Vols Baseball 2021 Schedule Announced (Updated 5/21)

Tennessee baseball releases their schedule while Vols prepare for opening day next month.

While the 2020 Tennessee baseball season was a short one due to the coronavirus, the Vols showed flashes of dominance during their brief time on the field. Tennessee ended the season 15-2 and defeated then No. 1 Texas Tech. Now, the Vols are looking to carry that success into the 2021 campaign.

Tennessee will have to do it without three MLB draftees from last year’s team: pitcher Garrett Crochet (White Sox) and outfielders Alerick Soularie (Twins) and Zach Daniels (Astros). The team may turn to infielder Max Ferguson and catcher Connor Pavolony. Both Furgeson and Pavolony were named to D1Baseball’s Preseason All-America Teams, Furgeson on the first team and Pavolony on the second team.

Baseball America ranked Tennessee nineteenth in their preseason rankings. They are eighth among SEC schools and currently sit behind Florida, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, LSU, Arkansas, and South Carolina.

The SEC is allowing schools to play a standard baseball schedule, featuring a non-conference slate of games, amid the pandemic. Tennessee announced their SEC schedule last Tuesday. Here is the current schedule for the Vols:
