The stadium is getting a facelift in celebration of 100 years of Tennessee baseball. The first phase of renovations is complete, which provides the greater Knoxville area the chance to take a look. Those in attendance Wednesday took a tour the facility and watched the Vols practice. They also entered to win a "Flex 20 Pack" of baseball tickets—20 tickets good anytime—and baseballs autographed by Chris Burke or Luke Hochevar. Cookies and lemonade were provided.
