cougars.  On Saturday, junior Zack Godley need just 68 pitches to get through career-high seven innings on the mound to lead the Orange and White to a 5-4 triumph over No. 16 Texas.  The Vols then closed out their stay at the Houston College Classic with a tough, 11-1, loss on Sunday night to No. 4 Rice as the Owls turned the tides on UT, scoring four runs in the first two innings.

Serrano made 15 appearances as part of Garrido’s pitching staff at Cal State Fullerton in 1986.  En route to the program’s first College World Series berth, Serrano’s UC-Irvine squad also defeated Texas twice in the Round Rock Regional in the 2007 NCAA Tournament.

2012 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes


DAVE SERRANO HEAD COACH

12

First Season at Tennessee Overall Record: 297-142-1 (.675) Cerritos College, 1985 Trinity College & University, 2003

Following a nationwide search, Dave Serrano’s energy and passion for the University of Tennessee, combined with his impeccable track record of success made him the choice to become the 24th head coach of the Volunteer baseball program. A former UT assistant, he was welcomed back to the Big Orange family on June 15, 2011. A veteran of seven College World Series and one of just 11 coaches to lead two different programs to Omaha, Serrano arrives at Rocky Top with a career record of 289-139-1 (.675) in seven seasons as a Division I head coach. After leading UC Irvine to the 2007 CWS in his third year at the helm of the Anteaters, he moved on to Cal State Fullerton where he averaged 43.75 wins per season in his four campaigns with the Titans, including an appearance in Omaha in 2009. Serrano, 46, returns to the site of his first Division I job, as he served two seasons as an assistant coach at Tennessee from 1995-96, following seven years at Cerritos Junior College. His first taste of Omaha came as a Volunteer, as he helped lead a Big Orange squad featuring all-time UT greats Todd Helton and R.A. Dickey to the College World Series for the first time in over four decades in 1995. During Serrano’s first stint in Knoxville, Tennessee posted an impressive 97-36 (.729) record, including a school-record 54 wins in 1995. Serrano recently finished his fourth season as the head coach at Cal State Fullerton, where he earned Big West Coach of the Year honors for the second season in a row after leading the Titans to their 20th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. He previously claimed Baseball America National Coach of the Year accolades after guiding UC Irvine to the first College World Series appearance in program history in 2007. During his 17 seasons at the Division I level, Serrano has posted an impeccable track record that includes continuous top 25 recruiting classes and 16 postseason bids. He has also tutored 161 draft picks, including seven first-round selections, dating back to the start of his coaching career at Cerritos College in 1988, a total of 23 of which have reached the Major League level. Serrano graduated from Cerritos High School in 1982 and played two seasons at Cerritos College. In 1985, he went 12-1 and earned junior college All-American honors while helping the Falcons to a 39-5 record en route to the state championship. Serrano then pitched for Augie Garrido’s 1986 Cal State Fullerton squad, posting a 3-4 record with one save in 15 appearances. In 2010, Serrano represented his country for the first time in his career, serving as the pitching coach for Bill Kinneberg’s USA Baseball Collegiate National Team. He helped coach the team, which included Titan pupils Nick Ramirez and Noe Ramirez, to a V FISU Championship silver medal in Tokyo, Japan. Serrano has coached 19 players that have starred for USA Baseball National Teams, including Helton, Dickey and Augie Ojeda from Tennessee. Serrano holds a bachelor’s degree from Trinity College and University (2003) and was born on June 28, 1964, in Torrence, Calif. He and his wife, Tracy, have three sons, Kyle, Zachary and Parker.

TWO PROGAMS TO OMAHA

“Coach Serrano was the pitching coach when I was at Tennessee, and it was obvious even then that he was going to be a very successful head coach down the road. He has certainly proven that, taking both UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton to the College World Series. He is extremely knowledgeable about the game of baseball, and Vol fans should be very excited that we were able to steal him away. I look forward to him getting the Tennessee program back on the winning track.” -- Todd Helton, former Vol and five-time MLB All-Star “Dave is a guy that believes in the legacy of Tennessee baseball and I feel like that is a big part of what this program is all about. I know it was when I was here. I’m certainly aware that I am no more than the product of people that poured into me well and loved on me well while I was here, two of them being Bill Mosiello and Dave Serrano. I think whatever level of talent I brought into UT from high school, they cultivated it.” -- R.A. Dickey , former Vol and current New York Mets Pitcher “I think the world of him, not only as a baseball coach, but as a business man and a people person. From the chair I sit in, the Tennessee’s search has been a very successful venture and will be putting a coach in a position to make a significant impact for the sport of baseball at that university. The SEC is already a great league and the addition of Dave only makes it even more competitive. He is simply one of the brightest young minds in college baseball.” -- George Horton, Oregon baseball coach “Coach Serrano is, without question, one of the best coaches in all of baseball today, at any level. He has a unique ability to not just put together great teams but to build a successful and sustainable program that will be known as one of excellence both on and off the field. He is a great friend and has an amazing wife and family. The Vols have hit a grand slam with this hire and I look for Tennessee to be in Omaha in the very near future.” -- Jim Schlossnagle, TCU baseball coach

