Tech's Simoneaux jokes at Tech TAG event

Louisiana Tech baseball coach Wade Simoneaux was quite the entertainer during Wednesday's Northwest Louisiana Tech Advancement Group luncheon at the University Club in downtown Shreveport.

Simoneaux, who has quietly built the Bulldog baseball team into a WAC power, will serve as the WAC host coach for the WAC baseball tournament on May 22-25. He has set about raising approximately $130,000 for stadium renovations in preparation for that event.

And he hopes Tech fans respond by filling the stadium to cheer for his Bulldogs, if they qualify for the tournament as expected.

"We need to have a lot of people there to offset the 450 drunks in grass skirts that Hawaii has or the 6 year olds who cuss us by our dugout in Nevada," Simoneaux said tongue-in-cheek."

Simoneaux also told a joke about former President Bill Clinton and his Presidential candidate wife, Hillary, but we'll let you ask him about it.
"I can say that now because (Athletic Director) Jim Oakes (a staunch Democrat) is on his way out," Simoneaux said chuckling.
