TEAM NOTES AND STORYLINES uThroughout the offseason, the Vols have been solely focused on doing what is needed to improve daily, using the acronym W.I.N. (What's Important Now) and the phrase, 'Don't count down the days, make the days count,' as means of motivation. uWith the arrival of new assistant coach and baserunning guru Ash Lawson and the new bat standards, UT has changed its offensive philosophy a bit. Instead of waiting for the longball, the Vols should be much more aggressive on the basepaths this season. uTennessee's pitching depth should be much improved this season with the addition of eight new pitchers to the staff and seven returners. The junior college quartet of Jerod Peper, Levi Dean, T.J. Thornton and Zack Godley, should provide an immediate impact. uThe Vols return three-fourths of their starting infield, which played a large role in helping the team finish 24th in the nation at .974 in 2010. The only addition, first baseman Josh Liles, should improve the overall athleticism of the infield as well. INDIVIDUAL NOTES AND STORYLINES uThe Vols have two players trying their hands at a new position this season in senior Josh Liles and junior Matt Ramsey. Liles will move from centerfield to first base, while Ramsey will spend time catching after playing the outfield and designated hitter last season. Ramsey will also serve as the team's closer. uFreshman Andrew Toles will look to make an immediate impact as Tennessee's starting centerfielder. The speedy rookie was drafted in the fourth round last June by the Florida Marlins. He is the son of former Vol wide receiver Alvin Toles and the nephew of former UT running back Johnnie Jones.

TODD RALEIGH

Turn up the VOLume

Fourth Season Western Carolina, 1991 Record at UT: 83-84 (.497) Career Record: 340-293 (.537) Tennessee head coach Todd Raleigh is in his fourth season at Rocky Top after guiding his alma mater, Western Carolina, for eight seasons. While at UT, Raleigh has had 12 players drafted, including two in 2008 and five more in both 2009 and 2010, and two more sign free-agent contracts following the completion of their eligibility. Nine of those players were drafted in the top-20 rounds, highlighted by 2009 first-round selection Kentrail Davis. In 19 seasons as a collegiate coach, Raleigh has now produced a total of 45 MLB draft picks and 63 professional players. Under Raleigh's guidance, the Vols have steadily moved up in the NCAA RPI in each of the last three seasons, improving from 91 in 2008 to 58 in 2009 and 45 in 2010. Over the past two seasons, Raleigh’s squads have belted out 168 round-trippers (87 in 2009, 81 in 2010), good for the second-most prolific two-year period in school history. 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 his 19 seasons as a collegiate assistant or head coach, Raleigh’s teams have finished third or better in their respective league 12 times (63 percent). Raleigh and his wife, Stephanie, have four children: Caleb John “Cal” (13), Emma Grace (11), Carley Elizabeth (4) and Todd Anthony “T” (1).

TODD RALEIGH NOTES u The Vols have steadily moved up in the NCAA RPI in each of the last three seasons, improving from 91 in 2008 to 58 in 2009 and 45 in 2010. u Over the past two seasons, Raleigh’s squads have belted out 168 round-trippers (87 in 2009, 81 in 2010), good for the second-most prolific two-year period in school history. u The Vols have been one of the best defensive teams in the nation the past two seasons, posting fielding percentages of .972 and .974 in 2009 and 2010, respectively. 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 avg. (.323). u Under Raleigh’s guidance in 2009, 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.

““There is not another person that puts higher expectations on myself and this program than I do,” UT Head Coach Todd Raleigh said. “There is no doubt in my mind that we have this program headed in the right direction, especially this season. Everyone is on the same page in terms of coming to work every single day with the mindset of getting better. In the long run, that is really the only thing we can control.” — Head Coach Todd Raleigh “Since I got here in the fall of 2007, we have improved every aspect of this program, from the facilities, to the Academic Progress Rate to the NCAA RPI. The last piece of the puzzle is putting it all together on the field and getting to the postseason. Has it happened as fast as we would have liked? Most certainly not. I understand the expectations of our fans, and this may sound odd, but I like the fact that some of them aren’t too happy right now. I love that they expect greatness, just like I do. Have there been some extenuating circumstances that have slowed us down a little? Sure, but our goal from day one has been to build a program, not a team. I have no doubt that that stuff is in the past and we are moving forward. We are going to be a national power, no question about that. I am confident that we are headed in the right direction and cannot wait to get this season started.” — Head Coach Todd Raleigh “Ash brings a lot of energy and great ideas to our staff, especially with his insight on base running. It is going to be a critical year in that area because of all of the bat changes and he has done a tremendous job revamping our efforts on that part of the game. We stole a lot of bases last year, but I think we are going to step it up another level this season and put a lot of pressure on opposing teams.” — Head Coach Todd Raleigh “We have been working on a lot of small ball stuff. We don't have as many power guys, so we have to get back to the basics. A lot of bunting, base running and just small ball stuff. It's not a traditional team like we have had in the past but we are getting use to it. Top to bottom, it's just a group of scrappy guys. We are going to score runs in many different ways and put pressure on the other team to make mistakes." — Senior First Baseman Josh Liles “Our attitude is one of high intensity. That is one thing that we have focused on in our practices and scrimmages this fall and leading up to the spring. The chemisty on this team is definitely improved over what it has been in the last couple of years. We have a close-knit group and a group of seniors to lead us. We've set the bar high from the very beginning. The SEC Tournament is a bare minimum." — Junior Catcher/Closer Matt Ramsey

NOTEWORTHY ROCKY TOP BLOODLINES Freshman centerfielder Andrew Toles was born to bleed orange. A fourth-round selection by the Florida Marlins last June, Toles decded to put his professional career on hold in order to attend the same school where his father and uncle both excelled on the gridiron. His father, Alvin, was a hard-hitting linebacker at Tennessee (1981-84) before being drafted in the first round of the 1985 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints. His uncle, Johnnie Jones, also is the fourth-leading rusher in Tennessee history (82-84) and spent time with the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL and the Hamilton TigerCats in the CFL. His mother, Vicky, meanwhile, played basketball at the University of New Orleans, and his sister, Morgan plays basketball at Auburn. NEW FACES IN THE CROWD The Volunteers return 17 players, including seven starters, from last year's squad which finished with a record of 30-26. Joining them is a talented group of 14 newcomers, headlined by freshman Andrew Toles, a fourth-round pick by the Florida Marlins in the 2010 MLB FirstYear Player Draft, and last year's Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year, Ethan Bennett from Farragut High School. NEW FACES ON THE COACHING STAFF In addition to the 14 new players, Tennessee also welcomes a pair of new coaches in assistant coach Ash Lawson and volunteer assistant Barrett Shaft. A former head coach at Tennessee Wesleyan, Lawson comes to Rocky Top from the San Diego Padres for whom he was a regional crosschecker. He was named the Padres' Scout of the Year in 2006. Shaft is in his first season as a volunteer assistant after serving as a manager for the team last year. He is a 2008 graduate of Western Carolina. HOMEGROWN TALENT PLENTIFUL ON TENNESSEE ROSTER Tennessee’s roster includes 12 players from the state of Tennessee (38.7 percent of the

roster). Five Vols are from Knox County and one is from Sevier County (Seymour), while two others hail from West Tennessee and four are from Middle Tennessee. Four of the local players hail from Farragut High School, including senior Rob Catapano, junior Matt Ramsey and freshmen Ethan Bennett and Nick Williams. Bennett was named a 2010 Louisville Slugger High School All American, Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year and TBCA Class AAA Player of the Year after setting a state single-season record with 27 home runs. He also hit .420 with 73 RBIs and scored 57 runs and set the national record for home runs in consecutive games, belting 16 during a 10-game stretch in April. Williams also played a big role in leading Farragut to three straight state titles with Bennett, going 19-0 with 137 strikeouts and an 0.85 ERA during his three seasons on the varsity squad. THE COLOR ORANGE ESPN is set to air a feature-length documentary on former two-sport Tennessee star Condredge Holloway, entitled "The Color Orange," this Sunday at 8 p.m. The documentary, produced and directed by country music star Kenny Chesney, details Holloway's collegiate career as the first black quarterback in the SEC. In addition to his exploits on the gridiron, he also served as the starting shortstop at UT, garnering first-team All-America recognition in 1975 after hitting .396 with 20 RBIs and two home runs. VOLUNTEERS ON THE TUBE The University of Tennessee baseball team will be featured on national television six times during the 2011 regular season as it added four more broadcasts on Friday with the announcement of the official Southeastern Conference television package, the second under the league's landmark 15-year agreement with ESPN. The Volunteers will be one of two squads to be featured twice on ESPNU's groundbreak-

Both contests will be televised nationally on ESPNU which is now available in 73 million homes. In addition to the two Thursday night games on ESPNU, the Volunteers will also take to the airwaves on April 1 and 2 at Florida, April 30 at Vanderbilt and on May 14 at LSU. All four additional games will air on CSS. All games from the 2011 SEC Tournament will continue to be televised as well, with the championship game airing again nationally on ESPN2. Including SEC Tournament games, a total of 68 SEC baseball broadcasts will air in 2011 as part of the official SEC package. The television package is derived from broadcasts on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, FSN, SportSouth, CSS and CST. In addition, ESPN3 will also stream most broadcasts live online. SEC schools maintain the rights to air additional games not included in the official SEC package with various television outlets, including official SEC TV partners. More than 50 additional games are set to be broadcast by SEC partners via this means, bringing the total number of SEC baseball games broadcast in 2011 to over 120 games. All games on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will be broadcast in high definition. BASEBALL PARTICIPATES IN LIGHT THE NIGHT WALK, RAISES MORE THAN $5,000 FOR CANCER RESEARCH For the fourth straight year, the University of Tennessee baseball team participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk Thursday evening at Circle Park on the UT campus. Since becoming involved with the event in 2007, the Volunteers have now helped to raise nearly $30,000, including over $5,000 this year, in support of research into the treatment and prevention of cancer.
