Rockies Team History

The Colorado Rockies are a professional baseball team in the United States. And the Rockies compete in the West division of the National League (NL) of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Firstly, the Rockies were established in 1993. And they were named after the Rocky Mountains, where the city of Denver is located.

The Colorado Rockies have never won a division championship. However, the Rockies have won a wild card berth five times. Most importantly, they won the National League pennant in 1993.

Unfortunately, the Rockies were swept by the Boston Red Sox of the American League, who won the best of seven series in four games.

The Colorado Rockies play home games at Coors Field in the Lower Downtown section of  Denver, Colorado. In fact, it is two blocks from Union Station.

Because of Denver’s high elevation and low humidity, the stadium is known as a hitter’s park.

For this reason, the outfield fences are positioned further away from home plate than in other MLB parks.

Word to the Wise

While most of these venues tend to attract Colorado Rockies fans on game day, there are no guarantees.

First of all, not all baseball games are broadcast. And even when they are, sometimes they won’t turn on the sound. Other times they might show other events. And there is always the chance the venue might be booked for special events.

Also, fans sometimes migrate to other venues. And bars sometimes close.

Therefore, you should always call ahead to make sure that the game you want to watch will be broadcast.
