A loss by the baseball Vols ended the University of Tennessee’s athletic season for the 2022-23 academic calendar year Tuesday. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker touch on that in Off The Hook Sports’ Wednesday, June 21 podcast along with a Tennessee Football commitment, Nick Saban and Josh Heupel.
Tennessee Baseball loses to LSU in CWS
In a College World Series rematch with the LSU Tigers Tuesday night, Tennessee Baseball was eliminated with a 5-0 loss.
