Most games we attend we go big and purchase Rockpile tickets.
I prefer to watch my baseball live, but I also have two kids at home ages nine and seven. So the only way I can support my family and get to see the Rockies home games live, is to Rockpile it.
For me its being there, the crowd, the atmosphere, taking pictures, the vibe, snagging a ball at batting practice, the smells, the sounds, ice cold beer, feasting on a Rockies Dog, wearing my colors, supporting my team, spending quality time with my kids, and beating the mad rush home.
You haven’t lived until you’ve watched an entire game from the Rockpile at Coors Field. (ok, that’s a stretch).
It’s really not that bad, but the sun and heat can do it’s damage.
Bring lots of water.
Four dollars for me, and a dollar each for my kids.
Three people watching a professional baseball game in person for six bucks.
Thats got to be the best deal in baseball
Hunter and I showed up early so we could have a decent spot in line for Autograph day.
This was the third home game of the year and our first time at Coors Field this season. There were four players signing and when they dropped the yellow rope everyone took off like a bat out of hell, trying to snag a good spot.
Hunter and I were running ourselves and we managed to get the number 4th and 5th place in Clint Barmes’s line. Clint looked nervous while signing, but he was really cool. There were a LOT of people there trying to get autographs.
Barmes signed my Rockies ball, and then he signed Hunter’s helmet, thanks Clint !
That makes four autographed baseballs so far this season.
He shook my hand then Hunter and I took off to try and get in line for another player. Unfortunately as we reached the next line we discovered it was way too long. So we went and got a couple of Rockie Dogs and settled in for the game.
The promotional item of the game was a white Rockies hat.
The Rockies lost to the D-Backs in the 10th inning 5-2. I hate losing to the D-Backs at Coors Field.
