Peyton Manning is back on Rocky Top for a big weekend in Knoxville.
Manning threw out the first pitch ahead of No. 4 Tennessee baseball’s game against No. 1 Arkansas.

Volunteers skipper Tony Vitello might want to ask Manning to throw out the first pitch every home game. Facing Arkansas pitcher Patrick Wicklander (1.69 ERA), UT jumped out to a 5-0 lead on the Razorbacks in the first inning. Jake Rucker knocked in two runs with a double and Jordan Beck contributed a three-run home run. The Hogs have made it 5-2 in the top of the second inning.
Adding to the excitement, it’s a packed house at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
Lindsey Nelson is ROCKIN!

Unfortunately, with the SEC baseball TV schedule set in advance, the game is not on TV and only streaming via SEC Network+.
