Durham Bulls Manager Charlie Montoyo wins Coolbaugh Award

Posted by on Wed, Nov 18, 2009 at 11:40 PM

When it rains (which it is now doing, again) it pours. Soon after winning the Triple-A Baseball Championship, and then announcing a historic DBAP partnership with the Duke University baseball team, the Bulls chalked up more good news: manager Charlie Montoyo has won the second annual Coolbaugh Award, which "is presented to an individual who has shown an outstanding baseball work ethic, knowledge of the game and skill in mentoring young players on the field."

The award is named for the late Mike Coolbaugh, the player and coach who in 2007 was struck and killed by a foul line drive as he stood in the first base coaches box of a Double-A Tulsa Drillers game. An absorbing, thorough interview with a journalist who wrote about the catastrophe and its aftermath can be found here.

Congrats to Montoyo from all of us Triangle Offenders. The award is well-deserved.
