Tennessee Vols baseball coach Tony Vitello turned a negative into a positive this week and helped raise some money for charity.

Vitello was suspended for four games this past weekend after bumping an umpire during Tennessee’s series against Alabama.

On Wednesday, Vitello helped raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project by selling “chest bumps” for $2.

Vitello felt the need to make sure folks knew he wasn’t making light of his suspension by selling chest bumps for charity.

“I would never condone the contact I made on the field (with the umpire),” said Vitello to the Knoxville News Sentinel. “It was for a good cause. It is hard to argue with that.”

Vitello probably felt the need to clarify that he wasn’t “making fun” of his suspension because of how prickly the SEC office can be at times. You never know when the SEC could inflict more punishment.

Tennessee is already public enemy No. 1 in college baseball. I guess Vitello just didn’t feel the need to push the limits anymore this week.
