Happy Birthday - Feb. 20

We've got three Big Orange birthdays on Rocky Top on this third Friday of February, as current student-athletes Brueck Ball (rowing) and Brodie Leftridge (baseball) celebrate their respective birthdays, as does baseball VFL Julio Borbon. 

A sophomore from Nashville, Ball is in her second season with Tennessee rowing and first as a varsity squad member. She turns 20 years old today. 

A true freshman from Baltimore, Maryland, outfielder Leftridge is gearing up for his first season with Vol Baseball. He was ranked a top-50 outfielder coming out of St. John's Catholic Prep and was the No. 4 prospect out of the state of Maryland. Leftridge turns 19 years old today. 

VFL Julio Borbon, now with the Baltimore Orioles organization, helped Tennessee reach the College World Series in 2005. He ranked third on that team with a .350 batting average -- the fifth-best batting average for a freshman in Tennessee history. He went on to lead UT with a .366 batting average in 2006 and posted a .345 batting average in 2007 -- his final season on Rocky Top.
