Take me out to the ball game…at Coors Field. Take me out to the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks. I don’t care if I never get back. Let me root, root, root for the Rockies! If they don’t win it’s a shame. For it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the old ball game!
Before there was Coors Field, the Rockies played their first two seasons (1993 & 1994) at the old Mile High Stadium. The year 1995 was a total game changer – pun fully intended! Coors Field opened up in lower downtown (LoDo) and led not just the Rockies but the entire city of Denver through a metamorphosis. The Blake Street Bombers, aptly named for the north/south street next to the stadium, began hammering home runs in the thin air of the Mile High City.
We just caught a game last week, and we were fortunate enough to see the likes of Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, Carlos Gonzalez, and Jon Gray. My personal favorite, Charlie Blackmon, was in prime form with his beard fully engulfing his neck.
Even if you’re not a huge baseball fan, it’s tough to beat Coors Field. You can sit on the east side of the stadium and get an incredible view of the Rocky Mountains. The sunsets cast by the waning sun are unbeatable. And if you’re looking for one of the best parties in town, the Monforts (the oft criticized owners of the Rockies) recently constructed the booze cruise of the city – the Rooftop at Coors Field (aka “the party deck”).
So grab your purple garb, peanuts, and baseball glove and enjoy America’s pastime in its ultimate setting: Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. The experience won’t leave you disappointed. Make a full day out of it by visiting the Giggling Grizzly or Blake Street Tavern before the game for a beer or two!
