The Smokey Mountain Collegiate League has exciting news! In just its 3rd year, it will be moving its home site two days a week to the newly renovated Lindsey Nelson Stadium, the proud home of the Vols! Smokey Mountain Collegiate League features 24-28 games a Summer and is designed to allow athletes to work or take Summer classes. The league plays 4 games a week for three days. Lindsey Nelson Stadium will be used Monday and Tuesday night for league play as well as for the Championship! The addition of UT’s field for games will help with rain as the field is artificial turf. It will also help the league provide more of a college baseball setting as well as an excellent experience for the players. Ross Kivett, assistant coach for UT, is excited as he states, “This league will be great for our guys to play in, as they have to stay on campus in the Summer, and it will give them the ability to be able to see live pitching and get to compete in a collegiate environment.” The league is for graduating seniors in high school to upcoming seniors in college. In the first two years, the league has seen 4 teams with the Smokey Mountain Eagles winning both league championships! Registration for 2020 is live and will go until the league is filled. Games will start early in June and run until July 21st.
