Award for Jones

Oklahoma manager and all-around good guy Bobby Jones has been selected as the recipient of the inaugural Mike Coolbaugh Award, which goes to the person who displays work ethic, knowledge of the game and an ability to mentor players.

Coolbaugh, who was killed last year when struck by a line drive while coach first base for Double-A Tulsa, played under Jones in 1996. Coolbaugh's brother, Scott, is a coach in the Rangers' minor-league system.

Jones, who completed his 21st as a coach or manager in the organization, will receive his award during the winter meetings next month in Las Vegas.
