KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The fourth-ranked Tennessee Baseball team is anticipating a weekend filled with excitement and sold out crowds at Lindsey Nelson Stadium as the Vols take on top-ranked Arkansas for their final SEC home series of the season.

The series kicks off on Friday with Shirseys on the Seats, presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors. Every seat in the grandstands will include a shirsey featuring either a throwback VFL t-shirt jersey design or the fan-favorite Cream Vols t-shirt jersey. Friday’s pre-game festivities will also feature a Pig Roast and pulled pork sandwich giveaway. The first 350 fans in attendance will receive a voucher for a pulled pork sandwich, while supplies last. Also on Friday night, Vol Nation won’t have to travel to Omaha to see a VFL known for his arm throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

For Sunday’s series finale, pregame ceremonies honoring eight senior Vols are set to begin at approximately 12:30 p.m. Fans are asked to arrive early to help celebrate and honor the careers of these incredible seniors who have helped return Tennessee baseball to national prominence. Fifty fans will be delighted as they enter Sunday’s game and receive a voucher for a free lemonade from the rebranded stand, affectionately called Tony’s Lemonade Stand, which will feature lemonade made with fresh lemons and inspired by Head Coach Tony Vitello’s very own lemonade stand which briefly launched in 2018.
