Dores Set for David Williams Fall Classic

Vanderbilt concludes fall training this weekend

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Vanderbilt baseball team is set to conclude its fall this weekend, as the Commodores will host the David Williams Fall Classic on Sunday afternoon.

The David Williams Fall Classic, formerly known as the Black and Gold Game, is set for a 1 p.m. first pitch with admission free to the public. Fans will be able to enter through the main gates which will open two hours prior to first pitch. Seating will be available anywhere throughout the infield while there will be no concessions.

Vanderbilt has participated in two exhibitions this fall, including matchups with Samford and Arizona State.

Vanderbilt welcomed Samford to Hawkins Field on Oct. 23 for its first fall exhibition. The Commodores and Bulldogs faced off for 10 innings, playing a set of one four-inning game followed by a pair three-inning contests. Vanderbilt edged Samford in two of the three games, while outscoring the Bulldogs 10-7 on the afternoon.

Vandy then traveled to Las Vegas to face Arizona State in a neutral-site contest on Oct. 30. The Commodores and Sun Devils faced off for 10 innings, playing one six-inning game followed by a four-inning contest. Vanderbilt earned victories in both games, outscoring the Sun Devils 20-2 on the day.

Vanderbilt welcomes 13 newcomers this season, while returning consensus All-American Enrique Bradfield Jr. and a pair of Freshman All-America pitchers in Carter Holton and Devin Futrell.
