The baseball diamond that the Colorado Rockies call home is a treasure! This is a beautiful field with a view of the mountains that few ballparks could compete with. If the Rockies hit a home run (and the thin air lets them hit quite a few)the fountain next to the scoreboard comes alive and gives you a brief water show. The outside of the Blake Street bomber's home sports Columbines (something for the ladies?) the state flower, as well as the traditional brick and glass of the classic park. The field is always beautifully groomed: there are heating coils underground to melt spring snows--the game must go on! The seats are comfortable for a stadium--if you have visited Dodger Stadium you will feel like you have entered a luxury condo when comparing space. The purple row of seats mark the "mile high" zone. If you are on a budget these are perfectly good seats. In fact all of the seats in this park offer an excellent view. Another good budget seat are those located under the scoreboard. They are bleachers with backs, but they afford one of the most likely spots for catching a home run ball.
The ticket prices are reasonable for a professional sporting event. Best of all tickets for the "Rockpile"--in the outfield are always available on gameday--price $4! Tickets are available online, by phone, at the Rockies Dugout store and at King Sooper stores.
The stadium is very family friendly: you may bring a small soft-sided cooler into the park with sandwiches and soft drinks: no cans or glass bottles allowed. Get your peanuts at King Soopers when you pick up your tickets!
The park opens 2 hours before game time to allow fans to view hitting practice and try to snag a foul ball or an autograph.
A visit to Coors field and a Rockies game is a wonderful way to spend an evening or an afternoon.
