It’s a tradition older than words on a page, passing our games and traditions down the pipe. In today’s modern sports era, having a father or mother in a professional sports league seems to heavily increase the odds that there might be offspring in the mix. While there are legendary familial duos in sports who have even taken the field together, (hi, Ken Griffeys Sr and Jr., LeBron James would like to speak to you about Bronny) there are also simply legacies that are handed down from father or mother to daughter or son.

When GM Bill Schmidt signed Kris Bryant to a seven-year, $182 million deal on March 18, he addressed Colorado’s desire for power in the outfield, not to mention the growing need for a marquee name in the wake of recent exits by Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story. A week later, Schmidt acquired his second power hitter – Randal Grichuk -…...

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…...

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…...

On this day in 1995, Colorado won it’s first postseason game in franchise history, a 7-5 victory over Atlanta on the road in 10 innings. The Blake Street Bombers came through in a huge way, especially Vinny Castilla, against a trio of Hall of Fame starters. The final figures for 2021 attendance show the Rockies ahead of some interesting teams.…

Repeatedly gesturing with a right-hand patting against his heart and pointing outward to all those in attendance, Trevor Story said goodbye on Wednesday in a moment unlike any witnessed in Colorado Rockies franchise history. It wasn’t made unique by the two-hour rain delay that postponed the final game of the season, nor the stadium lights shutting off momentarily in the…...

After debuting out of relative prospect anonymity to hit two home runs to open the 2016 season, to becoming the youngest shortstop to ever to hit 100 in their career, to becoming the face of the franchise in 2021, Trevor Story’s reign with the Colorado Rockies may be coming to an end. Story will become a free agent this offseason…...

Regardless if the Rockies finish towards the bottom of the 2021 power rankings, it’s undeniable that they are at the top when it comes to delivering excitement in the familiar confines of Coors Field.  Their .652 (45-24) winning percentage at 2001 Blake Street is fourth-best in all of Major League Baseball. With a month remaining on the calendar, the club…...

Pull the plug. The 2021 Home Run Derby at Coors Field will not be using a humidor to store baseballs. And that might right a wrong as far as it concerns a certain Colorado Rockies’ slugger. When Trevor Story went down to one knee to swat the first of three home runs on September 5, 2018, it was recognized at…...

Fans of the Colorado Rockies may get only one player from their club selected to participate in the 2021 All-Star Game, but they’ll now have an opportunity at something even greater: Home Run Derby Champion. On Monday ahead of Opening Day 2.0, Trevor Story announced he would be competing in the derby at his home ballpark, Coors Field. “It’s something…...

The Colorado Rockies sign or make a trade for a significant bat – a rare thing but something that the facts nonetheless state does happen – and we all start dreaming specifically on how that player will look at Coors Field. It doesn’t matter where they are coming from. This new…...
