KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) – The Tennessee baseball season may not have ended in Omaha as the team had hoped, but the All-American honors continue to roll in for a handful of Volunteers.
On Friday, D1Baseball.com listed four members of the Big Orange on their All-American rosters.
Sophomore hurler Chase Dollander received his fifth First-Team All-American honor, which puts him in very rare Rocky Top company. Only four other players – Todd Helton (1995), Jeff Pickler (1998), Chris Burke (2001) and Luke Hochevar (2005) – have earned at least five national First Team nods.
Dollander was an undefeated 10-0 on the year with a 2.39 ERA.
Chase Burns garnered his fourth All-American nomination, making him and former Volunteer pitcher R.A. Dickey the only players in program history with four All-American awards as a freshman.
Senior Trey Lipscomb and junior Drew Gilbert landed on the outlet’s Third Team All-American roster.
Tennessee has now had nine players earn All-American honors, which nearly doubles the previous program record of five All-Americans set just last season.
