Golden Spikes Spotlight: Louisiana Tech’s Ethan Bates

Features

This was a tough loss.

Gut-wrenching.

The 2023 Louisiana Tech Bulldogs had grabbed an 11-10 lead in the top of the 10th inning on Ethan Bates’ solo homer … only to see Florida Atlantic draw three walks before current major-leaguer Nolan Schanuel smacked a two-run, walk-off single for a 12-11 victory.
