Four Vols named to D1baseball.com All-America Teams

Knoxville, Tenn. (WATE) — Four Tennessee baseball players have won more All-America allowances. D1Baseball.com has released its post-season All-America teams and four Vols have been listed.

  • (RHP) Chase Dollander-First Team
  • (RHP) Chase Burns – Third Team
  • (3B) Trey Lipscomb-Third Team
  • (OF) Drew Gilbert-third team

Sophomore right-hander Chase Dollander earned his fifth All-America First-Team honor this season. He is the first Vol to achieve the feat since Luke Hovechar in 2005. The pitcher joins an elite group of Tennessee players to earn first-team praise from five other outlets, joining Todd Helton (1995), Jeff Pickler (1998), Chris Burke (2001) and Hochevar (2005).

Fellow pitcher Chase Burns made his fourth All-America team. He joins former Al Cy Young Award winner RA Dickey as the only player to be named to four All-America teams as a rookie.

Vols starting third baseman Treyp Lipscomb and outfielder Drew Gilbert were both named D1Baseball Third Team All-Americans. Lipscomb finished the season with 84 RBIs, good for third-best in a single season by any steal. Gilbert scored 70 ribbies, ranking eighth in single-season history. The two also combined for a record 33 of Tennessee’s 158 home runs last season.
