AUSTIN PEAY Tennessee leads the all-time series against Austin Peay, 17-3, including a 15-3 mark in Knoxville. The Vols traveled to Clarksville for the first time last season, winning 5-3, behind a 3-for-4, two RBI performance by Khayyan Norfork. Ethan Bennett also drove in two runs in the contest. TENNESSEE TIDBITS Tennessee ranked 51st in the most recent NCAA RPI with wins over No. 5 Kentucky, No. 8 South Carolina and No. 1 Florida. The Tennessee bullpen has an ERA of 1.54 over its last 17 games (14 ER in 81.2 IP), including 11.1 shutout innings in its sweep over Alabama. During the run, eight pitchers have com- bined to strike out 66 and hold opposing hitters to a .213 average. In 16 appearances out of the bullpen, junior RHP Nick Blount has a 0.82 ERA (2 ER) over 22.0 innings of work. During that time, he has struck out 15 and walked just four. He is 10-for- 10 in save opportunities, including a remarkable seven in seven straight games from March 27-April 6. As a starter, he had an ERA of 6.45 over 22.1 innings. Helping Blount anchor the back-end of the bullpen has been fellow junior RHP Drew Steckenrider. In a team-high 17 relief appearances, he has a 1.19 ERA (5 ER) over 37.2 innings. He is averaging 12.42 strikeouts per nine innings (52 total) and is holding opposing hitters to a miniscule .146 batting average (18 hits). In three starts, he was 1-1 with a 3.48 ERA. With a double in the third inning against Alabama on March 30, UT senior Zach Osborne became just the 15th player in school history to record 200+ hits. He currently has 213 which places him eight out of the top 10 (221 - Jeff Christensen). With 531 career defensive assists, Osborne has already broken the school record previously set by fellow Louisville native and bearer of the number two UT jersey Chris Burke (524).

  • Page 32012 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes

    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. Im 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 Tennessees 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

    YEAR-BY-YEAR COACHING RECORD

    Following a nationwide search, Dave Serranos 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 fam-ily 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 Serranos 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 Tourna-ment 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 impec-cable 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 Garridos 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, serv-ing as the pitching coach for Bill Kinnebergs 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 bachelors 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.

    IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME... It hasnt taken long for fans in Knoxville to buy in to Coach Serrano and the Vols. Tennessee has already had 10 home crowds of 2,000+, which is four more than it had all of last season. The UT-Florida series saw 9,516 fans click the

    turnstiles at Lindsey Nelson Stadium, making it the second-highest attended series in school history. Only the 1994 series against the Gators has been bet-ter, as it had a total of 11,280 fans on hand. Tennessee set a school record for the highest-at-

    tended home opener when 2,812 fans were on hand to witness the start of the Dave Serrano era on Feb. 17.

    20 IN A HURRY The Vols needed just 30 games to reach 20 wins

    this season, their fastest path to that mark since go-ing 20-8 to open the 2005 campaign, which resulted in a trip to the College World Series.

    MR. WIZARD Senior shortstop Zach Osborne has been a de-

    fensive wizard for Tennessee this season, having committed just three errors in the first 40 games for a fielding percentage of .985. With a 4-6-3 double play at Mississippi State on

    April 19, Osborne broke the UT career mark for defen-sive assists previously set at 524 by fellow Louisville native and bearer of the number two Tennessee jersey Chris Burke. Osbornes total currently stands at 531. Osborne had a streak of 80 consecutive defensive

    chances without a miscue snapped on March 28 vs. Mississippi Valley State. Among SEC shortstops with at least 30 starts at

    the position in 2012, Osborne currently sports the highest fielding percentage (.985) and is tied for the fewest errors (3). Top Defensive SEC Shortstops (min. 30 starts)

    OSBORNE THE IRONMAN The only four-year starter on the UT roster, se-

    nior 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 201 games in his collegiate career, push-ing him past fellow Louisville native Chris Burke, for-mer teammate Josh Liles, Brandon Hopkins and UT legend Todd Helton into seventh in school history.

    SAVING THE DAY After opening the year in the starting rotation,

    junior Nick Blount has found a new home in the UT bullpen, taking complete control of the closer role. Blount switched roles with sophomore Nick

    Williams, who became a starter, on March 18. Since then, all he has done is record 10 saves in 10 save opportunities, including seven in seven consecutive games and two in one day. Blount became the first pitcher in Tennessee his-

    tory to record seven saves in seven straight games as he did so March 27-April 6, with two against MVSU, three versus Alabama and one against both Memphis and South Carolina His last two against the Tide both came on the same day as he helped close out UTs sweep. Blount has rocketed up both the UT single-

    season and career saves charts, already placing third and fourth, respectively. He also ranks in a tie for eighth in school history with 59 appearances. Tennessee Career Saves

    TAKING THEIR DOSES With Tennessee batters having been hit by a

    pitch 71 times this season, they have already sur-passed their total of 58 for the entire 2011 campaign (54 games). The Vols currently rank seventh in the NCAA in hit by pitch.

    LAYIN' IT DOWN For someone who has no recollection of ever

    laying down a sac bunt until his freshman year of college, Chris Fritts sure has figured it out. The junior outfielder currently leads the SEC with 10 sac bunts. As a team, Tennessee ranks fourth in the SEC

    with 39 sac bunts. Auburn is first with 43.

    RISING TO THE CHALLENGE Tennessee has defeated five ranked teams this season, downing No. 16 Texas, No. 2 Kentucky, No. 19 Georgia, No. 10 South Carolina and No. 4 Florida. The common denominator in three of those con-tests was UT starting pitcher Zack Godley who start-ed against the Longhorns, Wildcats and Gamecocks, posting a 2-0 record, a 2.61 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 20.2 IP in those games.

