KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Former Tennessee and Colorado Rockies star Todd Helton said he hoped to bring a Major League mentality to the Vols.
That meant taking each pitch and every plate appearance more personal under coach Dave Serrano, and that certainly should not be a problem this weekend at Lindsey Nelson Stadium in Knoxville.
The Vols (14-8, 0-6) look to get their first SEC win of the season against Georgia (11-15, 1-5) on the heels of a 6-0 Tuesday win over Tennessee Tech.
