Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Tonight, it’s the Battle of the Barrel. Vanderbilt baseball renews its annual rivalry with Louisville (somehow, only a rival in baseball) at 5:00 PM CT on ESPNU, and never forget what happened in 2019:

Anyway, this is a nice warmup for the final two series of SEC play. Vanderbilt has series remaining with Florida and Arkansas.

Vanderbilt women’s golf finished the first day of the Westfield Regional in a tie for sixth place. The top five teams in the three-day competition will advance to the NCAA Championship later this month. Today’s second round opens at 7:00 AM CT; live scoring here.

Vanderbilt has a new radio partner: 102.5 The Game, which will replace whatever station (I never could remember it) that has been broadcasting the games. It’s also the home of the Predators, and there’s a backup station when there’s a conflict with the Preds.
