Mike's Extra Innings

  • About Mike's Extra Innings

    Mike’s Extra Innings is a program through which Diamond Dreams identifies and offers assistance to people in the larger baseball community who have lost loved ones or are otherwise in need of help in difficult times.  Mike Coolbaugh believed that “baseball takes care of its own,” and so when a member of our extended baseball family—which spans from little leaguers to major leaguers to retired scouts and coaches—is affected by tragedy or hard times, Diamond Dreams wants to be there to help out.

    Diamond Dreams thanks the Lindale High School baseball family, who helped us raise money for Mike’s Extra Innings.  In May, James Vilade, a member of the Diamond Dreams Board of Directors, was invited to speak at the 2012 Lindale Baseball Banquet.  Vilade talked to the attendees about some of his experience in baseball and about the values that Diamond Dreams promotes among the keepers of the game of baseball.  The proceeds from an auction of Rangers memorabilia were donated to Mike Coolbaugh Diamond Dreams.