Notes on the Vols... Vols Return to Houston College Classic

 Tennessee will made its third appearance in the Houston College Classic when it made the trek to the Lone Star State, March 2-4. The Vols dropped a 7-4 decision to Houston on the first day before bouncing back with an impressive, 5-4, triumph over No. 16 Texas on Saturday. UT then fell to Rice, 11-1, in the final game of the weekend. Senior shortstop Zach Osborne was named to the all-tournament team. The event was held at the home of the Houston Astros, Minute Maid Park. The Vols previously participated in the event in both 2005 and 2008.

Serrano Already Making History

 Head Coach Dave Serrano helped lead the Vols to the second-best start in school history, as they tallied seven straight wins to open the 2012 campaign.  The 7-0 start also marked the best by any UT skipper to start his Tennessee managerial career, topping the previous mark of 4-0 set by William H. Newman in 1902 and tied by Z.G. Clevenger in 1911.  Best Starts in School History Year Head Coach Start 2003 Rod Delmonico 8-0 1992 Rod Delmonico 8-0 2011 Dave Serrano 7-0 2001 Rod Delmonico 5-0 1987 John Whited 5-0 1978 Bill Wright 5-0 1908 Frank Moffett 5-0 1995 Rod Delmonico 4-0 1983 John Whited 4-0 1911 Z.G.

Osborne the Ironman

 The only four-year starter on the UT roster, senior shortstop Zach Osborne is likely to play more games in the Orange and White than almost anyone in Tennessee history. The Louisville, Ky., native has played in 172 games in his collegiate career, placing him just 14 games outside of the top-10 in school history.  Tennessee Career Games Played Games Player 1. 219 Michael Rivera 2. 217 Ed Lewis 3. 210 Travis Copley 4. 209 Jeff Christensen 5. 206 Justin Parker 6. 202 Cody Brown 7. 199 Todd Helton 8. 192 Brandon Hopkins 9. 188 Josh Liles 10. 186 Chris Burke -- 172 Zach Osborne Page 4

 Osborne started 148 consecutive games, spanning a total of 795 days, before a bruised finger kept him out of the lineup for two games late during the 2010 campaign.

Williams Moving Up Saves List

 Since an injury ended Matt Ramsey’s season last year, Nick Williams has become a fixture at the back-end of the Tennessee bullpen, having already notched six saves just 11 games into his sophomore campaign.  That total ties him for 10th all-time in UT history with four other players.

pearances, going 5-for-8 (.625) with a pair of doubles and his second career home run. He also served as the team’s Opening Day starter, picking up the win after allowing just two hits and no runs and striking out two in his pre-determined four innings of work.

Vols Unveil New Unis

 Tennessee unveiled a new set of uniforms designed to create more of a traditional look for the Vols when they hit the field this season. “It brings back a little bit of history to UT baseball and I think it gives us a sharp look,” Serrano said. In addition to the team’s black batting practice top, Tennessee will also have separate orange and white tops with black piping and script Vols across the chest, as well as a traditional gray road uniform. The Big Orange will have their choice of plain white or pinstripe pants and will wear a black hat with an orange bill and an orange power T.

Vols on Television

 In its first year under head coach Dave Serrano, the Tennessee baseball team will be featured on television at least 12 times during the 2012 campaign, including two appearances on ESPNU.

 Led by a career-high seven strong innings on the mound from Zack Godley, Tennessee defeated No. 16 Texas, 5-4, at Minute Maid Park in the Houston College Classic on March 3.  The win marked UT’s first over a ranked squad since it swept a doubleheader from then No. 15 Vanderbilt in Knoxville on April 10, 2010.

