A passing rain shower during batting practice were the only dark clouds on Tuesday for the 91st MLB All-Star Game won by the American League, 5-2.  And while the three home runs hit during the affair seem paltry in comparison to the 309 hit during the previous night’s Home Run Derby, there was still traffic on the base paths and…...

It may have been only 23 years between All-Star Games, but it sure as heck felt like a century since all eyes were firmly focused on Denver for its baseball. In 1998, it was the Blake Street Bombers – OF Larry Walker, 3B Vinny Castilla and OF Dante Bichette – representing the Colorado Rockies in the Midsummer Classic, leading the…...

Bang. Zoom. Straight to the moon! With 309 baseballs planted in various sections and tiers of Coors Field, slugged over a combined 25 miles in distance, New York Mets’ Pete Alonso came out on top in the single-elimination tournament. In doing so, he becomes only the third player to win consecutive Derbys, joining Ken Griffey Jr. (1998-99) and Yoenis Céspedes…...

First, it was Larry Walker in 1998: member of the Colorado Rockies organization representing his club during the MLB All-Star Game held at Coors Field.  Now, it’s prospect Michael Toglia starting at first base on the corner of 20th and Blake Street for Sunday’s Futures Game. For good measure, the slugger playing at High-A Spokane homered in his first at…...

The NBA All-Star Game has some juice once again. Two years ago, the league changed the rules so the top two vote getters from each conference picked teams playground style instead of going with its traditional East vs. West format. That tweak has made for a more entertaining game. Team Giannis got out to a big lead early before Team…...

It’s a simple, if not overplayed, Hollywood trope. It may be a couple years overdue, but Trevor Story is an All-Star. A story of promise, then adversity and, finally, vindication. For Story, his plotline went from rookie sensation and snubbing to sophomore bust and now he is on his way to Washington, D.C. as one of three Rockies representing the…...

During the team’s eight-game losing streak, though, one name has stood out—Nolan Arenado. Arenado has made a statement to the fans and the rest of Major League Baseball that he will not go quietly…...

This is starting to get ridiculous. Despite the Colorado Rockies 6-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday at AT&T Park, the story remains the emergence of Nolan Arenado as not just an All-Star, but as a superstar. The third baseman stepped to the plate in the 1st inning with a runner on second base and one out.…...
