“Home of the Colorado Rockies”
Built two blocks from Union Station in Denver's Lower Downtown, Coors Field was the first new stadium in the National League since Montreal's Stade Olympique opened in 1977. It was the NL's first new park built exclusively for baseball since Dodger Stadium in 1962. The Rockies spent their first two seasons in the Denver Broncos' Mile High Stadium, where they set 12 attendance records. The new ballpark does not have the capacity to hold 80,000 people, as Mile High did, however. Coors Field attempts to combine the comforts of a modern stadium with the atmosphere of the old-time ballparks. It is constructed with hand-laid brick and has an old-fashioned clock tower atop its main entrance. It is asymmetrical, with the deepest part of the park (424 feet) in right-center field, and balls that hit the big out-of-town scoreboard in right field are in play. The two bullpens sit side-by-side next to the scoreboard in right-center and are elevated. The natural grass field can drain 5 inches of water per hour, and there is a heating system under the field that melts snow the moment it hits the ground. Concession stands in the concourse are laid out so that a fan can walk 360 degrees around the stadium and never lose sight of the field.
Beautiful stadium to watch baseball! The weather was great as it was sunny and blue sky for the night game! The atmosphere of the stadium is awesome! Rockies fans sure show their support for their team in a great way. Our bleacher seats in Centerfield above the wooded scenery was a beautiful sight to take in. Though the Nats won the game, we still had a great time all around! A MUST SEE stadium for all fans of baseball to check out!! You'll not be disappointed!
Coors Field is one of the finest in the MLB. Sitting the upper deck behind the plate will give you an amazing view of Rocky Mountains.
If your tickets are anywhere in the outfield, bring your mitt– balls fly out of the stadium with ease in the thin air! Also, make sure to look for the purple line going around the stadium marking the 1-mile marker above sea level.
