Roosevelt High School ScholarshipThe Mike Coolbaugh Memorial Tournament offers special thanks to the Roosevelt High School Class of 1990 for their initiative and hard work in raising money for a scholarship designated in honor of Mike Coolbaugh. Continuing education was a priority for Mike who began his pursuit of a professional degree in the last year of his life. Mike was the recipient of an academic award presented post-humously by San Antonio College which enabled his children to observe first-hand not only the importance Mike placed on education, but also the impact he was able to make on his professors and classmates in the short time he was able to pursue this dream. The Mike Coolbaugh/Class of 1990 scholarship will be awarded to a 2011 senior from Roosevelt High School who exemplifies character, endurance, and conduct becoming of a student all of which characterized Mike's appreciation for the value and level of effort required to obtain a college education. We appreciate Mike's High School class supporting this award which not only benefits the community but also reinforces Mike's aspirations for his children.

Bereavement Kids Visit Local Minor League Parks
"Baseball is the great American pass time! After the death of a loved one, people's families are in disarray. In grief, it is easy to feel isolated and separated from the rest of the world. I can't think of a better way to bring families together. Baseball, like most other team sports, also helps kids in the physiological recovery from grief. Most people don't realize that there's a tremendous amount of physiology involved in the grieving process. Children (and adults) experience the build up of stress hormones that wreak havoc on a person's body and mind. Playing and watching baseball helps to alleviate some of those stress hormones, helping kids and adults recover more quickly."
