The Tennessee Vols baseball team received some extremely good news on Tuesday.
According to a report from VolQuest, right-handed pitcher Camden Sewell has decided to return to Tennessee for his final season of eligibility.
Sewell, who went 7-1 last season with a 2.52 ERA, had accepted a job at Knoxville’s American Accessories International after the 2022 season. But he just couldn’t pass up playing one more season for the Vols.
“It came down to what I would regret the most,” said Sewell to VolQuest. “It came down to the fact that I have one more year to play, and if I still love to play, why not play? I feel like if I would have looked back, even if I don’t play professional baseball after this year, I would regret it because I had one more year and didn’t use it. That’s what I don’t want to do, regret not using my extra year.”
Sewell’s decision to return speaks volumes about the culture that Vols head coach Tony Vitello has created at Tennessee.
Players love playing under Vitello. The brotherhood inside the Vols’ clubhouse is special. That’s something that’s clear from the way this team interacts with each other.
Sewell gets to enjoy one final season with his teammates while Tennessee gets an important pitcher back for one more year. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
