Vanderbilt hosts Tennessee this weekend in a Southeastern Conference series beginning on Friday night.
The Commodores and Volunteers are set to play Friday night at 6:30 p.m. with the first 1,000 fans receiving Vanderbilt Baseball wristbands. Following the game kids will be allowed on to the field to play catch with their parents.
Saturday night's game will be broadcast on CSS with first pitch set for 6 p.m. The first 200 fans into the park that night will receive a t-shirt jersey of former Commodore great Pedro Alvarez. Prior to the game the Commodores will honor the family of Stephen Gant. Gant would have been part of the Dores' No. 1 recruiting class this season but tragically passed away last spring.
The Dores and Vols wrap up the series on Easter Sunday with game time scheduled for 1 p.m. Hawkins Field will host an Easter Egg Hunt (weather permitting) following the game with select eggs containing special prizes.
The Coca-Cola Kids Zone will be giving out Vanderbilt baseball mini helmets all weekend to children.
