Coolbaugh Memorial Tournament

This will be the first in many posts on this topic. Ever since I wrote a story about S.L. Price’s book about Mike Coolbaugh, I’ve felt a connection to the story and have wanted to help the family out in any way possible (I’m assuming by now most of you know Mike’s story — career Minor Leaguer who was tragically killed by a foul ball while coaching first base about two years ago). It might not be much, but writing about the Mike Coolbaugh Memorial Tournament repeatedly in this space is a good start. Here’s the basics:

When: Saturday, Nov. 7., 2009
Where: Tapatio Springs Golf Resort, Boerne, TX
What: A golf event, followed by a dinner and silent auction

What can you do, you ask? I’m glad you did. You have several options:

  • You can attend. The more the merrier: You can click the link to register. Teams of four who register by June 30 will save $200.
  • You can donate/sponsor. Click this link to find out about personal donations or even coroprate-type sponsorship opportunities.
  • You can participate in the auction. Check out items from last year’s auction here. If you attend the event, you can bid on great items. If you’re a collector, a player, an agent, a team, that’s reading this, you can send donations to:
Coolbaugh Memorial
11844 Bandera Rd # 447
Helotes, TX 78023

Or you can email them with any questions. Click here to email

Speaking of the auction, I wanted to give a shout out to some companies who have already shown incredible generosity in donating to the Coolbaugh Memorial:

Akadema Pro
Old Hickory Bats
Fatheadz, Inc. Eyewear

They’ve stepped up in a big way. If you or your company can be that generous, I’ll give you some love here on the blog.
