UT football has an almanac, baseball needs one too. Your original question regarding #3 on the 1951 team is valid and it should be available to us. I wanna know too. I’ll keep looking, but ya might try Vol baseball Twitter too. They can get at the answer super quick.
Baseball Volmanac is part of the baseball record book. It has a list of all-time jersey numbers but none earlier than 1965.

B. B. Hopkins was on the 1951 team, here's a picture of him from 1953. Looks to me he's wearing 3. A two time all SEC and All American, believe he's your guy.

I couldn’t find any photos of the 1962 team.
But what makes that season special, it was Cafego’s last as the baseball coach and they ended the season with 9 straight wins, last 5 were over Vandy. In fact CGC retired having won his last 9 over the Commodores. Not too shabby.

Ordered the 1962 -- Wish they had them at the EF website though, Volshop 12 dollar shipping is kind of steep then throw in the sales tax on top of it and then there is a pop up stating a 7-10 day wait for it to ship because of lack of employees
I was hoping EF would carry them as well…. As silly as it sounds, shipping is why I waited on the hat to be released before I bought the jersey. Now, I see the hat isn’t fitted, so I may not get it after all. They look nice, but I really prefer a fitted cap. Especially at that price point.

Also, is that the Power T logo on the ‘62? I didn’t think they were using the Power T yet…. Hopefully, I am mistaken, but if not, that’s a pretty big miss for a company that prides itself on its attention to detail.

yeah it looks close - I thought they used a block T back then -- I got this windbreaker from Mitchell and Ness with the block T on it
