2012 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes


DAVE SERRANO HEAD COACH

12

First Season at Tennessee Overall Record: 293-139-1 (.677) 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... 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.

Steckenrider Named SEC POTW

 Junior Drew Steckenrider got the season off to a scalding start, putting his enormous talent on display both offensively and on the mound in UT’s sweep over Northern Illinois en route to earning the first SEC Player of the Week honor of the season.  Hitting out of the cleanup spot, the 6-5 switchhitting junior reached base 11 times in 14 plate appearances, going 5-for-8 (.625) with a pair of doubles and his second career home run, in addition to walking four times, being hit by a pitch twice, stealing the first base of his career, scoring a team-high five runs and driving in two more.  The Lawrenceville, Ga., native 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.

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 started 165 games in his collegiate career, placing him just 21 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 -- 165 Zach Osborne

 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.

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.

 Tennessee will make its third appearance in the Houston College Classic when it makes the trek to the Lone Star State, March 2-4. The Vols will play Houston, Texas and Rice in the three-day competition held at the home of the Houston Astros, Minute Maid Park. The Vols previously participated in the event in both 2005 and 2008.

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.

Chris 1 and Chris 2

 A pair of outfielders named Chris led the way for the Vols offensively against Northern Illinois last weekend in junior Chris Fritts and senior Chris Pierce.  In Saturday’s doubleheader, Fritts had a combined seven RBIs, including a career high six in the first game of the day. His seven RBIs on the day marked exactly half of his entire total from the 2011 season.  Fellow outfielder senior Chris Pierce also had seven RBIs on the weekend, giving him three more than he had in 37 games last year.

 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
