JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 23, 2017) – ETSU baseball head coach Tony Skole and his staff announced on Thursday the make-up dates for the Buccaneers’ series with Tennessee.
The Bucs – who had their home game with the Vols postponed on Tuesday March 7 – will now host Tennessee on Tuesday, April 11 at Thomas Stadium. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. Please note, fans who purchased tickets for the March 7 game can use those tickets on April 11. The game at Thomas Stadium is sponsored by V's Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine.

ETSU and Tennessee will still play its originally scheduled game at Smokies Stadium on Wednesday, April 26 at 6 p.m., while the game in Knoxville has now been moved to Tuesday, May 2.
"We are glad that we were able to work with Tennessee to find a date that would work for both programs,” said Skole. “As the season shrinks it's never an easy task to find dates that are available for both teams. Playing Tennessee in Thomas Stadium is always exciting and is great for our fans and our community.
"We are looking forward to the additional game with Tennessee this year in Sevierville at the Smokies Stadium. I want to personally thank Boyd Sports and their management team for putting this event together. It will be exciting for our players to be able to play in this beautiful facility, and will be a great event for all our ETSU alumni and supporters in the area.”
