As unbelievable as it may sound, the franchise now known as the Cleveland Guardians made a trade on April 1, 1983 that continues to impact their on-field roster to this day. Nearly 40 years ago, a trade tree began that included a series of players such as six-time All-Star Kenny Lofton, two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and a…...

Bud Black will not be a lame duck manager in the final year of his contract in 2022. Instead, the Colorado Rockies gave him a one-year extension that will keep him as manager through the 2023 season. Black has helmed the club since being hired in 2017, immediately taking Colorado to their first postseason since 2009. He did the same…...

A group of Greeley’s finest baseball representatives got together in one room to raise money for youth sports on Saturday and instill some wisdom to the next generation of athletes. Friends of Baseball, a group that has gathered for over 30 years, packed several days worth of activities into one weekend in northern Colorado: a fundraiser breakfast with guest speakers,…...

It may not have been a success by the standards of a 74-87 record, but there were numerous highlights and memorable moments for the Colorado Rockies in 2021. Despite exceeding expectations during a year that many suggested would result in 100 loses, the season as a whole will surely be a footnote in the 29-year history of the organization, not…...

Despite not hearing his name on Tuesday during the Baseball Hall of Fame announcement, Todd Helton took another step closer towards reaching Cooperstown. David Ortiz received 77.9% of votes from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America and was the only one on the 30 player ballot to reach the required 75% mark.  Ortiz slugged 541 home runs during his 20-year…...

Exactly two years ago, the president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum stepped to the podium and announced on MLB Network that Larry Walker was going to Cooperstown. Not only had the suspense been building for the past decade since Walker was first put up for election by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, but the early…...

Now that Gil Hodges has been selected by the Golden Days Era Committee to be enshrined in National Baseball Hall of Fame, every player who has received at least 50% of the vote in a year has made it to Cooperstown. Todd Helton appears set to reach that mark in his 4th appearance on the ballot. Before you make a…...

Two days before the first game in franchise history, the Colorado Rockies signed a player many believed would be their first member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Dale Murphy was released by the Philadelphia Phillies in the early hours of April 3, 1993  and was just two home runs short of 400 for his career. (At the time, only…...

Despite a lockout preventing typical Hot Stove League business during baseball’s offseason, the Colorado Rockies made an announcement on Friday that suggests a promising end is coming sooner than later. Colorado will play the Arizona Diamondbacks for two Spring Training games on March 18 and 19 at Las Vegas Ballpark in Las Vegas, NV. The pair of exhibition games will…...

Children born in 2004 are nearing graduation and starting to consider life after high school.  Those kids, now approaching 18-years-old, have never seen Larry Walker play for the Colorado Rockies. Even those of a more advanced age may have observed from afar, never making it down to the cathedral on 20th and Blake Street.  Of course, good parents surely showed…...

As part of the lockout enacted by Major League Baseball, transactions as well as communication have officially ceased.  This means those rumors and rumblings during the coldest months of the Hot Stove League have become null. While no one truly believes back-and-forths have been entirely nonexistent, the typical whispers to media members have become little more than a cold shoulder.…...

The existence of Coors Field has been relatively short when compared to the lifespan of professional baseball.   While the same can certainly be said of most ballparks, the uniqueness of the grounds at 20th and Blake has made for some memorable moments in the grander sense. Following construction of Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 1992, two-thirds of MLB clubs…...

After 2020 was upended by the COVID-19 pandemic and with the 2022 season in jeopardy of starting on time due to the lockout, the Colorado Rockies baseball brought back some normalcy to the Front Range in 2021 and provided a service in which should all be somewhat thankful. Sure, that service meant coupling the ups with the downs, winning some…

When the 2021 All-Star Game moved from Atlanta to Denver, a major opportunity opened up for quite possibly the last person you’d expect: Colorado Rockies bullpen catcher Aaron Muñoz. “It was one of those things that they had asked us if we were willing to catch (the Home Run Derby) and at first, I said, ‘Yeah, absolutely,’ Muñoz said about…...

If things hold as planned, the James Webb space telescope will be shot off French Guiana around 5:30 a.m. tomorrow, on Christmas morning.
