Base coaches to don head protection

General managers decided today to require first- and third-base coaches to wear head protection on the final day of the GM meetings in Orlando. That's in response to Class AA Tulsa coach Mike Coolbaugh's death in July after being hit in the neck by a line drive.

They didn't specify what protection -- full double-eared helmet, no-eared helmet, hat liner? -- and will decide that at next month's winter meetings in Nashville.

Thanks for staying on top of this for us, Stacy! Keep up the great work! We are indeed in the dreary days of no baseball--your coverage is like a refreshing spring of water to a thirsty man in the desert!
