      That is just about the saddest story I’ve read in a while. I have grown up around baseball my whole life – playing it for many years myself and watching it with my dad forever. I called dad to tell him about it, he can’t recall it happening before – he remembered a guy getting hit in the eye really bad before but not dying. His wife was pregnant and they had two little boys, too…so sad. I feel bad for the hitter too, who would’ve been on Coolbaugh’s own team.