It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Playing the Best

Vols Hook Horns Deep in Heart of Texas

 The Vols took that saying a little too literally on Tuesday, Feb. 21, when they played a 13-inning, four hour, 48-minute contest, the longest in school history, against Western Kentucky.  In that game, UT was down to its last strike on two occasions, rallying from a run down in both the ninth and 11th innings.  The game broke the previous school record of four hours, 30 minutes set against Morehead State on Feb. 26, 1989.  The 13-inning game was the longest (by innings) for the Vols since it played 13 against Arkansas on May 26, 2004, in the SEC Tournament.

Record-Setting Crowd

 Tennessee set a school record for the highest-attended home opener when 2,812 fans were on hand to witness the start of the Dave Serrano era on Feb. 17.  Highest Attended Home Openers Attendance Opponent 2,812 Northern Illinois 2,753 Louisville 2,345 Milwaukee

Steckenrider Named SEC POTW

Date 2/17/2012 2/25/1995 2/18/2011

 According to the BoydsWorld.com 2012 preseason strength of schedule rankings, Tennessee is set to play the 11th-toughest slate in the nation this year and third-hardest among SEC schools.  2012 Toughest Schedule (BoydsWorld.com) 1.

All the New Faces

 In addition to an entirely new coaching staff, the Vols have also welcomed a grand total of 18 newcomers to the squad as well. The revamped UT roster actually features more new players than returning (16).  The group of first-year Vols is comprised of 13 true freshmen, four junior college players and one transfer from a four-year school. There are four outfielders, five infielders, one catcher and eight pitchers, including six right-handers and two southpaws. 2012 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes


Good Bloodlines

 Tennessee junior Zach Luther, a transfer infielder from Fullerton Junior College, is the son of former NFL quarterback Ed Luther. He played six seasons in the NFL, mostly withthe San Diego Chargers, and amassed nearly 3,200 career passing yards before spending the 1985 season as a quarterback for the USFL’s Jacksonville Bulls.  Vol freshman right-handed pitcher Eric Martin is the son of former Tennessee swimmer Kent Martin, who was a five-time SEC champion and was a member of the 1978 national champion swim team.

Vols Not Fazed by SEC Coaches Poll

 The Southeastern Conference released its annual preseason coaches’ poll with Tennessee projected to finish sixth in the Eastern Division. While not the most ideal place to start the season, Serrano and his staff just see it as another opportunity and another challenge to overcome. “We want to prove it on the field,” Serrano said. “You look at all the polls around the country, the Baseball America’s and all that, that’s someone’s opinion. The game is still played on the field. We get that opportunity 30 times in the SEC and 55 times over the course of the year. My approach and my coaching staff’s approach this year is every day that we suit up in a uniform, we get the opportunity to be the best team on the field that day.

Serrano to Coach USA Collegiate National Team

 Tennessee head coach Dave Serrano will don the red, white and blue for the second time in his career this summer when he will serve as the manager of the 2012 Team USA Collegiate National Team. He previously served as the team’s pitching coach in 2010.  Joining Serrano on the 2012 Collegiate National Team staff will be Oregon head coach George Horton, Loyola Marymount head coach Jason Gill and Grand Canyon head coach Andy Stankiewicz.  An announcement will be made prior to the end

of the year and details will be available on www.USABaseball.com. In 2011, the Collegiate team finished with an 11-2-1 record, and its season was highlighted by a 3-1-1 series win over Japan in the two counties’ bi-annual collegiate all-star friendship series.

Renovations Continue at Lindsey Nelson Stadium

 Tennessee fans will notice a number of changes to Lindsey Nelson Stadium when they return for the first time in 2012. The most noticeable will be the new black padded wall in the outfield designed to provide more protection for players and create a cleaner, more simple look. In conjunction, the batter’s eye has been painted black as well. Another ad-

dition at LNS is the new playground on top of the batting cages down the right-field line for young Vol fans to enjoy during the game.

Johnson Sets Example for Maddox

 Tennessee freshman second baseman Will Maddox will look to follow the example set this fall by a fellow first-year Vol and Gainesville High School graduate, A.J. Johnson. Maddox’s former prep classmate was named a freshman All-American by five different publications, including the Football Writers Association of America, Yahoo! Sports, Phil Steele, The Sporting News and FoxSports, after racking up 80 tackles for the Vol football team as its starting weakside linebacker.

 HEAD COACHING DEBUTS  The 24th head coach in Tennessee history, Dave Serrano became the 14th to win his managerial debut in the Orange and White. In the 103-year history of the Vol program with a 7-1 victory over Northern Illinois on Feb. 17. Head Coach
