Silent Auction to Benefit Mike Coolbaugh Memorial Fund

Sometimes we just can’t do enough for a family who loses a loved one tragically, but for the next two Friday home games, we are hoping you will help us support the family of former Royals minor league player Mike Coolbaugh.

On Friday, Aug. 10, 2007, during the Toronto Blue Jays vs. Kansas City Royals game, a silent auction will be held to benefit the Coolbaugh family, who lost Mike on Sunday, July 22, after being struck in the back of the neck by a line drive while coaching first base during a game in North Little Rock, Ark. Mike, who played for the Omaha Royals in 2006, had just stepped in as the hitting coach for the Tulsa Drillers, the Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, earlier this month. The auction, which will be the first of two we hold this month to benefit the Mike Coolbaugh Memorial Fund, will take place from 5 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in Section 101-102 on the main concourse inside Kauffman Stadium.
