Farragut pitcher Kyle Serrano is looking forward to joining his father, UT baseball head coach Dave Serrano, with the Vols next season.

The Vols' pitching is expected to be improve with the addition of Kyle Serrano, a senior at Farragut who has committed to play ball at UT next season.

"I look forward to it a lot. I think it would be a cool experience," said Kyle. "At first it was kinda do I want to? I figured I always wanted to do it that's why I committed there."

Being a coach's son, Kyle has picked of a lot of the game just being around his father.

"He's taken in the knowledge since he was about six years old of being in college baseball dugouts," said Dave. "Being a coach I don't get to be a father as much. I don't get to go to the Saturday little league games and go out and play catch with him all the time. He's done that on the field with our players. I saw at a young age an amazing arm out of him."

Now everyone else is taking notice of Kyle's arm. He's hit 95 on the radar gun and tossed a no-hitter for Farragut that his dad wasn't able to see.

"That's one of the main reasons I wanted him to come here," explained Dave. "Because for the next 3 years I get to watch (Kyle) every day which I haven't gotten a chance to do. Running programs I get there as much as I can, but I see other kids perform more than i get to see my own boy."

The younger Serrano is looking forward to being a Vol and helping his dad with his pitching.

"I want to help that team win as much as possible and I think it'll be cool to win with my dad in the same jersey."
