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

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:
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.
