    The City of Denver for years was home to the Denver Broncos (NFL) and the Denver Nuggets (NBA). Having grown considerably by the 1980s, Denver wanted a Major League Baseball team. In 1985 the National League was allowed to add two expansion teams. To be considered for an expansion team, cities vying for a team had to have plans for building a stadium in place. In order to show how much Denver desired to get a team, in 1990 voters approved a one percent sales tax for funding a stadium. Denver was granted an expansion team in 1991, they were named the Colorado Rockies. The Colorado Rockies played two seasons at Mile High Stadium while their stadium was being built. Ground was broken for a new stadium in October 1992 and opened for the 1995 season. The seating capacity plan for the stadium was at 43,000 but with attendance well above that the first two seasons the stadium was built with the seating capacity of 50,000. The present day capacity is 50,480. Most seats in the stadium are green except the 20th row in the upper deck, they are purple to represent the city’s one mile elevation mark. Prior to the completion of the stadium Coors Brewing Company based in Golden, Colorado purchased the naming rights and naming the stadium Coors Field. Coors Field was built with an underground heating system, the first stadium in the major league to do so. Coors Field has a natural grass playing surface. A number of dinosaur fossils were discovered during construction. This lead to the Rockies selecting a dinosaur for its mascot called “Dinger”.

    • Coors Field is one of the great venues in MLB. Home of the Colorado Rockies, Coors Field was built with the fan in mind. The design reminds you of baseball fields of old, with brickwork and black iron accents. The stadium offers the usual fan fare (dining, shopping, etc.), but also hosts a micro brewery on the main level. Combine that with a breathtaking view of the Rocky Mountains, and you will experience "Baseball with an Altitude", Denver style. The Rockies offer a section for the fan on a budget. Known as the Rockpile, these center field seats are cheap ($5) and give you a great view of the entire stadium. Rockpile seats are non reserved, and only available for purchase on the day of the game from the ticket window. (Warning, fans have been known to line up for hours prior to the first pitch when the Rockies are doing well (or for the rare NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs series). Coors field is situated just north of Downtown Denver, and within walking distance to Denver's LoDo (Lower Downtown) shopping/dining district. If you are coming to Denver for a game, you can find more affordable accommodations away from downtown (Englewood and Centennial come to mind). The Department of Public Transit offers light rail and bus service to and from Coors field, so you can access the stadium affordably from virtually anywhere in the Denver metro area. Parking at the stadium is not very centralized, and can range anywhere from $10 to $50. When in Denver, you can purchase tickets at any King Soopers grocery store (which my family and I usually do for about $60, for a family of 4). As with any pro sports venue, the concessions are way too pricey, but the selection is great (with an excellent selection of microbrews for the beer drinker...and, of course, plenty of Coors products). Coors field does allow you to bring in your own snacks, etc. (although, I think they prohibit coolers).
