Former Ankeny baseball standout Tamden Webb-Tate has found a new home.
After a successful freshman season at St. Charles Community College in Missouri, Webb-Tate has committed to play for LSU-Shreveport, an NAIA Division I program.
“I talked to a few schools, but Shreveport really just stood out to me with how the coaches and staff showed love to me from the beginning, and I built a good connection with them,” said Webb-Tate.
As a senior at Ankeny in 2022, Webb-Tate batted .421 with four triples, 14 doubles and 50 RBIs while helping the Hawks to a second consecutive CIML Iowa Conference title. The catcher/first baseman was named to the Class 4A all-state third team by the Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association.
Webb-Tate helped St. Charles to a 33-27 record last season. He played in 49 games and batted .287 with one home run, 11 doubles and 28 RBIs.
Webb-Tate will become the second former Ankeny player in recent years to head to the “Pelican State”. Weston Fulk, who started his career at Iowa, transferred to LSU Eunice–a junior college program–in 2022.
“I liked the elite level of competition at Shreveport as well as a great program with great facilities and resources to develop my skills to have the best chance to move on to professional baseball in the future,” Webb-Tate said.
