Drillers To Return To The Field

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- The Tulsa Drillers will return to the field Tuesday night as a way to honor the late coach Mike Coolbaugh. Coolbaugh was killed Sunday night when a line drive hit him in the head as he coached first base during a game at Little Rock, Arkansas.

That game was suspended and Monday night's game at Wichita was postponed.

The team met Monday and voted to return to play Tuesday.

Driller President Chuck Lamson and Colorado Rockies director of player development, Marc Gustafson made a few comments before the team left for Wichita Tuesday morning. Click here to watch the video.
