This is Very Cool

The Colorado Rockies have voted to give the widow of Mike Coolbaugh, a minor league coach in their system who was killed earlier this year after being struck by a line drive, a full share of the teams earnings for reaching the playoffs.

Few players on the Rockies knew Coolbaugh, who joined the organization in early July, but last week, they unanimously voted his widow a full playoff share that could be more than $350,000 if the Rockies win the World Series.

“I’m completely shocked in a good way,” (Mandy) Coolbaugh said. “I don’t even know the correct words to use. I know Mike would feel very honored and proud. This would mean a lot to him, and it means a lot to our family.”

Mrs. Coolbaugh is expecting the birth of her third child any day.
