The Tennessee Volunteers baseball team represents the University of Tennessee in NCAA Division I college baseball. Along with most other Tennessee athletic teams, the baseball team participates in the Eastern division of the Southeastern Conference. The Volunteers play all on-campus home games at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

Stadium[edit]

The Volunteers currently play home games at Robert M. Lindsay Field at Lindsey Nelson Stadium. The facility is undergoing extensive renovations at this time.

Lindsey Nelson Stadium was constructed between 1992 and 1993 seasons at the site of the old facility called Lower Hudson Field. The program had played in past in various locations including Lower Hudson Field and Shields-Watkins Field.

Lindsey Nelson was a Hall of Fame Broadcaster, Tennessee native and university alumnus best known for his work with the University of Tennessee, University of Notre Dame. the New York Mets, San Francisco Giants, National Football League and the annual Cotton Bowl Classic.[1]

The playing field was named for Maryville, Tennessee native Robert M. Lindsay in 2007 after a $2 million athletic departmentt contribution by Mr. Lindsay. Mr. Lindsay's father Russ Lindsay played baseball at the University of Tennessee from 1913 to 1916.[2]

The record attendance at Lindsey Nelson stadium is 5,086 for a NCAA Regional championship game against Oklahoma State University on May 28, 1995.[1]

Head coaches[edit]

In 2011, after four poor seasons as Head Coach, Todd Raleigh was dismissed. On June 16, 2011 Dave Serrano was officially introduced as the Vols 24th head baseball coach. Serrano returns to the program where he started his first Division I job as an assistant coach between 1995 and 1996. Serrano's first coaching trip to Omaha came with the Vols in 1995 featuring Todd Helton and R.A. Dickey. He is one of only 11 coaches to take two different baseball programs to the College World Series and has a career record of 289-139-1 in seven seasons as a Division I coach.
