Reaching out to the Coolbaugh family

Former Minor League player and current MLB.com anchor-reporter Paul Devlin is participating in a five-mile Maryland Swim for Life in the Baltimore area on July 11. Devlin is asking for donations to benefit the family of Mike Coolbaugh, who was coaching at the Rockies’ Double-A affiliate in Tulsa when he was struck and killed by a foul line drive during a game on July 22, 2007.

Why, Devlin simply said he wanted to “give back.” He plans on giving 100 percent of proceeds to Coolbaugh’s children. Coolbaugh left behind a wife and two children, one of whom was born after the incident.

Here is more about the event.
