EY’s are Good Guys

D-Backs vs Rockies Game 3

dbacks vs Rox 111

The first bobble head game of the season and it’s a good one. You’d be hard pressed to find a Rockies fan who doesn’t love Eric Young.

EY has a place in Rockies franchise history that will last forever. Young hit the first Rockies home run at Mile High Stadium back in 1993.

What’s cool about that is EY wasn’t exactly known as a home run hitter.

Today was autograph Sunday as well. I was on the field and the only player to stop by my little area was Adam Ottavino. I didn’t have any pictures of Adam as of yet so he autographed a baseball for me.

Nice guy!

This is my friend Marianne aka R-Luv. She’s an original Rantic and it’s been a while since I’ve run into her at game. Good to see you R-Luv!!

The weather today was not too bad. Definitely not warm, but a long sleeve shirt or light jacket was plenty.

Eric Young was present on his bobble head day. His youngest son threw out the first pitch to his older brother Eric Young Jr. I think the world of both EY’s and for me this reunion was just fun to watch. Eric Young and Eric Young Jr. are both fan friendly and about as humble as they come.

Nice pitch from the lil guy known as “The Mayor”.

I love following foul and home runs baseballs into the crowd. Peoples expressions are priceless.

Ever wonder who the Jackass is who starts “The Wave” when the Rockies are batting? It’s this guy below, if you see him you have my permission to smack him in the head.

D-Backs come from behind in the 9th, score two runs and the Rockies lose this one 5-4 but take the Series.

I’m “D” the Ranter…8 more bobble heads to go.

Dante Bichette actually hit the first HR at Coors Field, by a Rockie, in a regular season game. On 4-26-95, 3-run HR in the 14th. Rico Brogna, of the Mets hit the first one earlier in the game to have the first HR at Coors Field. Although I’m sure there were some home runs hit in the exhibition series with the Yankees a few days prior.
Eric Young hit a home run in the Rockies’ first-ever home at bat on April 9, 1993, at the old Mile High, vs the Expos.

You are correct sir…Fixed and my bad.

That’s OK D. Thanks for the blog! (You said to comment whenever you read it to give you credit, right?) Hope to run into you soon!

Great pics, as usual.

Thanks Mike…”D”
