The Colorado Rockies are a Major League Baseball team based in Denver, Colorado playing in the West Division of the National League. The Mile High City became a baseball city in 1991 with the formation of the Rockies. However, it wasn’t until 1993 that the Rockies took their first swing at a game in the MLB. Taking their name from the iconic mountain range in Colorado, the Rockies call the Mile high Stadium, or Coors Field, home.
Winning their first franchise game against the Montreal Expos in 1993, the Rockies picked up highly talented draft picks like David Nied and Eric Young. In 1995, a squad called the “Blake Street Bombers” led by Larry Walker, Galarraga, Bichette and Vinny Castilla, hit 139 homers in during the season starting with taking the debut game in their ballpark 11-9. Named the Organization of the Year in 2007, the Colorado Rockies are constantly on a pursuit to bring home a coveted World Series Title.
