Hello all. I’m looking for some advice, tips, tricks, do’s and don’t s about a Tennessee Vols baseball game. My son is 11, and loves baseball. My daughter is soon to be 13 and is starting to look at schools and what not. I’ve been a vols fan all my life, although I’ve never been to Neyland or a baseball game at Knoxville. I’m lookin for 4 tickets preferably together. I’m originally from the west Tennessee area. If there is anyone or anybody that has some advice, or tickets they don’t want, or I could buy that would be extremely helpful, or general where to sit, where to eat, what to do before, and after the game etc etc etc. I work every other weekend so my time is limited and we will be trying to work this in around travel baseball too. Busy busy busy. Thanks for yalls time and help in making this a special trip.

Ok. Thank you. I was looking at the late March/April time frame.
Basically was going to make it a weekend type deal. Maybe go a baseball game Friday and Saturday. Hoping to tour Neyland Stadium on Saturday if that’s available on the weekend. Want my kids to enjoy theirselves and learn a little about the school, college sports, etc etc etc. I’ve been to Knoxville but it’s been 25 years ago or more I guess. I’m sure it’s a changed a lot and probably unrecognizable from what I remember. I do remember seeing the tower from the worlds fair the last time I was there. Good to see it’s still there. Based off the pictures and research I been doing.

OldTimer offers good advice as to a way to get tickets. That thread will start to have posters once we get closer to the season. I used it several times last year. As to Neyland tours, I have no idea. I did look on UT’s website. Currently, it says no tours are being offered but gives an email address for inquiries - utevents@utk.edu. Incidentally, your time frame is during the conference games portion of the schedule. If you can get tickets, it will be a truly awesome experience! Nothing better in college baseball than the BaseVols! Good luck!

Thank you. Hopefully we can score some decent tickets and have a great little family getaway.
Welcome to the board and happy Thanksgiving! OT and other posters are spot on. As it gets closer to the season tickets become available. They’re aren’t really any bad seats at LNS and the SEC portion of the schedule will be packed. I definitely back checking here first, people here just want Orange in the seats.

Off the top of the head, I’m not sure when the football spring game is, not sure if we have a home baseball series that weekend, but that seems to fit your criteria.

The worst case scenario…show up, pay the scalpers and enjoy. Good luck and post often.

GBO!!!

Thanks for the replies. I hope I don’t have to go the scalper route honestly. I didn’t even think anything of the spring game, that would be awesome to see baseball and the spring game all in the same weekend. I will look into those dates more. Thanks. Keep the ideas and information coming fellas. I need all the help I can get.
