Persistence pays off for Gwaltney

Louisiana Tech just sent another player to the minor leagues. This time, however, it's a promotion.

Over the weekend, former Tech right-hander Lee Gwaltney, who had pitched for the American Association's Fort Worth Cats for a couple of seasons, had his contract sold to the San Diego Padres.

Now, Gwaltney won't be toeing the rubber at Petco Park anytime soon, but it marks his return to affiliated baseball for the first time since 2006.

Just more proof that persistence pays off.
