"Top of the Fourth"
Coors Field - Bonds at Bat
Coors Field, located in Denver, Colorado is the home field of the National League's Colorado Rockies. It is named for the Coors Brewing Company of Golden, Colorado, which purchased the naming rights to the park prior to its completion in 1995. The Rockies played their first two seasons, 1993 and 1994, in Mile High Stadium before moving to Coors Field.
Coors Field has a reputation as a home run-friendly park that, arguably, equals Chicago's venerable Wrigley Field.
Coors Field was the first new stadium added in a six year plan to improve Denver's sports venues, along with the Pepsi Center and INVESCO Field at Mile High stadium.
Coors Field was originally planned to be somewhat smaller, seating only 43,800. However, after the success of the Colorado Rockies' first season, plans were altered during construction, and new seats, mostly in the center field bleacher section, were added. This section has its own informal name: "the Rockpile."
While most of the seats in Coors Field are dark green, the seats in the 20th row of the upper deck are purple. This marks the city's one mile elevation point.
