Its Colorado Rockies Awareness Day

The Rockies jumped out to a 12 - 4 record to start this season - and finished off 62 -0 84 afterwards.  This club often reminds me of an aging heavyweight fighter.  You may beat on them for a time, but there is always that chance the team will land a haymaker on you.  2007 was one of their days in the sunshine.

We cover all 30 teams in the Majors, but some of the franchises are just more entertaining than others.

In the last 14 months, I have studied the Rockies and Athletics more than any other team in the MLB.

I am fascinated by the Coors Field effect on the baseball.  I wrote a 2 part blog going through the numbers for the park pre and post humidor, and the most significant players on in their history of what their road and home splits were.

Coors Field is still a hitting haven.  While the averages have all dipped approximately 10% since the Humidor was placed into the facility over a decade ago, it still remains the premiere place for any of the MLB'ers to bat.  Some of the organizational players will not hit as good on the road, with playing in the NL West, in cavernous parks like Dodger Stadium, Petco Park and AT & T Park, however the weight will only affect their overall numbers away from the thin air.  Historic players like Larry Walker and Todd Helton displayed good road numbers, despite their gawdy home statistics, however they will never be looked in the same eye.

Since the time of the 1st post, I bought this website, and have less time now than ever to do exactly what I want in terms of writing.  However I will never grow tired of writing and covering the Colorado franchise.

Just a note here, Coors Field is one of the most sneaky awesome parks out there in baseball.  If I lived in Denver, I would be a season ticket holder for sure.

You can buy Rockpile tickets for just $4, parking can be found for $5, and they enough street vendors to fill your stomach – with $1 items before you go inside, that the value for the dollar spent, is among the highest at this beautiful park.

Coors Field is often ranked highly by Ballpark Chasers that have been to all 3o MLB Parks.  It has a modern feel to it, the tickets are cheap and the parking features many outlets to go based on price.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