    For the year, Godley is now 4-2 with a 3.52 ERA in a team-leading 64.0 innings, spanning 10 starts. He has struck out 49 and walked just 16 while holding opposing hitters to a .249 batting average.

    WHATEVER IT TAKES... 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

    Tennessee has already had eight innings in which it has scored at least one run without the benefit of even a single hit this season, totaling 13 runs in those frames. The Vols accomplished the feat twice in one game against Mississippi Valley State on March 27, scoring three runs in those two frames.

    HAVE A MONTH BUDDY After going just 1-for-13 in the month of Feb-

    ruary, senior Davis Morgan found another gear in March, hitting .390 (23-for-59) with three doubles, a home run and 11 RBIs over 18 games. Morgan hit safely in 14 of those 18 games, re-

    cording six multi-hit contests. He also hit .393 (11-for-28) with runners on base, including a .400 mark (6-for-15) with runners in scoring position and was 11-for-21 (.524) with two outs.

    WHEREVER I WIND UP Former Vol and current New York Mets pitcher

    R.A. Dickeys memoir, entitled Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball, officially went on sale Thursday, March 29. In it, he details a difficult childhood and describes his long journey in Major League Baseball. Dickey became the 18th person inducted into

    the Tennessee Baseball Hall of Fame at the programs annual preseason banquet, held this year on Jan. 18.

    WILLIAMS GETS THE NOD The teams closer for much of his short career,

    sophomore Nick Williams has grabbed hold of a role in the starting rotation. He opened his stint as a start-er with 13.2 consecutive shutout innings, spanning his first two starts and part of his third. In his seven starts, he has a 3.41 ERA with 18 strikeouts and 20 hits allowed (.202 opponent BA).

    VOLS IN THE PROS With the recent start of the 2012 MLB campaign,

    five former Vols were named to the Opening Day ros-ter for a Major League ball club. Vols on Opening Day MLB Rosters

    Notes on the Vols...

  • Page 52012 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes

    300 AND COUNTING... 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 Ath-ens. Serranos lifetime record now stands at 311-157-1 (.664) in eight seasons as a Division I head coach.

    SERRANO ALREADY MAKING HISTORY Head Coach Dave Serrano helped lead the Vols

    to the second-best start in school history, as they tal-lied 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

    GODLEY DOWNS CATS, EARNS PITCH-ER OF THE WEEK HONORS After tossing eight strong innings to lead Ten-

    nessee to a 4-1 victory over No. 2 Kentucky on Fri-day, March 23, snapping the Wildcats 22-game win-ning streak and handing them their first loss of the season, junior right-hander Zack Godley was named the SEC Pitcher of the Week, CB360 Primetime Per-former of the Week and the College Baseball Insider Southeast Region Pitcher of the Week. Godley became just the 14th Volunteer pitch-

    er to earn the SEC 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 in-nings. After yielding a first-inning run, he retired 21 of the final 25 batters that he faced and didnt allow anyone past first base over the next seven frames.

    VOLS RETURN TO HOUSTON COLLEGE CLASSIC 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 bounc-ing 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 Hous-ton College Classic on March 3. The win marked UTs 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 Serranos third career victory, first at Tennessee, over his former head coach Augie Garrido. Serrano made 15 appearances as part of Garridos pitching staff at Cal State Fullerton in 1986. En route to the programs first College World Se-

    ries berth, Serranos UC-Irvine squad also defeated Texas twice in the Round Rock Regional in the 2007 NCAA Tournament.

    ROOF OVER UTS HEAD In the 103-year history of the Tennessee base-

    ball 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, Tennes-

    see is 3-6 at Minute Maid Park with a pair of wins over Texas and and another over Oklahoma State.

    ITS 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 his-tory, 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 in-

    nings) for the Vols since it played 13 against Arkan-sas on May 26, 2004, in the SEC Tournament.

    STECKENRIDER NAMED SEC POTW Junior Drew Steckenrider got the season off to

    a scalding start, earning the first SEC Player of the Week honor of the season. Hitting out of the cleanup spot, the 6-5 switch-

    hitting junior reached base 11 times in 14 plate ap-pearances, going 5-for-8 (.625) with a pair of doubles and his second career home run. He also served as the teams 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.

  • Page 6 2012 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes

    VOLS UNVEIL NEW UNIS Tennessee unveiled a new set of uniforms de-

    signed 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 teams 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 re-turning (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 infield-

    er 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 USFLs 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 mem-ber of the 1978 national champion swim team.

    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 cam-paign, including two appearances on ESPNU.

    VOLS NOT FAZED BY SEC POLL The Southeastern Conference released its annu-

    al 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 Americas and all that, thats someones 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 staffs 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 COLLE-GIATE NATIONAL TEAM Tennessee head coach Dave Serrano will don

    the red, white and blue for the second time in his ca-reer this summer when he will serve as the manager of the 2012 Team USA Collegiate National Team. He previously served as the teams pitching coach in 2010. Joining Serrano on the 2012 Collegiate National

    Team staff will be Oregon head coach George Hor-ton, Loyola Marymount head coach Jason Gill and Grand Canyon head coach Andy Stankiewicz. 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.

    PLAYING THE BEST According to the BoydsWorld.com 2012 pre-

    season 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 NCAA RATINGS PERCENTAGE INDEXRENOVATIONS 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 pro-tection for players and create a cleaner, more simple look. In conjunction, the batters eye has been painted black as well. Another addi-tion 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. John-son. Maddoxs former prep classmate was named a freshman All-American by five dif-ferent 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.
