Chris Coghlan NL Rookie of the month for August


Having to do a little catching up, since Friday was so unkind to me.

Chris Coghlan was voted the Rookie of the Month.

Florida Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan has been voted the August recipient of the Gillette presents National League Rookie of the Month Award.

Coghlan compiled a Major League-best 47 hits in 28 games during August while batting .385 (47-122), and led all N.L. rookies with 21 runs scored. Coghlan's 47 hits established a Marlins record for a single month, and joined him with Wally Moon (52 hits - July, 1954) as the only N.L. rookies in the last 60 years to record 47 or more hits in a calendar month.

 The voting for this award couldn't have taken very long since it is hard to imagine any other rookie did anything close or equivalent to what Coghlan did.

Congrats Chris!
