Vanderbilt Baseball Schedule for the Year 2020
Scouting report: Vanderbilt baseball schedule for 2022 opens Friday with Oklahoma State
Vanderbilt baseball has returned after a long absence. The No. 2 Commodores open the season at Hawkins Field against a notable non-conference opponent in No. 8 Oklahoma State, who will play from Friday through Sunday. All games will be broadcast live on SEC Network+ beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Friday and at 1 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Rather of participating in an early season tournament, Vanderbilt will play the second half of a home-and-home series with the Pokes in Nashville.
Vanderbilt has a 3-1 record against Oklahoma State all-time.
Oklahoma State coach Josh Holliday formerly worked as a recruiting coordinator for the Vanderbilt Commodores from 2010 to 2012, during which time he assisted the Commodores in their first-ever trip in the College World Series. Holliday, the younger brother of former Major League Baseball outfielder Matt Holliday, has been the head coach of the Cowboys since 2013. Since Holliday took over, Oklahoma State has qualified for the NCAA Tournament every year it has been hosted. However, the Cowboys have only advanced to the College World Series once since then, in 2016.
I absolutely appreciate his family,” Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin said of his former assistant.
THE PITCHERS ARE AS FOLLOWS: Vanderbilt baseball coach Tim Corbin has named his team’s starting lineup against Oklahoma State.
Tough two-way player
The Cowboys’ most prominent player is pitcher and designated hitter Justin Campbell, who was chosen to the All-American team in 2021 and was a nominee for the John Olerud two-way player award that year. Campbell made 13 starts with a 2.57 earned run average and 102 strikeouts in 84 innings last season. He had a.398 on-base percentage in his at-bats this season. Campbell is expected to start for the squad on Friday and might get time in the starting lineup as a reliever as well. Vanderbilt is nearing the end of a rotation that is entirely inexperienced.
He was a steady setup man last season.
Carter Holton, a freshman pitcher, will take the mound on Sunday in his first collegiate outing. Vanguard’s most experienced starters from last season, sophomores Patrick Reilly and Christian Little, are not injured and might be eligible to come in and pitch for a few innings.
- Oklahoma State added graduate transfer first baseman Griffin Doersching from Northern Kentucky to their roster over the offseason. Doersching, the champion of the 2019 College Home Run Derby, blasted 20 home runs last season, albeit for the Horizon League’s Daytona State University. Both infielders Nolan McLean and outfielder Caeden Trenkle had at least five home runs in the previous season. Vanderbilt should have a lineup that is loaded with power. Both catchers Dominic Keegan and Carter Young, who both hit double digit home runs in 2021, are back, as is infielder Parker Noland (seven home runs, 15 doubles), utilityman Tate Kolwyck (six home runs), and outfielder Troy LaNeve, who hit six home runs in the previous season (six home runs). Aria Gerson is a sports writer for The Tennessean who focuses on Vanderbilt athletics. For more information, please contact her [email protected] or on Twitter @aria gerson
- Jabari Brown has been named the inaugural recipient of the Maggie Corbin Minority Baseball Apprenticeship at Vanderbilt Athletics, which was established by Maggie and Tim Corbin to increase the number of minority coaches in collegiate baseball. More information can be found at 21st of October, 2021
Commodore duo selected in top 10 of MLB draft
- Vanderbilt student-athletes Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker, both pitchers for the Commodore baseball team, were taken in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft for the 2021 season on Sunday. The Texas Rangers selected Leiter in the second round, while the New York Mets selected Rocker in the tenth round. More information can be found at 12th of July, 2021
VandyBoys gave Commodore Nation a season to remember
- Chancellor Daniel Diermeier, Vice Chancellor for Athletics and University Affairs, and Athletic Director Candice Lee reflect on how the Commodore baseball team’s amazing College World Series run brought the whole Vanderbilt community together at a time of celebration. More information can be found at 1st of July, 2021
Vanderbilt falls to Mississippi State; winner-take-all Game 3 on Wednesday
- With a 13-2 victory against Vanderbilt on Tuesday in the College World Series finals at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Mississippi State forced a decisive third game and forced a deciding third game. The national champion will be determined at 6 p.m. CT on Wednesday, according to the NCAA. ESPN2 will broadcast the game live in its entirety. More information can be found at 30th of June, 2021

In the previous ten CWS finals, we’ve had an all-SEC championship series, which is the third time in that time span. South Carolina defeated Florida on their way to a repeat national title in 2011, and then Florida defeated LSU to win the national championship in 2017. So far, the 2021 season and tournament have proven to be remarkable experiences for everyone involved. Before the opening pitch of the College World Series on Monday, let’s take a short look at the last two teams in college baseball.
MISSISSIPPI STATE: Third time’s a charm?
Photographs from the NCAA The Starkville faithful are beginning to consider Omaha as a second home. The Diamond Dawgs have reached the TD Ameritrade Park postseason for the third consecutive season, and this will be their second trip to the championship series since 2013. To get to the Final Four, Mississippi State has had to grind out every win in order to earn a spot in the tournament’s championship game. Each of their three victories in Omaha came by a single run, including Saturday’s stunning comeback victory over Texas that advanced them to the next round.
- Who’s hot right now: Simsis is blistering hot, although this isn’t surprising given the circumstances.
- To put his domination into perspective, that equates to 15.8 strikeouts per nine innings.
- He’s had two outstanding efforts versus Texas, the first of which was of record-setting proportions, in which he’s pitched 12.1 innings and allowed only three runs while striking out 22 batters.
- It’s the usual suspects on the other side of the plate.
- Jordan has hit six home runs and driven in four runs, while Allen has hit five home runs and driven in four runs.
In the previous two games versus Texas, Logan Tanner has collected three hits and two RBIs, while Tanner Leggett’s walk-off single on Saturday advanced the Diamond Dawgs to the championship series. Mississippi State has a full house this season, thanks to all of those Tanners who are getting hot.
VANDERBILT: Two wins away from two in a row
The Vandy Boys have advanced to the championship series for the second year in a row and for the fourth time overall since the beginning of 2014. They were defeated by Virginia on their first attempt to repeat as champions in 2015, and they are hoping for a different outcome this year. Let’s not disregard the fact that there is an elephant in the room. Vanderbilt progressed to the finals in an unprecedented manner, which our colleagues at D1baseball were able to decipher in the small hours of the morning on Saturday.
The Wolfpack were sent home the next day as a consequence of further positive COVID-19 test results, propelling Vanderbilt to the championship series with a no-contest victory.
A walk-off single by Jay Gonzalez gave the Vandy Boys an opening-round victory against Arizona before Spencer Jones raced home on a wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat Stanford in the second game of the tournament.
Who’s hot right now: Kumar Rocker wasn’t at his best against a difficult Arizona squad, but he bounced back in the 3-1 victory over NC State on Saturday night.
He was credited with the victory.
With 15 strikeouts and one run allowed, he was on the losing end of the most entertaining pitcher’s duel in Omaha history.
He has now struck out 183 batters this season, only 11 shy of David Price’s single-season school record of 184.
Dominic Keeganis is leading the way offensively, which should come as no surprise given his talent.
Enrique Bradfield, Jr., the SEC freshman of the year, had a huge three-hit effort against Stanford, including a game-tying single in the bottom of the ninth inning to tie the game.
Carter Young started the week with a monster home run against Arizona, but has been somewhat quiet since then, as the rest of the lineup hopes to put together a couple of strong starts next week in the National League. THE COLLEGE WORLD SERIES IN 2021
