Tennessee Volunteers Baseball TicketsLindsey Nelson Stadium is where fans get to enjoy both "Rocky Top" and "Centerfield" over the public address system as the Tennessee Volunteers baseball team takes on many of the nation’s best teams. UT has had its share of honors, most notably having played in the College World Series on four occasions. The team has also produced several major leaguers over the years. One who’s currently playing in MLB is Detroit Tigers left fielder Christin Stewart. A couple of former major leaguers with Tennessee ties are Todd Helton and Luke Hochevar. Regardless of what lies in the future for UT’s current squad, these players are focused on the present, and all of them have a goal of bringing Tennessee back to the College World Series. If you’re planning to come out to a game and root them on, make sure to first pull that orange shirt out of your closet. StubHub is your source for Tennessee Volunteers baseball tickets.
