Weather Forecast Tuesday Wednesday

Tennessee Tidbits...

 Tennessee currently ranks 15th in the nation with 41 batters PM T-Storms Sunny having reached on a hit by pitch. Freshman Jared Allen leads the 79° | 60° | 40% 77° | 56° | 0% way, having taken eight doses, which ranks 53rd in the nation individually.  Over the weekend, the Tennessee pitching staff held No. 2 Kentucky to a .211 batting average and just five extra-base hits. The Wildcats entered the weekend leading the SEC in batting average, on-base percentage hits, doubles, and RBIs and was second in slugging percentage and home runs.  Since moving to the starting rotation last week at Georgia, sophomore Nick Williams has now thrown 10.2 shutout innings, striking out eight and yielding just three hits as opposing batters are hitting just .091 off of him. On Sunday, he faced off against his brother, Kentucky catcher Michael Williams, for the second time in his career. After striking him out in their only matchup last season, he was touched for a single in the first at-bat against his sibling on Sunday before getting him to foul out behind the plate in the second.

Godley Tabbed SEC Pitcher of the Week

 After tossing eight strong innings to lead Tennessee to a 4-1 victory over No. 2 Kentucky on Friday night, snapping the Wildcats’ 22-game winning streak and handing them their first loss of the season, junior righthander Zack Godley was named the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week.  Godley is just the 14th Volunteer pitcher to earn the honors, joining the likes of R.A. Dickey, Todd Helton and Luke Hochevar, and just the third to do so since the 2007 campaign with the last player being Bryan Morgado in 2010.  In the win over Kentucky, Godley held the top-hitting team in the SEC to just one run on three hits and struck out four over a career-high tying 8.0 innings. After yielding a first-inning run, he retired 21 of the final 25 batters that he faced and didn’t allow anyone past first base over the next seven frames.  Godley is now 4-1 on the year with a 2.92 ERA in a team-leading 37.0 innings, spanning six starts. He has struck out 30 and walked just six while holding opposing hitters to a .221 batting average.

2012 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes


DAVE SERRANO HEAD COACH

12

First Season at Tennessee Overall Record: 302-149-1 (.668) 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... Have a Month Buddy

 After going just 1-for-13 in the month of February, senior Davis Morgan has found another gear offensively, as he is hitting .381 (16-for-42) in March.  Since the turn of the calendar, Morgan has hit safely in 11 of 14 games, recording eight RBIs. He is also hitting .421 (8-for-19) with runners on base, including a .500 mark (5-for-10) with runners in scoring position and is 9-for-17 (.529) with two outs.

Williams Gets the Nod

 The Vols have been searching for a Sunday starter all season and hope to have found one in sophomore Nick Williams. The team’s closer for much of his short career, Williams has thrown 10.2 shutout innings, striking out eight and yielding just three hits, over the first two starts of his career, including 6.0 shutout innings at Georgia and 4.2 vs. No. 2 Kentucky.

 Tennessee will take runs any way it can get them. So far this season, the Vols have already scored a run 20 different ways.  How the Vols Have Scored How Runs How Runs Balk 5 Fielding Error 4 Walk 1 Wild Pitch 2 Hit By Pitch 2 Groundout 7 Infield Single 5 Double Play 2 Bunt Single 1 Safety Squeeze 4 Single 22 Suicide Squeeze 1 Double 14 Fielder’s Choice 5 Triple 4 Sacrifice Fly 10 Home Run 14 Passed Ball on K 1 Stolen Base 1 TOTAL 110 Throwing Error 5

 Tennessee has already had six innings in which it has scored at least one run without the benefit of even a single hit this season, totaling 10 runs in those frames.

 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 184 games in his collegiate career, placing him just two games outside of the top-10 in school history. Years 03-06 93-96 95-98 98-01 98-01 06-09 93-95 99-02 08-11 99-01 09-12

 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. Since returning to the lineup on May 17, 2011 vs. Belmont, Osborne has started his last 20 games.  After spending his entire first year as a Vol in the bullpen, junior Zack Godley has quickly adjusted to his new role in the starting rotation. Through his first Page 4

 Tennessee skipper Dave Serrano picked up his 300th career win and first SEC victory in the Vols’ last contest as they shut out No. 19 Georgia, 3-0, in Athens. Serrano’s lifetime record now stands at 301-1491 (.668) in eight seasons as a Division I head coach.  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.

six starts, he is 4-1 with a 2.92 ERA, 30 strikeouts to just six walks in 37.0 IP and has held opposing hitters to a .221 batting average.  Godley was extremely impressive in outings against No. 16 Texas and ULM, going 7.0 innings to lead the Vols to a 5-4 win over the Longhorns on March 3, before coming back with a career-high 8.0 shutout frames against ULM on March 9, allowing just three hits and striking out 10.  He fired eight strong innings against No. 2 Kentucky on March 23 to lead UT to a 4-1 win and snap the Wildcats’ 22-game winning streak.

 Tennessee 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.

Vols Hook Horns Deep in Heart of Texas

 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.

Pupil Takes Down the Teacher

 When the Vols defeated No. 16 Texas, 5-4, at the Houston College Classic on March 3, it marked Dave Serrano’s third career victory, first at Tennessee, over his former head coach Augie Garrido. 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.

Roof Over UT’s Head

 In the 103-year history of the Tennessee baseball program, the Vols have played 22 games in domes or stadiums with retractable roofs, posting a 12-10 record in those contests.  UT is 4-3 in the Kingdome, playing in the College Baseball Classic in Seattle, Wash., in 1992 and 1994.  The Vols played in the Hormel Foods Classic in the Metrodome in 1996 and 2002, going 5-1 in games played in the Minneapolis, Minn., venue.  Including its three games this season, Tennessee is 3-6 at Minute Maid Park with a pair of wins over Texas and and another over Oklahoma State.

It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint

 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.

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.  2012 Tennessee Television Appearances Date Opponent TV March 2 vs. Houston ESPN3 March 3 vs. Texas Longhorn Network March 4 vs. Rice ESPN3 March 13 Tennessee Tech FSSO/FSTN March 31 Alabama CSS April 4 Memphis FSSO/FSTN April 7 at South Carolina ESPNU April 14 Florida SportSouth April 19 at Mississippi State ESPNU May 5 Vanderbilt CSS May 9 at Memphis SportSouth May 12 at Ole Miss SportSouth

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.

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.

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.

Check out the newest edition of “This Week in Tennessee Baseball,” a weekly series that airs on UTSports. com every Thursday throughout the season by scanning the QR code above. This week’s episode is hosted by redshirt junior left-handed pitcher Hunter Daniel.  The squad is set to travel to Cuba for a five-game series against its national team, July 5-9, before heading to The Netherlands for Honkbal Week in Haarlem, July 13-22.

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 addition 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.

Woody Completes Second Tour in Italy

 For the second time in as many summers, Tennessee baseball athletic trainer Jeff Wood traveled to Italy to assist in the Major League Baseball Academy. The 12-year Vol veteran ventured to Tierrenia on the country’s northwestern Mediterranean coast, near Pisa, where the Italian Olympic Training Center is located. The academy brought together promising European and, in some cases, African baseball players, ages 15-19, for the best in U.S. major league coaching and instruction.
