Mike Coolbaugh Award


Mike Coolbaugh Award
Bobby Jones won the inaugural Mike Coolbaugh Award.

The Mike Coolbaugh Award is presented annually by Minor League Baseball (MiLB). The award, first given in 2008, is presented to a MiLB figure who has shown an "outstanding baseball work ethic, knowledge of the game, and skill in mentoring young players on the field."[1]

The award was developed to honor Mike Coolbaugh, who died—while coaching at first base—when he was struck by a line drive during a MiLB game in July 2007.[2] It is presented at the annual MiLB banquet at the baseball winter meetings.[2]
