Home of the MLB’s Colorado Rockies, Coors Field is best place to watch America’s pastime in Denver! Every year fans flock to Coors Field, contributing to the stadium’s high attendance. Modern architecture, plenty of seating and great concessions are just a few of this great ballpark’s many features.
According to the website, the stadium was constructed in 1995 as a permanent home for the Rockies (who played the ‘93 and ‘94 seasons at Mile High Field), Coors Field quickly gained popularity with Rockies fans. The stadium has a seating capacity of 50,445, expanded from the original capacity of 43,800. Due to Denver’s elevation, home run records were quickly set in the park as batters were able to take advantage of the field’s thin air. The current record of most home runs in a stadium (303) was set in 1999 at Coors Field. In 2002, a humidor was installed in the park, adding moisture to the baseballs used in Rockies games and helping create a game experience similar to the rest of the league. Still, the elevation does give batters a slight advantage, something sluggers stepping up to the plate look forward to.
