The first phase of renovations to Lindsey Nelson Stadium is complete, and UT Knoxville faculty and staff are invited to an employees-only sneak peek Wednesday, Oct. 15, from 4-6 p.m. Employees can tour the Volunteers' new-look baseball facilities and watch the team practice as it prepares for the second game of this fall's Orange & White World Series.
The event is free, and cookies and lemonade will be provided. Employees may park in Lot C1 off Todd Helton Drive or in Staff Lot 23 off Pat Head Summitt Street, near the rock.
Employees also can enter to win a "Flex 20 Pack" of 2009 baseball tickets--20 tickets good anytime--and baseballs autographed by current MLB standouts Chris Burke of the Arizona Diamondbacks or Luke Hochevar of the Kansas City Royals.
The Orange & White World Series continues Friday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. The squads battled to an 8-8 tie in Game 1.
