LA Tech signs Six for 2010-2011 Season
RUSTON– Six high school prep stars signed National Letters of Intent and will be a part of the Louisiana Tech baseball program in 2011, CoachWade Simoneaux announced today.
“I like the fact that all our signees are high school guys,” Tech head coach Wade Smoneaux said. “They all had opportunities to go elsewhere and chose Tech in the end.
