Baseball America All-America Teams

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The final All-America teams of the season were released by Baseball America this week with three Volunteers earning second-team honors.

Sophomore pitcher Chase Dollander secured his sixth All-America nod this year, with the other five being first-team selections. The right-hander was also named the SEC Pitcher of the Year, just the second player in program history to win that award (Luke Hochevar, 2005). The Evans, Georgia, native posted a perfect 10-0 record and led the country with a 0.80 WHIP. He also was second in the SEC with 108 strikeouts and led the conference with a 2.39 ERA while holding opposing hitters to a .175 batting average.

Senior third baseman Trey Lipscomb and Junior outfielder Drew Gilbert were also selected as second team All-Americans, both also picking up their sixth All-America honors of the season. Neither individual had ever been named to an All-America team prior to this year.

Lipscomb sat atop the SEC in RBIs at the end of the season, with 84 in 2022. That figure ranks third in single-season program history while Gilbert’s 70 rank eighth, and put him fourth in the conference.

The duo also combined to hit 33 of Tennessee’s record-setting 158 home runs, with Lipscomb crushing 22 and Gilbert blasting 11.

Tennessee has had eight players earn non-freshman All-America honors this season, doubling the previous program record of four set in 2021 and 1994. If you include freshmen All-Americans, the Vols have had nine players earn All-America recognition, which also smashed the previous school record of five in 2021.
