Colorado Rockies Tickets

Colorado Rockies Tickets

The Colorado Rockies satisfied Denver’s craving for a Major League baseball team in 1993 after numerous failed attempts to entice an established team to move there. The Rockies joined the league in the same expansion that included the Florida Marlins. The team began playing at Mile High Stadium and moved to Coors Field in Denver's LoDo area in 1995. Fans call the Rockies the Rox or the Blake Street Bombers. Among the most popular Rockies are Todd Helton, Vinny Castilla, Larry Walker, and Andres Galarraga.

Coors Field, Home to the Colorado Rockies

At an elevation of nearly one mile above sea level, Coors Field in Denver, Colorado has been home to Rockies baseball since 1995. Coors Field has maintained a reputation of being an extremely hitter-friendly park because of its elevation and dry, thin air. As a result, Coors Field ranks consistently at the top ballpark in terms of home runs and base hits given up. Coors Field is the first Major League Baseball stadium to have an underground heating system and is located in the Denver neighborhood of Lower Downtown, or LoDo.

Colorado Rockies and the National League West

Since their inception in 1993, the Colorado Rockies have been in the West division of the National League. They have never won the division outright but have earned playoff spots three times as a wild card team in 1995, 2007, and 2009. The Rockies also earned a spot in the World Series in 2007 but lost to the Boston Red Sox in four games. Their fiercest rivalry is with the nearby Arizona Diamondbacks, who also play in the NL West.

Colorado Rockies 2012 Team Outlook

The Rockies have been very active in the offseason, from acquiring aging pitcher Jamie Moyer to picking up shortstop Marco Scutaro from the Red Sox for pitcher Clayton Mortensen. General Manager Dan O’Dowd has been working hard to shore up the starting rotation through trades and-with the acquisition of Scutaro-appears to have filled a hole in the middle infield. Through savvy team management and good pitching, the Rockies might be able to put together a winning season and make a run towards the playoffs.
