Tyler Coolbaugh is having a good season as a senior at Angelo State University. He’s had an advantage over other players since his father, Scott Coolbaugh, is the hitting coach for the Baltimore Orioles. Tyler spent last summer with his father and was able to get hitting advice from him while often taking batting practice with the Orioles team.
Tyler had also previously played college baseball at the University of Oklahoma.
Scott Coolbaugh played in the majors from 1989 to 1994 with Texas, San Diego, and St. Louis. He has been on the Orioles coaching staff since the 2015 season and previously was hitting coach for the Texas Rangers.
Tyler’s uncle, Mike Coolbaugh, briefly played in the majors in 2001 and 2002.
