Tech baseball makes waves

In this week's Baseball America college preview, Will Kimmey tagged Louisiana Tech as his upset special.

And he was right on the money as Tech swept three games from Fresno.

While last season's sweep of Fresno in Ruston came as a surprise, this one shouldn't. This year's version of the Diamond Dawgs are doing all the little things right and the big ones too.

Wade Simoneaux's bunch is in first place in the WAC at the halfway mark of conference play -- marking the latest in the season the Bulldogs have held down the top spot since joining the WAC in 2002.

Simoneaux knows what it takes to build a program and to see that program through to Omaha. Now, six years after going there as an assistant coach, Simoneaux has made a late June trip to Nebraska a much more realistic dream for his team and their fans.
