R.I.P., Mike Coolbaugh(1972-2007)

From Rotoworld.com.

Former major league infielder and current Tulsa hitting coach Mike Coolbaugh died Sunday night after being struck in the head by a line drive as he stood in the first-base coach’s box in a game against Arkansas.

Unbelievable. Coolbaugh was knocked unconscious and CPR was administered to him on the field after he was struck in the forehead. The 35-year-old was still alive when he was put in an ambulance, but stopped breathing before arriving at the hospital. Coolbaugh, who played in 44 games for the Brewers in 2001 and the Cardinals in 2002, hit 256 career homers in the minors before retiring after last season. He had just taken the job as Tulsa’s hitting and first-base coach on July 3. He is survived by his wife and two children, with a third on the way in October.

前大聯盟選手,現任小聯盟二A球隊Tulsa Drillers打擊教練的Mike Coolbaugh,週日晚在對抗Arkansas Travelers的比賽時,站在一壘教練指導區被一發界外強襲球擊中,送醫不治死亡。

雖然不認識這位選手,聽說他打過韓職,但發生這種遺憾的事件還是讓人心情很不好…
