The Colorado Rockies are a relatively new baseball team, when compared to the
old teams that have been around for 100 plus years, as they have only been in
existence since 1993. The building process of Coors Field, their eventual home
stadium, took longer than expected so the Rockies ended up spending their first
two MLB seasons playing at Mile High Stadium, the home of the Denver Broncos
football team. Playing at Mile High was perfectly fine with the Rockies as they
had more room for seating and actually had the highest attendance in the Majors
their first two years as they averaged over 50,000 Colorado Rockies tickets sold
per game, helping set a new MLB attendance record of 4,483,350 total
Colorado Rockies tickets sold in one year. The high moment of the season however
was in their first home game in which they sold 80,227 Colorado Rockies tickets and
second baseman Eric Young led off the bottom of the 1st inning with a homerun.
Two years after their inaugural season, the Rockies finally moved into their new
stadium and immediately were putting up great attendance numbers with an
average of 47,500 Colorado Rockies tickets sold each game, even though their
record didn’t suggest they would have that many fans. The first real successful
season for the Rockies didn’t come until their 14th year as a franchise in 2007. That
group of players was able to make it all the way to the World Series where they
eventually lost out to the Boston Red Sox, who would win their 2nd title in 4 years.
The Rockies had to wait 2 seasons before they finally got
to move into their stadium, Coors Field. The wait helped them, as
they were able to sell many more Colorado Rockies tickets at Mile High Stadium
because of the football style seating it offered. After moving into the new Coors
Field, where the max capacity was for 50,398 Colorado Rockies tickets to be sold,
the attendance figures did drop by almost 10,000, which was due more to the lack
of performance than the actual venue.
One of the most unique features in Coors Field is that the lower level seats are
a dark green color, but when you reach the 20th row in the upper deck the seat
colors change to purple because it marks the cities one mile elevation mark. With
the higher elevation, it provides a more exciting game for those who purchased
Colorado Rockies tickets because at a higher elevation the ball flies further which
makes Coors Field a hitters ball park.
Coors Field is the only MLB ballpark that is located a mile above sea level, making it one of the most unique and exciting places to watch a baseball game.
With the Rockies playing in the highest MLB stadium and one that is still relatively
new, purchasing Colorado Rockies tickets can lead you to a ballpark that is one of a
kind and also to watching two professional teams play a game of baseball.
